We are excited to be celebrating 2 years of blogging on the Kristall Buzz. This Swarovski Blog was the first of its kind solely posting Swarovski news, events, and articles for Swarovski collectors. The Kristall Buzz launched on the web in October, 2010.
Today, I took a quick photo of the Swarovski SCS Anniversary Cake for a quick picture posting to @CrystalExchange Instagram to use with our anniversary announcement. Also known as the Swarovski Birthday Cake, this figurine was created to commemorate the 5 year anniversary of the Swarovski Collectors Society in 1992. This Swarovski cake is about 2” tall, and originally retailed for $85. It came in a special white cylinder with its own certificate featuring a picture of the cake on it. (It is not generic product booklet.) At present, the 5th Anniversary Birthday cake sells around $175 on the secondary market.
Shortly after the Instagram post, one of our loyal customers emailed me an edited version of the Instagram photo reflecting our special occasion. This picture of the cake was digitally edited to show 2 lit candles on our cake!
Our appreciation goes out to our readers for the compliments on our Swarovski Blog. And a special thanks for our yummy crystal cake with the pair of burning candles!
