RetiredSwarovski.com is a web site that is maintained by Crystal Exchange America, along with several other companies that offer Swarovski-related services. While the site is consistently being updated with retirement announcements, the most recent embellishments to the site include functional, informative printouts of retired Swarovski ornaments.
There are Swarovski ornament fact sheets for many years, dating back to 1981, and are available for retired ornaments through 2009. The fact sheets contain miniature photos of the ornaments, name, part number, system number, and Swarovski designer.
RetiredSwarovski.com has a wealth 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. Additionally, there is also a section on the site for Swarovski crystal that is “retiring soon” and it is frequently updated as the company Swarovski announces Silver Crystal figurines that will soon be discontinued.
In addition to the Swarovski Silver Crystal product line, RetiredSwarovski.com also includes retirement information for Swarovski Crystal Moments, Swarovski Lovlots, Swarovski Disney, Swarovski Home & Interior, Swarovski Paradise, and Swarovski Soulmates. All this incredible content that is certain to be of interest to Swarovski crystal fanatics.
RetiredSwarovski.com has an updated section on the site for hints on cleaning Swarovski. Here, crystal collectors can get suggestions for task considerations, a potential supply list, a thorough cleaning overview, and explore recovery possibilities if crystal becomes damaged during the cleaning process. Collectors are enamored with the crystal sparkle, so cleaning the figurines displaying them in dust-free cabinets will keep that shine year round.
Since the site sponsors have personal interest in Swarovski, the Retired Swarovski site contains information about the sponsors’ products and services. For Swarovski crystal owners looking to buy or sell Swarovski, collectors can learn more about Crystal Exchange America. Crystal Exchange America has over 14 years of experience and assists collectors adding crystal to their Swarovski collection as well as helping those who want to liquidate Swarovski crystal collections or sell only a part of them. Crystal Exchange America, a retired Swarovski dealer, specializes in discontinued and retired Swarovski crystal.
Swarovski collectors can also learn more about the Swarovski catalogs offered by Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski. The Swarovski catalogues can be purchased with color photos, black and white photos, or via an online subscription service. If a collector is trying to establish the Swarovski value of a collection for insurance purposes, these catalogs are essential. Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books has an extremely reliable record of annually publishing their books for the past 18 years. They can be found at http://www.wbrb.com . For a minimal fee, http://www.wbrbonline.com offers an annual subscription service that allows subscribers to run queries on Swarovski crystal items, using the name, part number, or system number, to retrieve beneficial facts on the crystal figurines, including designer, dimensions, and Swarovski values (suggested insurance value), photos, and more.
Unfortunately, at some unexpected moment, many Swarovski aficionados will need information on Swarovski restoration or repair. At present, Swarovski’s repair policy is such that they do repair crystal in their current product offerings. In contrast, if the crystal figurine is discontinued / retired, the company does not repair those items. RetiredSwarovski.com contains information about repair and restoration, and a company that specializes in restoring retired Swarovski…..The Crystal Wizard. These Swarovski restoration experts can be found at http://www.tcwizard.com .
