Designer Swarovski

Swarovski is an Austrian company that makes high-quality rhinestones, beautiful cut crystals, costume jewellery, and other glass-related items. The company was founded by Daniel Swarovski (1862-1956), the son of a glass faceter. In 1892, Daniel developed a new mechanized technique for faceting glass crystals, creating a sparkling, diamond-like chaton." He then started a factory (and company) in Wattens, Austria (in the Tyrolean Alps) in 1895. In the 1970's, the company expanded to Providence, Rhode Island ,and then later moved to Cranston, Rhode Island. In 1955, Swarovski and Christian Dior developed the iridescent Aurora Borelais stone. The company began a line of rhinestone costume jewellery in 1977. Since 1988, the Swarovski logo has been a swan. Before this date the logo was an edelweiss flower.
