Crystal and Glass Jewelry

Crystal and Glass JewelryWhile it may not be labeled precious, crystal and glass jewelry can look every bit as
good as its gemstone equivalents, especially if it’s made using precision-cut
crystals from a company like Swarovski. The Austrian crystal and glass jewelry
behemoth has been producing top quality lead crystal since 1895 and has cornered
the market on fine, fashionable glass jewelry. The crystals boast a unique refractory quality that gives their surface a beguiling rainbow appearance.

Thanks to its affordability, crystal and glass jewelry can incorporate large
pieces of crystal for use in pendants and necklaces. More fine jewelry designers
have begun to include crystal jewelry in their repertoires in order to bring
down price points without sacrificing style or quality.

One type of crystal jewelry that was extremely popular during the Art Deco
era and has since been revived as a high-end designer favorite uses rock
crystal, the clear variety of quartz, which is the second most abundant mineral
in the earth’s crust (after feldspar).

Crystal and glass jewelry items range from standard pieces of jewelry to
figurines and related glass products made from the same finely cut glass. A
number of fashion designers have taken advantage of the brilliance of crystals
by sewing them into their clothing. For example, items made with Swarovski’s
Crystallized series of crystals include high fashion pieces such as gowns and
wedding dresses.
