Preciosa was founded in 1948, after WWII. It was in fact a merger from different glass cutting companies in the city of Jablonec nad Nisou, who decided that after the downfall, due to WWII, it would be best to join their efforts. 

After the collapse of the iron curtain in 1990, it went quickly upwards with Preciosa’s business.



Preciosa has become a world leader (No. 2) in the manufacturing of fine cut crystal, specialized in the production of machine cut chatons, beads, lamp pendants and a variety of fashion jewelery components of top quality and in a broad variety of shapes, colors and sizes.

Preciosa Gifts & Jewelery
In 1995 Preciosa started with the production of crystal figurines. When this department started to diversify to jewelery, trophies and general crystal decorations, the name was changed in Preciosa Gifts & Jewelery. 

The cut crystal figurines are not the biggest product of Preciosa but they are very cute and show that design is something else than just sticking some crystal stones together. Although in the beginning they used a glass type called LiBa-crystal (a glass composition with Lithium and Barium with a good brilliance) they now use a high-end lead crystal for their figurines.

The Jewelery of Preciosa is very nice and stylish and ranges from classic designs to modern designs, made out of cut crystal or cubic zirconia.
