Now, the highlight of this page!
SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL: Began in 1895 as a family business, the company has grown into an international concern & is still currently family owned & run by the Swarovski family.

Started by Daniel Swarovski who patented a machine that could cut crystal stones with precision and consistency from Bohemia & moved to Wattens in the Austrian Tyrol where his invention could be powered by water, it is now one of the largest and most successful Austrian companies, with a vast international market for its diverse products. The company employs more than 12,400 employees internationally & has captured the world's imagination with its wide range of crystal miniatures & jewelleries. A visit to its showroom will tempt you with all its delights & soon you may even turn into an ardent collector :-)

Swarovski currently has 440,000 members in the Swarovski Collectors Society (SCS) in 25 countries with a range of 100,000 products!
