Refined jewels, brilliant crystal creations, extravagant watches and stunning fragrances, Swarovski brings sparkle to people’s everyday lives.

Here you can learn everything about the Swarovski brand, from the most popular pieces of jewelry, the company history to the most successful marketing campaigns.
The world market leader for crystals has already produced more than 100,000 colors, facets and shapes. This includes the smallest crystal jewelry stone, as well as the largest crystal in the world. The smallest crystal stone measures just 0.8 millimeters in diameter and has 17 facets. One of Swarovski’s stones has even made it into the Guinness Book of Records, the “Swarovski Centenar”. It measures 40 centimeters in diameter and shimmers with a full 100 facets. Both stones have made it into the Crystal Worlds exhibition.
There are crystals, there are gemstones – and then there is Swarovski. Swarovski a company that everyone knows, a billion dollar company. The bottom line is that the Austrian company only makes glass, and yet it has created a rare name for itself. The play of colors, as well as the sparkle when light refracts in crystal, fascinated Swarovski’s founder early on. In 1892, the then 29-year-old made a major breakthrough with the first grinding machine that cut crystal jewelry stones more precisely than by hand.
In 1895, Swarovski founded his own company in Watten, a small town on the Inn River. When choosing the location, the young entrepreneur made a point of being far away from the center of the crystal and glass industry in Bohemia at the time, but he also needed a lot of water for cutting and cooling for production. Today, the Swarovski factory site is a major attraction in Watten and has become a real magnet for visitors. For the 100th anniversary in 1995, the experience museum “Crystal Worlds” was opened.
One thing is still secret to this day: the production of the glittering stones. The world market leader Swarovski does not even guarantee employees from other departments access to the large production halls, which are secured with computer-locked sluices. But one thing is certain: the crystal stones are made from quartz sand, which is processed into a viscous mass and shaped. By grinding, the stones are given a variety of facets on which the light then finally refracts in a sparkling manner. More than 600 developers and researchers are concerned with the purity of the crystals, the precision of the cut or the conductivity of the machines produced in-house.
Victoria Swarovski – The definition of a power woman. She has given her name a whole new meaning. With numerous talents, such as singing, dancing and hosting, the Austrian makes the media world sparkle. She knew early on that she didn’t want to rest on the success of the family business. Already as a young girl she discovered the world of singing and was a member of several choirs. 2010 followed her first single “One in a Million” with which she made it directly into the Top 50 of the German, as well as Austrian charts. It is especially important to the artist to be recognized as an artist and not to be reduced to a well-known name that has nothing to do with her musical art.
