About Us

Barone Crystal was founded in the Emerald City of Seattle, WA in 1968. Michele (Gino) Barone founded his business by hand engraving each order. Gino was born in Piana de Albanesi, Sicily and took many years to apprentice hand cutting crystal in Argentina.
All of his engraving was done by holding the piece up to a revolving stone and making each cut individually. In doing so all work was done upside down and backwards! Over the years his techniques and machinery have evolved. While some of our pieces are still hand cut, most are done with intricate machinery.
Gino is now semi-retired, though the family business lives on as his children have now run the business.
This new generation of engraving captures the artistic integrity of the hand cutting while coming up with new and inventive ways to produce artwork! 
We take great pride in our work and hope you are as happy with the results as we are are making it for you!
