Many Swarovski Silver Crystal lovers believe that the raw material used in the manufacturing of our objects occurs naturally, like rock crystal from which containers and spheres have been carved since time immemorial. Swarovski Crystal is made at the factory in Wattens using basic formulae, perfected by Daniel Swarovski and his three sons many years ago. The quality is dependent on the production method and the processing of the raw material. Both factors play a major role in determining its brilliance and the measure of its value.
