Jewellery brand Swarovski UK has received a royal warrant as a manufacturer and supplier of crystals by her Majesty The Queen.
The “prestigious” warrant was granted to Nadja Swarovski, on behalf of Swarovski, in recognition of the company’s commitment to the highest standards of service, quality and excellence.
According to the group, royal warrants are a mark of recognition issued to select companies and tradespeople that supply goods or services to the British Royal Family.
Swarovski recently launched its inaugural Conscious Design programme in collaboration with Central Saint Martins, UAL. Swarovski’s Conscious Design initiative is focused on how the company can “inspire others to spark positive change in the world” by motivating the next generation of designers to create their products and collections responsibly, and by integrating sustainability into the creative learning projects supported by the brand.
The new programme will form part of the curriculum at Central Saint Martins, UAL for students on three courses: MA Material Futures, BA Jewellery Design, and BA Textile Design.
Nadja Swarovski, Swarovski executive board, said at the time: “We are delighted to reaffirm our longstanding commitments to sustainability and to the outstanding creative education provided by Central Saint Martins with our new Conscious Design program and the Swarovski Foundation’s expanded support for student scholarships.
“The hugely dedicated and talented students and faculty at Central Saint Martins/the College (either here) are creating much needed positive change in the fashion industry and beyond. As a company with a 125-year heritage of innovation, creative collaboration and responsible business it is a true pleasure to support them on their journey.”
