Astonishing The World With Czechia’s Unique Jewellery

Czechia is one of the global jewellery manufacturing leaders with the total exports of jewellery products amounting to 1 billion EUR annually. Czechia has an abundant tradition in glass jewellery making, today primarily done by Preciosa Group in state-of-the-art factories. However Czech garnet and gold jewellery are also of high significance and as such sold all over the world.

Czech glass jewellery production

The production technique of glass jewellery has developed over the time from the manufacturing process taking place at glassmaker´s home, where glass beads were manually cut using knives, hand polished one bead at a time and thereafter strung, to the high-tech industry involving cutting edge technology.

One of the world’s leading producers of cut crystal, machine cut chatons, beads and other fashionable jewellery is renowned Czech company Preciosa Group (www.preciosa.com), nowadays making  its jewellery in highly automated factories.

It focuses 99 % of its production on foreign markets, especially Asia, the Middle East and Brazil. Impressive 3,5 million kg of beads are exported by Preciosa every year. There are four Preciosa’s brands operating under Preciosa Group: Preciosa Crystal Components, Preciosa Cubic Zirconia & Gems, Preciosa Ornela and Preciosa Traditional Czech Beads.
