Gem Visions by SWAROVSKI GEMS™

Daniel Swarovski pioneered precision-cutting technology for jewellery stones and founded his enterprise. Known worldwide for meticulous craftsmanship, quality, and technical skill, Swarovski offered a range of genuine gemstones and created stones for the market. This service evolved into the SWAROVSKI GEMS™ brand, now synonymous for premium quality in gemstones that include genuine sapphire, rhodolite, peridot, amethyst, citrine, black spinel, genuine topaz, marcasite, zirconia and synthetic stones.
In the late 1800's, Swarovski discovered a formula for making beautiful, high quality lead glass crystals. Since then, the Swarovski family has continued the tradition of making the most recognized crystals in the world out of their factory in Wattens, a market community in Austria.
Swarovski Gems has been publishing its annual GemVisions jewellery and gemstone trend reports for two decades, each year announcing a set of themes tailored to inspire jewellery designers and retailers.
