RetiredSwarovski.com is a web site that is maintained by Crystal Exchange America, along with several other companies that offer Swarovski-related services. Most recently, the site was expanded to include more Swarovski product lines in addition to the Silver Crystal line. The site now includes Swarovski Lovlots, Swarovski Disney Collection, Swarovski Crystal Moments, Swarovski Paradise, Swarovski Soulmates, and Swarovski Home and Interior. This fantastic new content that is certain to be of interest to many Swarovski crystal collectors.
The Swarovski Crystal Moments product line has separate pages for each year of retirement from 1991 to 2009. The Swarovski Home and Interior product line has separate pages for each year of retirement from 1995 to 2009. The Swarovski Paradise product line has separate pages for each year of retirement from 2002 to 2009. Due to the small number of retirements, the Swarovski Disney collection product line has a single page showing all retirements from 2008 to 2010. The year of introduction and year of retirement are listed with each item on the page. As the Swarovski Lovlots product line also has a small number of retirements, they too are on a single page showing all retirements from 2006 to 2010. The year of introduction and year of retirement are listed with each item on the page. Lastly, Swarovski Soulmates are on a single page showing all retirements from 2009 to 2010 with the year of introduction and year of retirement are listed with each item on a single page.
RetiredSwarovski.com has a wealth of information about discontinued Swarovski figurines, and pending Swarovski retirements. The site navigation allows crystal collectors to find Swarovski Silver Crystal retirements alphabetically in their Swarovski Library, or browse by year in the Swarovski Retirements. Additionally, there are also pages for the various Swarovski product lines that feature a crystal listing for items that are “retiring soon”. The “retiring soon” pages are frequently updated as the company Swarovski announces which figurines that will soon be discontinued.
RetiredSwarovski.com also has a page on the site for hints on cleaning Swarovski. Here, crystal collectors can get suggestions for task considerations, a supply list, a thorough cleaning overview, and explore recovery possibilities if crystal might become damaged at some point during the cleaning process.
