The Swarovski 2011 Ornament is celebrating 20 years of the Swarovski Annual Edition Ornaments. The 2011 crystal ornament is now available in the USA at select retailers and will be available on the Swarovski web site in mid-July.
The 2011 Swarovski Ornament is clear crystal, with a silver-colored metal tag inscribed with 2011, hanging from a white satin ribbon. The ornament is offered by itself, or in a set with 2 smaller star ornaments.
The crystal brand has been producing Swarovski Ornaments since 1991. Beginning in the 1990’s, there was a pattern of Swarovski Star Ornaments and Swarovski Snowflake Ornaments. The odd years were deemed to be stars, while the even years were deemed to be snowflakes. 1999 through 2002, the ornament designs became more abstract, and until 2003, were not labeled as a ‘Swarovski Star’ or ‘Swarovski Snowflake’ ornament. In 2003, the pattern continued with odd years being stars and even years being snowflakes.
It is interesting to note the ribbon color for the 2011 .it is white. Since 1993, the ribbon color has been navy blue.
If you are starting your crystal figurine ornament collection this year, you may want to consider adding some of the retired ornaments to your collection too. Crystal Exchange America has many years available of the Swarovski Ornaments on their web site. They can be found in the ‘Christmas and Ornaments’ category of the store!
