Swarovski Crystal Beads and Pendants
For over 120 years Swarovski Crystals have been cutting crystals with perfect precision. This fifth-generation family business has been industry leaders in development and innovation, and are considered the benchmark against which all other human-made lead glass crystals are judged. Only the best materials are used in the production of Swarovski Crystals. Quartz, minerals and sand are processed into the real crystal in a complex process, the exact output and process remain a guarded family secret. The high lead content of Swarovski crystals and a greater number of precision machined facets (8 facets versus 12 or 14) give Swarovski it's beautiful fire and sparkle
In 1956, together with Christian Dior, Swarovski developed the "Aurora Borealis" (AB) effect, which gives a shimmering rainbow sparkle to the crystals.
Whether used in jewellery, embroidery or accessories, Swarovski Crystals will make your project shine
