The Kristall Buzz has featured previous articles about the gorgeous Swarovski Panther cats:
So what are the differences between the Swarovski Online Limited Edition Panthers? As much as I know at this time, the colors are different and the production quantity is different. Swarovski Black Panther – Limited to 500 units. Swarovski Orange Shine Panther – Limited to 888 units. I have not heard any news about the price. The retail price on all the colors released to date has been just under $1000 each.
The Limited Edition Black Panther is performing well on the secondary market, with trading prices in the $3000 to $3500 range. If this is any indication of success for the Limited Edition Orange Shine Panther, you’ll want to save the date of August 29, 2011 to try and purchase this newest one, so that you won’t have to pay secondary market prices to add it to your Swarovski crystal collection.
