Each piece of Touchstone Crystal jewelry is uniquely designed with first quality Swarovski crystals and innovations and is sold exclusively through our Independent Sales Consultants.
The key ingredient: Swarovski Crystal
In every Touchstone crystal accessory shines Swarovski crystal, giving each chic jewelry piece its signature sparkle.
Beauty, as the saying goes, is in the eye of the beholder. Above and beyond subjective perception, the quality and value of crystal can be determined by the criteria outlined below in the 5 C’s of Swarovski Crystal.
5 C's of Swarovski Crystal
The brilliance of the crystal is determined by the cut – the greater the precision, the more exact the faceting, the more prismatic the effect of the crystal and the greater the brilliance in the crystal’s refraction.
The clearer the crystal is from inclusions such as cloudy spots, streaks and bubbles, the more flawless the crystal clarity and the more brilliant the properties.
Perfect crystals are characterized by intensity and fidelity to tone, independent of size and cut. When reflecting light, a crystal with great color gives rise to a fiery play of tones which reveal its hidden spectrum.
Meticulous quality control in Swarovski’s manufacturing process ensures perfectly shaped, flawlessly faceted crystals.
From the sustainable and conscious handling of business to the environmental practices in selecting and composing of crystal ingredients, care is in every part of Swarovski’s crystal making process.

Innovation & Design
Straight from our trend experts in Paris & Milan, you’ll find Swarovski’s most innovative and cutting-edge stones, colors and techniques in all of our collections. From Crystal Rocks to Crystal Fabric to Pointiage, many of our jewels feature breakthrough techniques and approaches exclusive to Swarovski.
Quality & Craftsmanship
Our jewels are made completely by hand. Each stone is hand set-including every tiny pavé crystal, and most surfaces are hand polished.
All other collections are made from a brass or white metal base that is plated in rhodium, palladium, gold, or antiqued silver or bronze. Rhodium is a highly prized precious metal; palladium is part of the platinum family of metals and we plate with 18-karat gold or higher. Touchstone Crystal jewelry contains no nickel, lead or cadmium.
Our Quality testing matches that done for Swarovski, and is supported by Swarovski teams around the world. Testing is conducted for corrosion, perspiration, ‘pulling’ and more; inspection is conducted after manufacturing and when items arrive at our facilities for packaging and shipping.
