Baccarat Crystal is Fine French Quality

A Brief History of Baccarat
It all began in the late 1700's when King Louis XV of France authorized a new glassworks to begin in the town of Baccarat. The company was started by Prince Bishop Cardinal Louis-Joseph de Laval-Montmorency and early production was made up of mainly window panes, mirrors and stemware. Later, in 1816, the first crystal oven went into operation. At this point the company employed over 3000 workers, which is a large company even by today's standards. The first Royal Commission was granted to Baccarat in 1823 and thus began a long career of making fine crystal for royalty.
The Baccarat Style
If you were to describe the Baccarat style in one word it would be elegant. After all, it is suitable for royalty so it is no surprise that it adds an elegant and rich touch to any room—or person for that matter since Baccarat extended their line to include jewelry in 1993. Each piece in the Baccarat collection is unique, elegant and exceptional from vases, stemware and other home décor items to magnificent chandeliers and graceful lamps. Earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets all sparkle with magnificent style when created by Baccarat Crystal. They also create other fabulous accessories like fur purses with crystal accents.
Adding the Royal Touch to Your Life
Every life and every home can use just a bit of the royal touch. Adding elegant home accessories such as beautiful crystal decanters, lamps, vases and so on, can make your home feel like a palace. Wearing gorgeous Baccarat jewelry can make you feel like a king or queen.
