Hypnotic is a new line of crystal jewelry that was recently introduced by Baccarat. The stones are known as scarabee, a type of fully-leaded crystal, and come in blue, yellow and clear. The unique thing about this crystal is that it is not clear. Instead, the stones shimmer with a wide array of colors, producing an "hypnotic" effect when you look at them. They yellow scarabee seems to be nearly 1/3 more expensive than the blue, while the clear crystals are the least expensive of the set. All pieces are set in either sterling silver or 18K gold in this collection. The Hypnotic Cocoon Necklace comes in blue, clear and yellow (pictured here) and the pendant dangles on a 24-inch chain. Prices for this style are $990 for clear, $1,150 for blue, and $3,490 for yellow.
