Swarovski, crystal jewellery and accessories
Swarovski is a world leader in the manufacture of highly precision-cut crystals. Established over 100 years ago, this family-owned company supplies the highest quality crystal components to the fashion, jewellery and design industry. Swarovski's own designs are distributed through a worldwide network of own outlets and partners. Several times a year, Swarovski launches jewellery collections and accessories of classic elegance but also extremely modern and trendy. Sparkling objects for decorations and collections, gift ideas for any occasion and accessories for home and living of a beautiful beauty complete the product range. The fervent collectors can become members of the Swarovski Crystal Society, where they can purchase an exclusive limited edition piece annually. In addition, they have the opportunity to participate in special events. Swarovski was founded in 1895 by Daniel Swarovski, an inventor and visionary from Bohemia: he invented a machine that could cut crystal stones for jewellery much faster and with much greater accuracy than the manual processes used to date. In the Tyrolean village of Wattens, he set up his own company for the production of crystals, thus revolutionising the fashion and jewellery industry. The crystals soon became an indispensable element of the design. Swarovski is still a family business, run by Daniel Swarovski's successors.
