La Maison Monaco – Jewellery and Watch Trendsetter of Quebec

In 1891, Daniel Swarovski’s vision was to create “a diamond for everyone”. He invented an electric machine that cut more accurately than ever before, marking the beginning of a new era for crystal. From American jazz halls to Parisian couture houses, dresses dripped with beads and Swarovski crystals, reflecting the excitement of the 1920s.

In the 20th century, Swarovski unleashed incredible opportunities for designers of haute couture. The “Aurora Borealis effect”, developed with Christian Dior in the 1950s, gave crystals a mesmerising opalescent finish and the fashion world new creative possibilities. The crystals graced the silver screen in the century’s most iconic films such as “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” On May 19th, 1962, Marilyn Monroe sang to the American President in a flesh-coloured gown covered in Swarovski crystal.
