With only 2000 available in 2011, the Steiff Sapphire Bear not going to be available for very long. Steiff retailers told us that the limited edition Swarovski-decorated bear was quick to sell out this year.
The bear’s coat is a deep blue made of silk material. The bear has paws encrusted with Swarovski crystal Elements stones that reflect a prism of colors accenting the sapphire blue color.
Sapphire also wears a choker around her neck made Swarovski Elements. Naturally, the bear includes a white label with the famous Steiff button in the ear. Every Steiff Sapphire bear includes a numbered certificate of authenticity and is packaged in a special Steiff gift box.
A number of other Steiff Swarovski bears have been produced in the past decade. In particular, Swarovski Ornaments were used in the implementation of these Swarovski Steiff bears:
- Steiff Swarovski Daniel Bear 2004
