Swarovski Star > Rockefeller Center Tree

Rockefeller Center welcomed the holidays Wednesday with the unveiling of this year’s Christmas tree topper.

A handful of people braved the rain to unwrap the Swarovski star, which will sit atop the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree throughout the holiday season.

The star is comprised of 2,500 crystals and weighs 550 pounds, and will be the largest ornament to ever grace the Christmas tree.
