A note about Swarovski and Austrian Crystals
The crystals you know and love were dreamt up by one David Swarovski of Austria, a man who dreamed of making crystal more accessible--a "diamond for everyone".
In 1892, Swarovski patented an electric cutting machine that would allow the user to cut crystals more accurately and consistently than they could achieve by hand. Three years later, he founded the Swarovski company in Wattens, a small town in the Austrian Alps.
You might be wondering if there's any way to tell whether your Swarovski is real or a convincing imitation. As it turns out, there are eight ways to test the authenticity of your jewelry:
- There shouldn't be any bubbles in the crystal
- All facets should meet and point upwards
- Each crystal should be identical in size and cut
- If the crystals are part of the same color family, they should look identical
- There should be no scratches on the surface or any oily sheen
- Only Swarovski pearls are sold strung together; crystals are sold loose
- The crystals should have a shine comparable to a diamond
Remember: since these crystals are machine-made, they are far more consistent than naturally-occurring crystals and gems. Identical crystals are in fact a sign of good workmanship and authenticity.
Furthermore, Swarovski crystals are designed with painstaking attention to detail. Imperfections in the crystals like scratches, bubbles, or a lackluster shine wouldn't meet the company's quality standards.
