Swarovski Crystal Beads Deliver Superior Clarity and Brilliance
Swarovski crystal beads are crystal clear, unlike lower quality competitors, which often have blemishes and swirl marks, air bubbles, or an oily sheen. This does not happen by accident. Such quality and clarity are difficult to produce. The Swarovski crystal making process relies on quality materials and precise manufacturing. Swarovski beads are a form of lead glass, comprised of a proprietary blend of quartz, sand, minerals, and about 32% lead which create the refractory effect that gives Swarovski crystals their signature sparkle. Though they are called crystals, Swarovski crystal pendants and beads are actually closer in composition to gemstones, with a higher refraction index than true crystal, more like a diamond. The inventor of Swarovski crystals envisioned them as a more accessible “diamond for everyone.”
The Cut of Swarovski Crystals is Superior
After they are formed, each Swarovski crystal is precisely cut. The cut pattern that will produce maximum light refraction is first calculated by computer, then simulated in 3-D and optimized before being applied to the stones. Advanced cutting machinery is then used to apply the pattern of facets – up to 100 total per stone, each capable of bending light in different directions for maximum effect. Unlike imitators, each facet and juncture on Swarovski stones points up, meeting in a single, precise point, similar to the facets on a diamond. They are later polished, then sometimes coated to refract light in different color spectrums. The complicated process of creating each crystal is a tremendous technological feat.
