Swarovski celebartes its 20th anniversary with crystal collection
Since its founding Swarovski has lent brilliance to the lives of many by mastering the art of producing precision cut crystals. Revered as the connoisseur of excellence in innovative designs and techniques, Swarovski is celebrating its 20th Anniversary with the release of 20 new bags and 20 new pieces of jewelry. The range has been created using its latest innovation, the Pointiage technique, which involves a method of hand-setting, which ultimately enhances the crystal and illuminates its sparkle. This Autumn-Winter 2009/10 collection includes oversized rings, necklaces, gorgeous clutches and evening bags, each presenting an elegant and timeless aesthetic. The exclusive collection uses vintage stones studded on necklaces and bags with some of the bags requiring more than 30 hours of work to embroider the delicate crystal beads.
