[Swarovski response to Observer article entitled "The Price of Sparkle is Child Labor"

A recent article published in the London Observer/Guardian titled “The Price of Sparkle is Child Labor” incorrectly implicated Swarovski in the illegal practice of child labor, an accusation which is not only totally untrue; it also goes against every social standard that this family company has stood for in its 111 years of history...Although Swarovski does everything in its power to prevent any kind of exploitation through the network of its own clients, it would be virtually impossible to be able to control the use of small jewelry stones and beads right down to the final end user.
