On November 17, 2011 Swarovski will light up the Swarovski Crystal Wish Tree at the Toronto Eaton Center (Toronto, Canada). Swarovski has collaborated with the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada since 2005 supporting the organization and contributing generously to help the foundation grant wishes to children and their families across Canada.
This year’s limited edition Swarovski ornament resembles the Swarovski Festive Tree Ornament . For clarity sake, I’m going to describe the Festive Tree Ornament first. The Swarovski Festive Tree Ornament is green (peridot moonlight), decorated with red and yellow ornaments. It is about 1.75″ tall and retails for $40 in the online shoppe. The Swarovski 2011 Make a Wish Ornament is tree-shaped, but is clear in color with no colored ornaments. It has a special inscription with the year 2011 underneath. While I have not heard the 2011 maximum quantity of production, in years past, 1100 to 1200 of the Swarovski Wish Ornaments have been produced.
The Kristall Buzz has pictures of some of the past limited edition Wish Ornaments in the article entitled Swarovski Crystal Wish Tree Ornament available in Canada. There were 1200 limited edition ornaments produced in 2010, which resembled Samantha the Snowflake. There were 1100 limited edition ornaments produced in 2009, which resembled the Swarovski Little Snowflake Ornament (retired in 2008). There were 1200 limited edition ornaments produced in 2007, which resembled the Swarovski Twinkling Stars Ornament (retired in 2007).
Honored wishes and additional information can be found at the organization’s web site: Children’s Wish Foundation.
I’ll post more details about the Toronto Eaton Center Tree lighting and Children’s Wish Ornament following the event in a couple of days. I’m looking forward to seeing the Swarovski Limited Edition Ornament soon!
