On March 16 1667 hailstones the size of cobbles rained down on Sir Christopher Wren's London. Wren, marvelling at their regular shape and exquisite faceting, faithfully sketched a few of these extraordinary stones and presented his findings to the Royal Society on March 28 1667.
To commemorate this remarkable natural event, and to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the completion of Wren's St Paul's Cathedral, Swarovski has created a set of crystal hailstone mementoes based on Wren's sketches. The Swarovski crystal material delivers a dazzling impression of the wonder Dr Wren would have felt seeing the hailstones fall.
