As a young man, Daniel visited exhibitions in Germany that showed the public the benefits of electricity, and was inspired to create a new method for cutting crystals that involved electricity. In 1892, he started to apply for patents for the new electrical cutting machine he made. The methods employed by this machine replicated and surpassed laborious non-mechanized processes carried out by glass cutters.
With this new innovative method under his belt, Daniel eventually set up a factory in Wattens, Austria, in 1913 with two other co-founders. The reason the factory came so long after Daniel had perfected his cutting method was because he wanted to ensure that the Swarovski’s company’s cutting and polishing methods were the best in the world.
The same dedication to perfection and quality can be seen in the Swarovski Company today, an enterprise that employs over 20,000 people all over the world. Regardless of the product – whether it be crystals for jewellery, figurines, furnishing, tableware, optical instruments of watched—Swarovski ensures that every piece produced is flawless. The company also maintains its spirit of innovation and has consistently been at the helm of breakthroughs in the crystal glass industry.
Owning a Swarovski crystal isn’t just having a nice piece of jewellery, it’s possessing an indescribably beautiful piece of engineered, innovative and sophisticated design.
