For more than 113 years there has been one name that has been consistently and inextricably linked to precision cut crystal and fashion. The founder of the company, Daniel Swarovski I, was born in 1862 in Northern Bohemia. This happened to be the centre of a flourishing crystal and costume jewelry industry. In such a setting it’s perhaps unsurprising that Daniel was fascinated with the colorful brilliance of faceted stones from his earliest years. Moreover, as a young man he showed an aptitude for invention and entrepreneurship.
Today the family company employs more than 20,000 and with a presence in more than 120 countries. In 1895 Daniel Swarovski moved to Wattens in Austria where he could generate his own electricity from alpine streams and keep the secrets of his inventions safe. He went into business at a time when the arts, literature, music and science were cross-pollinating right across Central Europe. Surrounded by the inspiration of Mitteleuropa and all that it represented, the company was steeped in culture, innovation and creativity from the outset.
