In 1892, Daniel Swarovski invented a revolutionary machine that allowed crystal cuts to be more precise than ever before. This transformed the entire crystal industry. Three years later, Swarovski started the Swarovski Company in Wattens, Tyrol, Austria. In 1919, the brand was registered as Tyrolit with the Innsbruck Bank of Commerce and Trade.
Throughout the 1930s and 40s, Swarovski expanded its line to include crystal-studded ribbons, glass reflectors, binoculars, scopes and telescopes. In 1956 and working with famed fashion designer Christian Dior, Swarovski developed the Aurora Borealis effect, which is valued because it enhances a cut crystal’s sparkle. Swarovski uses a special metallic chemical coating to provide these crystals with their recognizable rainbow appearance. Other coatings used by Swarovski include Crystal Transmission, Volcano, Aurum, and Dorado.
In 1965, Swarovski started producing magnificent chandeliers and 10 years later, they launched their decorative crystal figurine collection. In 1977, Swarovski’s first jewelry line hit the runways.
All Swarovski products feature a mark. The original mark was an edelweiss flower. This was replaced by the S.A.L logo until they started using their current mark: a swan.
