Yesterday, Swarovski launched their final weekend special for 2011…a limited edition pendant / earring set. Swarovski’s advertises the Etoile Set being limited to 500 sets , which are available through Sunday evening or until they are sold out.
This limited edition is the Swarovski Etoile Set. The set features an asymmetric star on a rhodium-plated chain complete with a pair of matching pierced star earrings. This Swarovski limited edition set costs right at $150 and should include free shipping.
Curious to know how this limited edition got its name, I googled etoileâ for a definition. Not too surprising, the Miriam Webster Dictionary indicated that it is a foreign term meaning in the shape of a star or the principal dancer in a ballet company.
Swarovski also offers the Swarovski Flicker Charm and the stars on the charm to be very similar to the Etoile star.
With only about 24 hours remaining, be sure and get your limited edition Swarovski Etoile Set ordered soon if this looks like the perfect gift for the Swarovski crystal collectors in your friends and family circle.
Hoping that everyone is having an enjoyable pre-Christmas shopping season!
Today, I received an email reminder that my Swarovski Discount Voucher is good for another 10 days yet. Great news for any crystal fanatics who have been procrastinating about shopping and still want to get that someone special a Swarovski crystal figurine.
This voucher is for 10% off (probably a single Swarovski item), with a minimum purchase of $160. Unfortunately, the voucher cannot be used for Swarovski SCS products, binoculars, or the Crystal Myriad sculptures. The Swarovski discount voucher is valid for USA residents, and some other countries. Check your email to see if your country allows the use of the Swarovski coupon.
Swarovski crystal fanatics should scan their inbox for the voucher discount before heading off to do shopping in the online Swarovski shoppe!
Today, Swarovski has posted the second weekend special, promoted as a limited edition pendant. According to the announcement several weeks ago, there should be 500 pendants available through Sunday evening or until they are sold out.
This limited edition is the Swarovski Nadine Pendant. It is a blue tear-drop shaped stone on a silver-colored chain. The Swarovski identification number for the Limited Edition Nadine Pendant is 688961. The Swarovski Nadine Necklace is priced at $100 for the limited edition jewelry feature for the weekend. This weekend special does not have any complimentary earrings, or bracelet like the special for last weekend.
The promotion began November 28 and goes until December 4, 2011 or while supplies last. The promotion is for a set of crystallized photo clips. The Swarovski Photo Clips are a free gift with a qualifying purchase of $150 or more
In the Swarovski Crystalllized Photo Ornament Clip set, there are three clips. The first clip is silver / gray and reads ‘A Moment to Love’ with a crystallized swirl below the saying. The second clip is red and reads ‘A Moment to Cherish’ with a crystallized swirl below the saying. The third clip is red and reads ‘A Moment to Remember’ with a crystallized swirl below the saying. The three crystallized photo clip ornaments are packaged together in a single box, captioned with ‘Moments to Give’.
Below is a brief list of possible Swarovski locations that may have the crystallized photo clips:
Swarovski Photo Clips at Partridge Creek MI
Swarovski Photo Clips at Harbor Place MD
Swarovski Photo Clips at Cherry Creek CO
Swarovski Photo Clips at Atlantic City Boardwalk NJ
Swarovski Photo Clips at Park Place Mall AZ
The photo clips sound interesting…it appears that these Swarovoski Ornaments can be hung in a window by a hook or on a Christmas tree. They would certainly make cute personal gifts from kids to grandparents using school pictures or a special moment with grandparents and grandkids.
I found that there are many Swarovski stores having a promotion on Swarovski crystallized wine sleeves. I am not sure if this includes authorized retailers or if it is strictly boutiques.
What I have learned is that the promotion runs December 5 through December 11, 2011. The set of 3 crystallized wine sleeves will cost $15. The Swarovski wine sleeves are an OPTION to purchase when a customer makes a qualifying purchase of $150 or more.
In the Swarovski Crystalllized Wine Sleeve set, there are three sleeves. Two of the sleeves are red, and the third sleeve is gray (or perhaps white?). All three sleeves are decorated with a crystallized star on the front and close with a deluxe rope.
Quickly, here are a few Swarovski locations running this promotion:
Swarovski Crystalized Wine Sleeves at the Pioneer Place (OR)
Swarovski Crystalized Wine Sleeves at Oak Brook Center (IL)
Swarovski Crystalized Wine Sleeves at Polaris Fashion (OH)
Swarovski is introducing some new techniques they call innovative’Crystal Pixel’ technology. So you may be wondering where to find this new methodology for creating fabulous collectibles? Actually, the Crystal Pixel technology can be found on the newest Swarovski Ornaments!
The newest ornaments that our favorite crystal brand has released are Swarovski Ornaments that are sold as a set of 3 (3 silver stars or 3 gold snowflakes). Heinz Tabertshofer is the Swarovski Designer credited with these 2 new ornament creations. The claim to fame on the Crystal Pixel technology is that with the unique placement of the tiny chatons on both sides of the metal , light can now pass through allowing spectacular lighting effects.
Swarovski Pixel Snowflake Ornament Set – Swarovski system # 1135179 and Swarovski part number 9400 000 366. The ornament set of snowflakes is silver in color and features crystal moonlight chatons. The Swarovski Snowflake Ornament hangs from a white satin ribbon.
Swarovski Pixel Star Ornament Set Swarovski system #1135182 and Swarovski part number 9400 000 367. The ornament set of stars is gold in color and features crystal moonlight chatons. The Swarovski Star Ornament hangs from a gold satin ribbon.
