Far-reaching developments are afoot at Swarovski, with the announcement of a dramatic change to the DNA of its crystal. Since September 2012, the entire Swarovski assortment has switched to the new ADVANCED CRYSTAL standard. This new, innovative lead-free* crystal composition complies with current laws and regulations governing the use of certain substances in finished products in the most relevant segments of our customer’s business. It has been patented by Swarovski in the US, Japan, and 16 European countries.
* Crystal glass and all other materials containing 0.009% lead or less.
