If you have admired any luxury ornaments, lamps, or even monuments with crystals gems that stand out for their glitter and sparkle, you were probably looking at items made of Swarovski Crystal, a man-made gem that was patented back in 1892 in the Northern Bohemia by Daniel Swarovski, the son of an experienced glass cutter who owned a small glass factory.

Ever since its discovery, the Crystal stands out as a major family trade mark and brand internationally. The prominence of the gem comes from its brilliance credited to the superior production technique, unique cutting, polishing and a careful choice of materials used in cutting the gem.

Over the years Swarovski Crystal has been in use, its prominence has grown by the day. A good demonstration of this fact is in the outstanding luxury art pieces upon which it has been used. A good example is the iconic snowflake of Rockefeller centre in NYC, among others. It has also been used in interior design to complement furniture. Examples include handmade chandeliers and beautiful ceiling lamps from the famous Italian manufacturer Mechini.

If you want to get a unique effect from the furniture in a room, you only need a few pieces of art. Possible options can include ceiling and wall lamps whose colors and ornamental value are easy to enhance using the crystals. When you light bulbs surrounded by crystals, the sparkle engulfs the entire room.

It is not in doubt that Swarovski crystal has a magical effect on anything if used correctly. Because most items are handmade, each piece stands out as original and very special. Demand for the gem will grow as more people continue buying products from the gem.
