Swarovski Crystals and Elements
What is Swarovski Crystal?
Swarovski crystals are man-made gems manufactured in Austria. In 1892, Daniel Swarovski invented a machine for making precision-cut, beautiful, high quality lead glass crystals using quartz, sand, and minerals. The exact proportions of these raw materials has remained a company secret. This specialised manufacturing process ensures the highest possible degree of precision which produces brilliant crystals. For five generations, the Swarovski family has continued the tradition of making the most recognised crystals in the world out of their factory in Wattens, Austria.
What is Swarovski Elements?
Swarovski Elements is the brand name for the loose precision-cut Swarovski crystals used by the fashion, jewellery, and accessories industries. Genuine Swarovski crystals are used in products designed and made by other manufacturers. The “Made with Swarovski Elements” label on the products certifies that the piece was made with authentic Swarovski crystals.
