The History of Swarovski
The concept of Swarovski crystals was born when Daniel Swarovski invented the automatic cutting machine in 1892. Three years later he established a crystal cutting factory in Wattens, Austria using a process he and his three sons created many years ago. The quality of each crystal is dependent on the production method and the processing of the raw material. Both factors play a major role in determining its brilliance and the measure of its value. Swarovski crystals contain a combination of natural minerals and quartz sand, which are cooled slowly to avoid stress and inclusions.
Swarovski crystals aren’t gemstones or even crystals, but rather a form of glass. Crystal admirers around the world are so grateful to Daniel Swarovski for his ingenuity and dedication. He brought something to society that has given it value and has lasted all of these years.
The Diamond Shine
To produce a diamond-like effect the crystal glass is precisely cut and then polished. This process is a Swarovski patented process that gives the crystal a high-quality finish. The crystals are often further enhanced by coating the glass with an aurora borealis or an AB coating. The coating gives the surface a rainbow-like appearance to simulate dispersion from a diamond.
