It is no secret that Swarovski jewellery has for years been adored by many celebrities, from the likes of Michael Jackson, Audrey Hepburn, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss or Taylor Swift the list goes on and on.

However, what is probably the most iconic and glamorous displays of Swarovski Jewellery was when, in 1953, Swarovski jewellery decorated the most iconic blonde bombshell of her time, the one and only Marilyn Monroe in the movie "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"

All those gorgeous brilliant sparkles that she flashed during her song "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" 

They were actually in fact, Swarovski crystals.

Remembered as an icon of elegance and beauty unmatched in her generation, Marilyn Monroe was enchanting in Swarovski crystals on many occasions.

She is also remembered in the annals of history as wearing a gown covered in Swarovski crystals as she sang, “Happy Birthday Mr President,” on live television to U.S. President John F. Kennedy. That famous gown was covered in 2,500 Swarovski crystals.

When under the spotlight, the dress beneath the crystals seemed to disappear and left Ms. Monroe sparkling in the spotlight.    

Contrary to the name of the song "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" all those glistening pieces of jewellery were all made of Swarovski Crystals.

Swarovski crystals have an international appeal steeped in rich history and innovation.

In a small town high in the Austrian Alps, Daniel Swarovski wanted everyone to have a diamond.

He felt that diamonds should be accessible to anyone who wanted one.

In 1892, he patented an electric machine that cut crystals with such precision it revolutionised the jewellery industry.

With the preciseness of the cutting methods, Swarovski created the most stunning crystals in the world.
