Their e-commerce site opened in 1996 and Google opened their site in 1997, Bruno tells us. “The company was founded many years ago, as an exclusive fine crystal retailer, and while we had our stores and catalogue, we opened an e-commerce web site in 1996, one year before even Google was online. “Few luxury stores have been around that long online and we are proud of it. Most of the luxury gift industry followed our lead only a decade later. Today, as then, Crystal Classics remains a leader in service, technology, imaging and luxury of the fine crystal retail. “The company’s esteemed catalogues have been around since 1976. We publish several catalogues a year, with our Christmas Edition always being a customer favourite. Our catalogues are high gloss, coffee table style books filled with finest luxurious gifts and crystal pieces. All the photography on our website and catalogues, is produced in-house, so we are proud to be one of the few retail companies that uses bespoke luxury photography instead of stock photos.” Bruno then reveals more about the company’s bespoke luxury photography, his views on celebrities and privacy as well as gift and presentation services. “Luxurious fine crystal deserves fine presentation. All images are produced in Crystal Classics in house and are original works of art by our photographers. At Crystal Classics, we believe that the fine crystal is an object of great beauty that should be respected. We produce bespoke luxury art photography of fine crystal art pieces. Respect the beautiful in your life. “At Crystal Classics, we have sent gifts for and to every living U.S. President, many popular celebrities, movie stars, sports stars and many other well-known celebrities and public figures.
