November 30, 2023

Forget the standard holiday postcard scenes, New York City's Rockefeller Center has upped the ante yet again! The colossal Christmas tree standing proud in the plaza is not just any tree—it's the backdrop to the most jaw-dropping, selfie-worthy moment of the year, thanks to the Swarovski Star blazing at its peak.

The Star That Outshines the City's Lights

Imagine a star so lavish it took two whole years to craft. That's what renowned architect Daniel Libeskind brings to the table with a 900-pound, 9-foot-wide stunner that's literally covered in three million crystals. This isn't just bling—it's the Godzilla of all things shiny and you've got to see it to believe it!

This isn't just a star; it's a story of resilience and hope, shimmering high above the city streets. Libeskind's creation goes beyond sparkle, it's a beacon calling out to everyone with its message of peace and unity. This star doesn't just twinkle—it roars with the spirit of the holidays.
