One of the main reasons behind the splendid success of Swarovski is that they bring in a new range every 3 months. The older designs are removed from the market.
The Swarovski Crystal range includes crystal sculptures and miniatures, jewellery and couture, home decor, chandeliers, and beads and rhinestones for manufacturers and artists. Swarovski crystal contains a minimum of about 32% lead to maximize refraction and this makes it optically very pure.
In order to create a crystal that allows light to refract in a rainbow spectrum, Swarovski coats some of its crystals with special metallic chemical coatings. Aurora Borealis, or "AB", is one of the most popular coatings, and gives the surface a rainbow oil slick appearance. All the seven colors of the rainbow are refracted by these crystals including ultra violet and infrared. Other coatings include Crystal Transmission, Volcano, Aurum, and Dorado. Coatings are applied to 50% of an object, however some are coated two times, and thus are designated AB 2X, Dorado 2X and so on.
The original Swarovski logo was an edelweiss flower, but was replaced with the current swan logo in 1988. All sculptures are marked with this logo. A recent development was the 2004 release of a new copyrighted cut, Xilion, designed to optimise the brilliance of Roses (crystal components with flat backs) and Chatons (diamond cut).
Swarovski Austrian Full Lead Crystal beads are used by manufacturers allover the world for designing jewelry.
The Daniel Swarovski Corporation was founded in 1895 and is a four generation family business supplying approximately 75% of the worlds full lead crystal. Swarovski continues to be the leading supplier of full cut Crystal. Each bead is expertly faceted and polished to extract every sparkle of its fiery brilliance. Dedication to quality and excellence is what results in exquisite jewelry designs.
