West Virginia Artisans crafts are showcased around gifts from Swarovski Crystals and Jewelry. 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.
We now carry a Swarovski line of crystals figurines and jewelry. You can bring a trendy touch of glamour to your smartphone decorated with a fully crystalized gradient pattern and finished with a descreet calfskin logo stamped Swarovski. Priced to sale at 1/2 off the regular price.
