Colored Crystal in Jewel Tones™
Colored crystal, which dates back to the sixteenth century, has been re-discovered by twenty-first-century trendsetters. We call our colored crystal Jewel Tones™. Color formulas are often closely guarded family secrets handed down from one generation to the next. Our colors are exceptionally luminous and prismatic, and include ruby red, light and dark amethyst, topaz and smoke topaz, olivine, pink, sapphire and black diamond.
The methods of producing hand-cut crystal go back centuries. First the crystal is cut by hand in two stages on an iron and then a sandstone wheel. Then each crystal is hand-polished on a wood wheel with marble dust. You may notice faint traces of the woodwheel, a mark of authenticity. Our crystal makers put aside their first-quality hand-cut crystal for us, and we select the best of the best from this choice inventory. In some cases we ourselves have trained artisans in the ancient craft of cutting and polishing crystal.
