Inspired by his vision of “a diamond for everyone”, Daniel Swarovski founded Swarovski in Wattens, Austria, in 1895. Our success can be traced back to Daniel’s electric cutting machine which produced crystals of unprecedented luster and perfection; innovation and design has been central to the Swarovski story ever since.
Today, Swarovski is a major patron of design, working with cultural institutions such as the Palace of Versailles, London’s V&A Museum, Design Miami/ Basel and Vienna Design Week to support their programs. Continuing its ongoing commitment to creativity, Swarovski collaborates with talent in the fields of fashion, jewelry, design, stage and screen to push the boundaries of what crystal and the creative mind can achieve.
