An Austrian producer of crystals, Swarovski is renowned for creating luxurious crystal jewellery and accessories that have adorned the bodies of the rich and famous for over a century, and counting.
Swarovski was founded in 1895 by Czechoslovakian Daniel Swarovski, the son of a glass cutter who managed to complete an apprenticeship at a small glass factory owned by his father. During this time, Daniel followed in his father’s footsteps, becoming a masterful and skillfully trained glass-cutter and beginning the production of crystal glass using an electric cutting machine that he himself made. The expansion of luxury and opulence within fashion in the 1920s, saw the popularity of crystal glass increase immensely, particularly for designers of haute couture who experienced a wealth of opportunities with the innovation of crystal-embellished apparel. Forever changing the fashion world, the birth of Swarovski was built on Daniel’s desire and brand objective to create "a diamond for everyone”. Subsequently, Swarovski instigated an affordability of crystals that the world had never seen before.
In 1977, Swarovski entered the US jewellery market and opened its first shop in 1980. Their range and collection typically includes crystal glass sculptures, jewellery, couture, home decor and chandeliers. Crystal glass is produced by melting the mixture of quartz sand, minium, potash, and soda at high temperatures; which Swarovski have been able to master through 120 years of craftsmanship and uniquely prolific design. Their attention to detail is beyond compare and their focus on methods of refining crystals incorporates techniques such as beading, pave, bezel and prong setting.
The Swarovski headquarters exists in Wattens, Austria, and has remained there since the company's birth. The business has an outstanding reach of close to 2,800 stores in 170 countries with every corner of the world reaching for a taste of luxury. The logo of the swan is one that is recognised throughout the world and represents strength, beauty and poise and their passion for innovation and design has made them the world's leading jewellery and accessory brand with a vision of retaining that position.
