Throughout history, jewelry has gained more than the ‘simple accessory’ status. Women have adorned their bodies with gold necklaces and diamond bracelets to polish their beauty and add finesse to their look. Indeed, you can easily feel naked when not wearing a pair of earrings. And one stone shines brighter them all in your jewelry box. Swarovski earrings are renowned their exquisite craftsmanship and inner brilliance.
Below, we’ve rounded up three designer brands that have handcrafted the famous precious stone into some stylish pieces of jewelry.
Swarovski Earrings – A Pair of Diamonds for Everyone
‘A diamond for everyone’ was Daniel Swarovski’s motto and, ultimately, his life endeavor. When he invented the revolutionary electric machine in 1892 that could cut a diamond to release the brightness and radiance inside, he was following in the footsteps of previous cutters in search of perfection.
The Bohemian jeweler founded his crystal cutting company in 1895. In Wattens, he had access to local hydroelectricity. He harnessed that power to feed the grinding process that he had just invented and patented. His crystals needed a combination of natural minerals and quartz sand to fire them up. Afterward, they would be cooled down slowly so as not to break and chip from within.
Once Swarovski polished his stones to display every facet of their inner glamor, it didn’t take long for the Swarovski to become a household name among the upper-class society of the great dames of the 1920s. In no time, dresses dripped and glimmered with Swarovski.
