When it comes to crystals, there's one name that comes to mind when you think of the world's most extraordinary - Swarovski.
Swarovski crystals originated from Austria back in the 1800s, with the first crystal cutting machine invented in the 1890s by Czechoslovakian Daniel Swarovski. This electric cutting machine was designed to cut high quality crystals, using hydroelectricity, and a mixture of quartz, sand and minerals. The machine melts silicon oxide powder with lead - forming a spectacular type of glass that shines a rainbow effect. And this is what you see today when you see Swarovski crystals.
Although the world now knows what's actually in them, only those close to the company know exactly which proportion of quartz, sand and minerals is used to create these stunning crystals. For this small business that started in the late 1800s, Swarovski has grown to become a world-wide phenomenon with more than 25,000 staff world-wide.
Why Do People Love Swarovski?
It might surprise you, but Swarovski crystals are not actually crystals at all, nor are they gems. They're glass. But they're made so uniquely, with a process that no other company could ever replicate efficiently, that they are as rare and popular as diamonds themselves. The process of making them has changed dramatically since the 1800s as technology has advanced, and today, they're simulated on a 3D computer, optimised and converted. Then the machine cuts them. It's this unique process that has led to the increase in popularity and price.
On eBay, you'll find an abundance of Swarovski products - from rings and bracelets, to home décor, chandeliers and even sculptures. Here are some of the products you can shop for online:

From earrings to necklaces, bracelets to rings; you'll find Swarovski fashion jewellery to suit.

They're a great idea for Christmas presents, Valentine's Day, birthdays or anniversaries - or you might just want to show her you care! Sets come complete with necklaces and earrings, bracelets and rings, anklets and toe rings - and all of the above. They're also fantastic gift ideas for your bridal party (or the bride herself)! Simply search eBay for a design that suits.
Although Swarovski originally supplied crystals to other watch manufacturers, they have started producing their own watches in recent years. There's no doubt these are superior quality - and people are loving them. The women's range includes an abundance of design options, some including hundreds of crystals; others including one or two. The amount of bling you prefer is really the only question. Some of the most popular watches from the women's range include the Swarovski Citra, Lovely Crystals and the Crystalline collection. However, there's no doubt that each watch design holds a special piece of history - and it's worth shopping around to find a style that stands out amongst the crowd.
Swarovski not only offers watches for women, but their men's watches offer a timeless gift for the man in your life. The men's watches are created with a little silver-tone sunray dial, and a faceted crystal at the centre. The crystal is presented in a stainless steel case, transparent case back and a leather strap. If you (or your man) like to look good, Swarovski men's watches are a timeless addition to any wardrobe.
Swarovski Wedding Dresses
There's no doubt that your wedding day is one of the most special days you'll ever experience in your life. And for many women, this is accentuated by one thing - THE DRESS! You'll shimmer and shine your way down the aisle and become the envy of those around you - while also lighting up the life of the one you're walking towards, when you have a wedding dress that is glittered with Swarovski crystals. One of the best things about buying your wedding dress on eBay is you can get a stunning, true quality dress for a bargain price.
