The Swarovski Lovebirds crystal figurine included a special Lovebirds Togetherness Certificate and custom Swarovski Togetherness Box. The crystal giant only offered the SCS membership to five English-speaking countries when it came about in 1987. For this reason, it was not necessary to have a multi-lingual Swarovski certificate for the Swarovski Lovebirds.
However, at Crystal Exchange America, we have seen a variety of authentic Swarovski COA documents for the Swarovski Lovebirds:
- Swarovski Lovebirds Certificate – English only (lower certificate)
- Swarovski Lovebirds Certificate – English and French (upper certificate)
Both variations of the Swarovski Lovebirds COA is identical on the front, and includes the same picture of the crystal figurine on the inside. The only difference is whether or not there is the authenticity information in French on the left side of the interior of the Togetherness COA.
The Swarovski-assigned part numbers can be found on the back side in a very small font. The Swarovski Lovebirds English certificate is DO4E861. The Swarovski Lovebirds English and French certificate is DO4E86. The Lovebirds Certificate can also be found using another reference # DO1X861C, which was originally used in the Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski Price Guide.
The Swarovski Lovebirds COA was originally in a square white envelope when it was packaged with the crystal figurine. However, we do not commonly see the envelope when there is a sales transaction pending on the Swarovski Lovebirds. This original envelope is tissue-lined, and bears the Swarovski Collectors Society logo on the front side.
It is important to remember that the Swarovski Lovebirds does have a COA that is specific to this figurine. Less knowledgeable collectors have posted online auctions selling their figurine to include the original box and certificate, yet posted a picture of the Lovebirds with a generic product booklet instead.
A special thanks to Jane Warner, co-author to Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski for consulting on the Swarovski Lovebirds Certificate article.
Regarding availability and replacement value, the SCS Swarovski Lovebirds Certificate is on the more-difficult side to find. I was able to locate on ebay for $139 with free shipping. It is the English only certificate with the envelope. At Crystal Exchange America, the only listing for the Swarovski Lovebirds Certificate does not specify language is priced over $300 with their commission.
