FIORA is Addicted to Crystal and loves
The #brillianceforall Fairytale behind Swarovski 💎 Crystals:
Swarovski crystals are actually man-made gems manufactured in Austria. Today, the #Swarovski Company is a 5th generation family - owned business with over 27,000 employees worldwide. 💕💕💕
But the real #fairytale dates back to 1892 in Bohemia (now the Czech Republic). It was the apprentice, Daniel Swarovski, an ambitious son of a glass-cutter, that had a passion to create a stone that was affordable for all women; not only the elite! After much diligence, he invented and patented a revolutionary electric cutting machine that used hydro-electricity to create his masterpiece; a precision-cut, high quality, lead glass crystal. For over a century, rumors have alluded to a recipe that consists of minerals, quartz, and sand, but the exact proportions of the raw materials remain a company secret...
In 1956, Swarovski’s son, Manfred, collaborated with Christian Dior to develop a new striking “Aurora Borealis” effect which gives a shimmering rainbow sparkle to the #swarovskicrystals💎.
This chilling effect is achieved from a micro-thin layer of vaporized blue metal, which is coated on the crystals’ lower facets. Named after the #NorthernLights, the #AuroraBorealiscrystal is truly a mesmerizing medley of translucent, rainbow-hued, refracted light. 💎💎💎
FIORA also celebrates this unique brilliance as each pair is handcrafted and adorned with hundreds of the “Aurora Borealis” crystals. FIORA’s #luxuryboots are designed to allure, illuminate, and captivate the #wildatheart.
