Swarovski Crystals - Quality or Cheap Glass?
Do you know the difference between “Quality” Genuine Swarovski Crystals versus “Cheap” Glass Crystals?
The method of production and processing of raw resources are important factors in the quality of finished crystals. Swarovski uses only the finest materials to fashion faceted lead glass that is known around the world for its brilliance and value.
Superior production, materials, cutting, and polishing are what set Swarovski crystals apart from other glass works.
According to Swarovski, “Cutting hard materials such as crystal and gems, in such a way that they have a hundred identical facets in several directions, is a very complicated task; each direction of the reflected light must first be calculated by computer, then this has to be simulated in 3D, optimized and finally converted into control programs for complex machinery.”
