ABOUT TOUCHSTONE CRYSTAL by SWAROVSKI
120 years and growing…
Swarovski continues to add sparkle to people’s lives with Touchstone Crystal, their fastest-growing social selling business. Backed by our strong heritage and quality reputation, Touchstone Crystal brings the magic of Swarovski crystal directly to women’s doorsteps.
In 1891, Daniel Swarovski’s vision was to create “a diamond for everyone”. He invented an electric machine that cut more accurately than ever before, marking the beginning of a new era for crystal. From American jazz halls to Parisian couture houses, dresses dripped with beads and Swarovski crystals, reflecting the excitement of the 1920s.
In the 20th century, Swarovski unleashed incredible opportunities for designers of haute couture. The “Aurora Borealis effect”, developed with Christian Dior in the 1950s, gave crystals a mesmerizing opalescent finish and the fashion world new creative possibilities. The crystals graced the silver screen in the century’s most iconic films such as “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” On May 19th, 1962, Marilyn Monroe sang to the American President in a flesh-colored gown covered in Swarovski crystal, which was auctioned off in 1999 for 1.26 million dollars.
Inspired by decades of creative collaborations and expertise, Swarovski opened its first boutique in the 1980s. The world’s fascination with a new brand of jewelry and crystal figurines began. With the introduction of the annual limited edition Christmas ornament, a new tradition was born for collectors around the world.
For over 35 years, Swarovski has captivated the world with unique pieces like the Nirvana cocktail ring, the Slake bracelet and its signature Swiss movement watches. In 2008, the magical «Crystal Forest» interior design was implemented in stores worldwide, welcoming shoppers to an architectural crystal wonderland. Today, Karlie Kloss shines in a global advertising campaign as the modern woman embodying the spirit and essence of the Swarovski brand.
