A little about Swarovski & S.A.L Swarovski Jewellery
Swarovski originally started as Swarovski Glass, which was founded in 1895 by Armand Kosman and Franz Weisand (using Daniel Swarovski’s glass-cutting expertise and his family name). Swarovski Glass is the brand name for a range of luxury precision-cut crystal glass. The Swarovski Crystal range includes crystal sculptures and miniatures, jewelry and couture, home decor and chandeliers.
In 1977 Swarovski began manufacturing their own jewellery line, S.A.L (Swarovski America, Ltd). The “S.A.L” mark was only used from 1977 until 1988 when it was discontinued because it proved to be unrecognisable to consumers. Therefore, S.A.L jewellery is very rare.
After 1988, S.A.L was replaced with the famous swan trademark that continues to represent Swarovski jewellery today.
Why we love costume jewellery
Classic and elegant, costume jewellery can add uniqueness and flair to any outfit, smart or casual, at an affordable price. Vintage costume jewellery is a statement – and is a great way to express your individual style. It is also great to know that you are unlikely to find two identical, so there is not much chance of someone wearing the same as you.
Early costume jewellery is different to its modern counterparts and although costume jewellery has been mass produced since the early 20s, the earlier back you go, generally, the better the quality and more interesting the materials. You do not find the same robust materials or quality finishes in more modern mass produced items – vintage items were made to last, and with one size fits all – make perfect gifts!
