As one of jewelry’s main goals is to make you sparkle, stand out and feel great it comes as no surprise that Swarovski elements play an important role in the creation of it.
Jewelry consists of small decorative items worn for personal embellishment, such as brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Jewelry may be attached to the body or the clothes, and the term is restricted to durable ornaments. For many centuries metal, often combined with precious stones, has been the normal material for jewelry.
Precious stones such as the diamond, the ruby, sapphire, emerald and opal were traditionally used in creating jewelry intended to embellish the outfits of those with a certain social status or political standing. The fact that these stones cost a fortune each tended to leave those without the economic ease to purchase them somewhat out of the equation.
This all ended however, with the creation of Swarovski crystal jewelry. In 1892 Daniel Swarovski patented an electric cutting machine that facilitated the production of crystal glass. The Swarovski Crystal range includes crystal glass sculptures and miniature, jewelry and couture, home decor and chandeliers.
As these glass pieces resembled gemstones, it comes as no surprise that crystal glass Swarovski elements quickly became a material vastly used in the creation of all types of jewelry including earrings, bracelets, necklaces and other embellishment items such as brooches.
What makes Swarovski crystal jewelry special is the reflection of light it creates. To achieve this, Swarovski coats some of its products with special metallic chemical coatings. For example, Aurora Borealis, or "AB", gives the surface a rainbow appearance. Swarovski Signity creates synthetic and natural gemstones which are most commonly used in jewelry making.
