In 2013, Preciosa created a brand new type of crystal – lead-free crystal – The MAXIMA. This unique material, with its extraordinary sparkle, meets the highest international standards of quality and environmental certification.
Maxima is showcased in the MC Chaton. They are also known as the pointy back crystals and used extensively in jewellery design. its incredible brilliance is created by light passing through 15 pristinely cut facets. Its optical-aesthetic properties are second to none in the magically glittering world of glass.
Preciosa production of all products including flatback crystals, bicone beads and chandelier components are regulary tested by accredited laboratories. This is to ensure the products compliance with all major crystal standards and legislation.
Crystal Parade, as a company, is working hard to reduce our carbon foot print by reducing the amount of paper we use. We are aiming towards paperless communication where possible and we purchase stationery made from recyclable materials. Our goal is to limit the amount of times we order from our suppliers and recycle our waste. We also reuse packaging where possible.
Preciosa has acknowledged our ongoing efforts by honoring Crystal Parade with Authorised Silver Partner status. We are the proud recipients of this award and we thank Preciosa for their continued efforts in social responsibility.
