RetiredSwarovski.com is a web site that is sponsored in part by Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski and other companies that offer Swarovski-related services. While the site is consistently being updated with retirement announcements, the most recent addition to the site includes useful, informative printouts of retired Swarovski figurines.
RetiredSwarovski.com first launched the Swarovski Ornament fact sheets in September 2010. The response from collectors was strong….they wanted these fact sheets for more product lines. New to the site are fact sheet for the following product lines: Swarovski Disney, Swarovski Lovlots, Swarovski Soulmates, and Swarovski Chinese Zodiacs. The facts sheets for these product lines are grouped together for now due to the smaller number of retirements in the products each year. The fact sheets contain miniature photos of the figurines, name, part number, system number, and Swarovski designer, and years in production. In contrast, the Swarovski ornament fact sheets organized by year and for ornaments retiring 1981 through 2009.
RetiredSwarovski.com has a vast amount of information about discontinued Swarovski crystal, and pending Swarovski retirements. The site navigation allows crystal collectors to view Swarovski retirements alphabetically in the Swarovski library, or browse by year in the Swarovski Retirements.
