Swarovski created a tradition with this Collection by issuing a Christmas Snowflake or Star Ornament each year (starting in 1991) in a strictly Limited Edition. All odd numbered years are stars.(1991, 1993, 1995, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011 & 2013). All even numbered years are snowflakes. (1992, 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 & 2014).
Originally the ornaments were packed in single boxes but Swarovski began double boxed packaging in 1997. Daniel Swarovski, a Bohemian, created the company in the late 19th century, after inventing an automatic cutting machine. He chose Wattens for his factory as there was a hydroelectric plant nearby which could supply sufficient energy for the grinding process.Swarovski crystal contains approximately 32% lead to maximize refraction. The distinctive Swan Logo represents unparallel quality. It replaced the original edelweiss flower in 1988. Sculptures, figurines, stars, & snowflakes are etched with this swan.
