XERO

The world`s smallest precision-cut crystal

Uncompromisingly perfect - all on a microscopic scale

Swarovski has revolutionized crystal once again, achieving what until now seemed impossible by creating the XERO chaton – the first faceted precision-cut crystal in size PP 0.

By offering this all-time design essential in the unbelievably small sizes PP 0 and PP 1, weighing under 0.3 mg per piece with a diameter of 0.7–0.8 mm and 0.8–0.9 mm respectively, Swarovski has opened up a new design universe. 

The XERO chatons are made using ADVANCED CRYSTAL technology, and comply with the highest quality standards set by Swarovski.

With a small size comes great artistic potential that particularly suits the creative needs of the watch, eyewear and jewelry industry, and new applications.  

The XERO chaton can be used as: 

  • an airy, lightweight sparkling accent to fill even miniscule areas
  • micro-pavé in an all-over crystal encrustation for stunning shimmering effects
  • a cool eye-catcher arranged in the form of icons, pictures, wordings or logos
  • an element in optical effects with 3D appeal, particularly in combination with other chaton sizes

Not only is Swarovski introducing the product for a new design generation, the innovation leader is also introducing the necessary tools for its industrial processing:  

Small chaton sizes are now also available in a wide color range with guaranteed color consistency throughout the assortment. New packaging with micro-chambers allows for easier handling and reduction of manipulation leakage. The lower viscosity of the new CG 610-240 glue makes it easier to apply the smallest chaton sizes, while the tiny cavities of the new Chaton Sieve places them in the correct application position.