Naturally, the Swarovski Pixel Snowflake Ornament Set and Swarovski Pixel Star Ornament Set are both at the Swarovski shoppe online. Each set of 3 ornaments retails for $75.
These new ornaments sound quite interesting. As they are not solid crystal, like the annual edition ornaments, I’d be far more likely to try hanging these on my Christmas tree I wonder where Swarovski will implement their new Crystal Pixel technology next? (Hearts for Valentines Day?)
Yesterday, Swarovski posted their first weekend (of 3 weekends) special, which is promoted as a limited edition jewelry set. Per Swarovski’s announcement, there are 500 sets available through Sunday evening or until they are sold out.
This limited edition is the Swarovski Eros Set. This jewelry set is a red pave heart on a silver-colored chain complimented with a pair of matching pierced earrings, identified as Swarovski # 1028256. The price is $160 for this Swarovski limited edition set.
Swarovski has been issuing email vouchers.Â I don’t know if this limited edition jewelry is excluded from the discounts that can be obtained using the vouchers, or if it is exempt from them.
If you like the pendant, but don’t have pierced ears, you may be happy to know that the Swarovski Eros Pendant can be purchased separately. The crystal giant also offers the Swarovski Eros Charm which can be attached to a bracelet or chain.
Hoping that all Swarovski crystal collectors had a Happy Thanksgiving!
In 2011, starting on Friday November 25, the crystal brand will offer a Swarovski limited edition jewelry item (they say limited to 500 units) that will be available through the weekend or until sold out. The crystal brand has 3 different jewelry designs that are each offered weekend only. The second weekend event will begin December 2 and the final weekend event will begin December 9.
From the Swarovski crystal image, it appears that one item is a dark blue pendant. Another item may be a red pave heart necklace with earrings. And a final item may be a clear pave star with earrings. There is no mention of price or in what order the jewelry items may be presented.
This is an online event, and the limited edition offerings cannot be purchased anywhere other than the Swarovski online shoppe.
If you are signed up for the Swarovski email newsletter, you should be notified when the specials begin each weekend.
Our favorite brand Swarovski is seems committed to getting our attention on our iPhones (including iPod and iPad) and Android Phones. This is the 2nd App in 2 months that Swarovski has launched to keep us playing their crystal games.
The newest app is the Swarovski Christmas Around the World App. Since it was free in the App store, I decided to ask my daughter to take it for a test-drive. She says the instructions were simple, and the concept is easy to catch on to. Of course, the longer you play, and the higher the score, the more difficult the tasks.
The Swarovski Christmas App for smartphones has a total of 6 color-coded characters, but at the easy levels begins with 2 people to receive gifts. The idea is to give the Swarovski crystal gift to the correct recipient (because recipients and bubbles are color-coded) before the gifts disappear. But there are NON-Swarovski gifts that should NOT be given to the characters, so you have to pay close attention to the gift in the bubbles. As various levels are completed the number of recipients increases and the speeds that the bubbles appear / disappear change, making the levels more difficult. Adding even more complexity, later in the game, some of the bubbles are gray, meaning you have to figure out the correct recipient for the gift during the play.
The Swarovski Christmas App features Christmas trees in a number of cities: Innsbruck, London, Berlin, Zurich, and Madrid. It appears that points must be used to purchase flights to other cities, but my daughter did not expand on how that worked. She stated that high scores can be included for world-wide display, and that this does enter you into drawings for Swarovski prizes. Whew hew! More Swarovski crystal!
In the game, it is possible to view more information about the Swarovski crystal gifts in the bubbles, and add them to a personal wish list, which can then be emailed to your friends and family. We tried this but the links to the Swarovski crystal wishlist products in the recipient”s email did not seem to work on our attempts, so I’m not sure that this feature would be all that useful.
Summary, the game is fun! Great job to Swarovski and the app developers! Also, check out the Swarovski Refract App that launched near October 9, 2011.’ Can”t wait to see future FREE Swarovski Apps!
The Crystal Myriad line produced by Swarovski is a very elite group of sculptures. The Crystal Myriad Dragon Longwang is no exception.
The Swarovski Longwang is now shown on the crystal brand’s web site, as the actual launch must be very soon.Â The company displayed the Swarovski Longwang at the SCS event in California just last week, and in a Swarovski event summary posted to the Kristall Buzz a few days ago, there were actual photos of the sculpture!
Swarovski’s description of the states that ‘Longwang’ means ‘King of the Dragons’. This crystal myriad is certainly king! Longwang is a Swarovski NLE Dragon of 888 units (The number 8 is considered very lucky, so it is likely that this had something to do with the max production.) Longwang contains over 66,0000 hand-set crystals using the Pointiage technique. The polished crystal base of Longwang dragon represents the sea, the dragon’s natural habitat.
The Swarovski system # for Longwang is 1096974. The Swarovski designer is Heinz Tabertshofer. This dragon masterpiece is about 11.5″ wide and 14″ tall. Swarovski indicates that the production time for the Crystal Myriad Longwang is nearly 500 hours!
On the crystal giant’s web site, the Swarovski Longwang used to be found in a video that shows the Crystal Myriad revolving, zooming in on the meticulous craftsmanship of the figurine. Here is a video from Crystal Palace:
Our local retailer stated that pre-payment is required and that the delivery date may be 8 to 12 months away. They originally indicated a price of $26,000, but the Swarovski site shows it at $20,000, so this might be pleasant news for Swarovski crystal fanatics who are considering to purchase it. For me, not a chance .anything over $17,000 must be drivable or inhabitable!
