Swarovski Elements is the brand name for the loose Swarovski crystals used by the fashion, jewellery, and accessories industries.
Swarovski (pronounced Swor-ov-ski) is a company known for its amazing crystals in the form of figurines, finished jewellery, beads, and jewellery components. The company's patented technique helps create a high-quality crystal that has beautiful lustre and sparkle to it. While there are many other types of crystal beadsand jewellery components on the market, Swarovski is still known for making the highest quality crystal in the industry.
Daniel Swarovski, (aka David Swartz), was the son of a glass cutter in Bohemia, Austria so it is no surprise that he became very skilled at glass making and glass-cutting. Swarovski uses quartz, sand, and minerals—the exact proportions of these raw materials has remained a company secret—to create their super sparkly glass.
In 1892, he invented and patented the brand-new glass-cutting machine that used hydro-electricity to be used in cutting the crystal glass.
Genuine Swarovski Crystals are used in all our Cuff Links, which are Lead and Nickel FREE
Many consider glass to have no metaphysical properties, but others who are aware, realise that glass has energy like all else in the Universe, and thus has its own set of properties. Glass is a melding of the traditional four elements, because through fire and air the silica earth element is made molten and transmuted into a liquid only to return to its earthly state as an apparent solid. It can be made to focus light or allow light to pass through invisibly or carry light waves great distances through tiny strands.
Metaphysically, glass represents and carries the energies of transformation, merging of elements, rebirth, focus and communication. The colours of the glass bring the vibrations of those specific colour energies. All Feng Shui Bagua Light Catchers have a Swarovski faceted prism to disperse and deflect one’s negative chi. The main purpose of faceted crystal balls in Feng Shui is to transmute energy. When hard, or negative energy enters the ball, the facets deflect the energy, breaking it up and turning it into gentle, or positive energy.
For people who suffer from stress arthritis or joint disease, wearing Swarovski crystals often brings a level of relief that cannot be explained. They are also believed to relieve the symptoms of poison oak, ivy, and sumac. It is also believed that crystals can ease the symptoms of emotional illness such as depression.
