The final Swarovski SCS crystal figurine in the “Caring and Sharing” series was the Swarovski ‘Amour’ Turtledoves.    The Turtledoves figurine was a lovely cherished collectible illustrating the companionship between the two birds.  The Swarovski Turtledoves Box, or in this case, the Swarovski cylinder, is key to securely house the crystal figurine while it is not being displayed.

1989 Swarovski SCS Turtledoves Box

The Amour Turtledoves container measures about 7 5/8” in height and 7 ¼” in diameter.  The Swarovski Turtledoves cylinder is mostly white in color, with silver-gray end caps.  On the Turtledoves cylinder box, collectors can see ‘Annual Edition 1989 “Amour” – the Turtledoves’ in English and in 5 other languages in the grayish stripe on the cylinder. The Swarovski – assigned reference number can be found near the bottom edge in very small letters.  The Swarovski Turtledoves Box reference number is DO3MM882. The Turtledoves Box can also be found using another reference # DO1X891B, which was firstly found in the Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski Catalogue.

The foam was specially formed to securely transport and store the treasured SCS crystal figurine with its certificate.  The Turtledoves foam contains a special slit for holding certificate.

A special thanks to Swarovski expert Jane Warner, co-author to Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski for consulting on the Swarovski Dolphins Box article.

Regarding availability and replacement value, the Swarovski Turtledoves Box is not easily found at this point in time.  The last one that sold was over 5 years ago, and those prices are too out of date to even mention.  However, Crystal Exchange America does have listing for the box and certificate set that can be purchased for $375 if there is a true need for original packaging and documentation.
