As now a part of this Swarovski history, Chamilia strives to remain true to Daniel Swarovski’s vision of a responsible company that not only has its employees’ well being at heart but also that of the environment and society as a whole. For generations, we have recognised that the long term success of the company is inseparable from the well being of our stakeholders.
