Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski has published Swarovski Books on Crystal for sixteen years. No one else in the world has launched a site with the all-inclusive data that the company has compiled for the last one and a half decades. Keeping their printed books and online subscription service current takes a lot of time and commitment to do this each year. The authors, Tom and Jane Warner, are Swarovski collectors and they know how important these books are to keeping a Swarovski collection organized and insured!
This Swarovski Online Book contains over 2800 Swarovski items in its database. Summarizing this site’s functionality, Swarovski collectors may purchase a subscription to the web site that will allow them access to a vast amount of information about many Swarovski releases. Being an active subscriber, a Swarovski collector will be able to view color images of the Swarovski Crystal items, find out the designer, dimensions, year Introduced, year retired, MSR (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) and Swarovski ERV (Estimated Replacement Value for insurance purposes). There is also a short paragraph of information containing the theme group, history, or interesting facts for the crystal items.
Warner's Blue Ribbon Book on Swarovski Online covers all the lines produced by the company Swarovski. These product lines include: Silver Crystal, Crystal Moments, Home & Interior, Daniel Swarovski Home Accessories, Daniel Swarovski Masterpiece, Julia's World, Perfumes, Paperweights, Trimlite, Crystal Signatures, Christmas Memories, Crystal Scents, CrystalograMs, Buddha, Arribas Creations, Crystal Paradise & more! The online book also includes the Swarovski Crystal Society issues, beginning with the Lovebirds in 1997, and the most current release for 2009, the Gorillas.
The ERV is commonly referred to as the Swarovski Value by many collectors, but an important note this is NOT a buying or selling price, but rather a value recommended for insurance purposes. Collectors looking to expand their collection have an advantage of no time limit and may be able to find an item at a lower, attractive price. An insurance claim deserves to be processed within time constraints.
The Warner’s continue to publish their printed books in both color and black-and-white image formats. The Silver Crystal Price Guide contains photos and detailed information about SCS products and Silver Crystal product releases (as well as product variations on those releases) for the past 33 years so it covers 1200+ Swarovski Crystal items.
Their Beyond Silver Crystal Swarovski Price Guide contains information on over 1600 Swarovski Crystal and products. The contents of this book are all Swarovski items that are not Swarovski Crystal Society releases or part of the Swarovski Silver Crystal product line.
Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski can be found by visiting their website which has been online for over 15 years. The Swarovski subscription service, http://www.wbrbonline.com has been online for the past 8 years. Swarovski collectors and readers come back each year to stay on top of their Swarovski collection value and management.
For the passionate collector looking for more than Swarovski Books, they can also provide recommendations to reputable brokers like Crystal Exchange America. Crystal Exchange America presently has over 5000 products in their online store, most of which is retired Swarovski. The Warner’s also know many collectors who like Star Track Software, a pc program built from MS Access to inventory a collection and print reports, which is based on their successful books.
Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski is not affiliated with, endorsed, or sponsored by Swarovski. They simply research and report information that they believe is a valuable asset to Swarovski collectors.
