For 46 years, the region of Bohemia- encompassing what is now the Czech Republic- has passed down the traditional craft of glassmaking from generation to generation. The unmatched artistry and craftsmanship from this region has been celebrated the world over for centuries.
Preciosa was established in 1948 when many of the region’s best joined under one name. Since then, the company has seamlessly blended its rich history with modern methods and the most advanced technology. The name Preciosa is renowned as a statement of crystal quality and innovation.
Preciosa® has created a brilliant crystal collection that our customers love, with the second-largest selection of colors, shapes and sizes.
In 2009, they set new limits for machine stone cutting when creating a record-breaking miniature stone- at .05mm diameter- with an incredible 33 facets. In 2013, Preciosa introduced the lead-free MAXIMA crystal, a radical new recipe that eliminated the key ingredient previously thought to be the definitive element for truly premium crystal. This unique material, with its extraordinary sparkle, meets the highest international standards of quality and environmental certification.
ADVANCING THE TRADITION
Today, Preciosa continues to be an influence in its community, supporting scientific research, development, and professional training in its craft, hosting annual challenges for design students and giving back to people and organizations with the establishment of The Preciosa Foundation.
