People perusing the Missed Connections listings in Chicago, New York City, and Philadelphia recently might have seen posts like “Cute Dress Girl at Franklin Mortgage – m4w” or “Bright red lips w/ wrist tattoo at big star – m4w.” But these aren’t from love struck guys on Craigslist, these are from Swarovski — the crystal company.

Swarovski wasn’t looking for an individual, just the women reading these listings. The postings compliment the reader for their confidence and offer to mail them a sparkly Swarovski bracelet for responding.
