Swarovski - a history

The founder of the company, Daniel Swarovski, was born in northern Bohemia (now called the Czech Republic) about 20km away from the Polish border. The alteration and creation of fine, delicate materials was obviously in his blood, as his father was the owner of a glass factory and was a glass cutter himself. The young Daniel served an apprenticeship at said factory, learning the craft from his father and the other skilled artisans under his employ. In 1892, the enterprising young man invented and patented a electrically powered cutting machine that facilitated the production of crystal glass.

1895 – an auspicious year for the Swarovskis. It was in this year that Daniel teamed up with a financier Armand Kossman and another man, Franz Weis, to create what is now known as the Swarovski company. To take advantage of the hydroelectricity found in Wattens, Tyrol (in Austria), it was there that the company elected to establish a crystal cutting factory.


This hydroelectricity was necessary, as the crystal cutting process patented by Daniel Swarovski was at this time extremely energy intensive. The goal of the company was to create “a diamond for everyone” – this would be done by making crystals affordable.

Quickly (in 1899) the business expanded to France, where the French folk began to Buy Swarovski Crystals. Less than a century later, after many a year of toil and innovation, Swarovski Crystal entered the U.S. market (in 1977 to be exact). The rest is history.

Swarovski Products

Swarovski produces products such as jewellery, miniatures, home decor, rhinestones, chandeliers and glass sculptures. All products are marked with a logo, which has changed several times with the inevitable passage of time – originally it was an edelweiss flower, replaced by the letters S.A.L. which was in turn usurped by the currently in use swan logo, stil going strong since its introduction to the brand in 1988.

Since 2012, Swarovski glass has been completely lead free. It is created using a blend of potash, soda, quartz sand and other ingredients – these are blended at extremely high temperatures to create that distinctive “Swarovski look”. The refractive effect of Swarovski glass is achieved by coating products with special metallic coatings that allow the glass to reflect light across the rainbow spectrum and achieve a positively dazzling effect.


Swarovski has developed a unique technology that preserves the brilliance and brightness of crystals without the use of lead dioxide. The hologram on the back of the package contains the inscription: advanced crystal superior brilliant lead-free. Thanks to this, Swarovski crystals are safe to use.
