Swarovski, a world leader in Swarovski Crystal figurines, jewelry, and fashion, will release a men’s collection in the spring or summer next year.  This new men’s collection will consist of rings, bracelets and chains with a focus on steel and black Swarovski gemstones.  This is fantastic news for the male crystal fanatics who have traditionally been excluded from Swarovski’s jewelry line.  Swarovski cites that the men’s collection will be “secretive, mysterious, and metallic.”

The world renowned crystal company mentions names of the five new Swarovski men’s jewelry collection lines: Nano, Newton, Nevada, Nightfall, New England, and Mooncarbon.  Each line focuses on different personalities and embellishing on different elements of a men’s accessory line.

Good luck Swarovski…hoping this is a true hit.  Perhaps in the future we’ll see a line designed for teen girls in terms of appeal and price!

Swarovski’s weekend special is the Swarovski Limited Edition Flower Heart Pendant.  As per advertising several weeks ago, it should have had a maximum production of 500 units. This pendant featured a silver colored chain and setting.  Four heart-shaped light amethyst crystals were set in a floral design. (The Swarovski system number is 183011.)
Swarovski has been doing weekend events since mid-November selling limited edition jewelry.  I noticed that the past two events ended on Sunday evenings as advertised, and it appeared that the limited edition issues were still available for purchase.
Today (Sunday) when I checked the Swarovski Limited Edition Flower Pendant, it appeared that the item has sold out!  All 500 necklace pendants gone!
Swarovski crystal fanatics should be on the lookout for the final limited edition online exclusive to become available December 10: the Swarovski Limited Edition Heart Parcel Pendant .  Be sure to share the link with that special someone if this Swarovski Limited Edition is on your wish list.

Swarovski is now its second round of online weekend events.  This weekend’s Swarovski Limited Edition feature is the Laser Pendant and Earring set. Just as the first weekend, this feature set is limited to a quantity of 500. The Swarovski Laser set is available online beginning Friday November 26 and ends when stocks are depleted or in the evening of Sunday November 30, whichever comes first.

Based on the images and information found at the Swarovski web site, I believe that the necklace and earrings are made of a silver-tone metal and each contains a single clear Swarovski stone. While not stated in the product description, the earrings are for pierced ears.  I don’t know if it is possible to purchase this Swarovski Limited Edition with clip style earrings from Swarovski’s standard product line or not.

This beautiful Swarovski Limited Edition Laser Pendant and Earring Set has a price tag of $100. The Swarovski System Number is 1083010.  Standard shipping is free to USA residents (since the price exceeds the minimum order of $95 to obtain free shipping).

Crystal Exchange America does have a selection of retired Swarovski necklaces, Swarovski earrings, Swarovski bracelets, Swarovski pins, and Swarovski brooches. Swarovski jewelry has a much slower turnover since it is not ‘collected’ like Swarovski figurines.

Swarovski has begun a series of online weekend events running for four weekends.  Today is the last day of the first weekend Swarovski event.  The online limited edition is the ‘Mozart Limited Edition Pendant’.  This necklace is a gold tone heart-shaped cutout handing on a gold-plated chain.  The heart is embellished with Swarovski Golden Shadow crystals.

Based on the original advertisements, the quantity was supposed to be a limited edition of 500 units which are only available in the Swarovski site.  When I visited the Swarovski store page for the necklace, I was still able to add the item to my Swarovski cart, so I concluded that these Swarovski Limited Editions has not yet sold out.  This is good news for all Swarovski collectors who wish to purchase, but have not yet done so.

If anyone misses the opportunity to purchase, either because the Swarovski Mozart Limited Edition Pendant becomes sold out, or the deadline is missed, Swarovski does make a very similar pendant.  The pendant design is identical, the differences are that the standard Swarovski Mozart Pendant is silver-tone in color and has clear crystals inset.

Crystal Exchange America does have a selection of retired Swarovski pendant, Swarovski necklaces, Swarovski bracelets, Swarovski brooches, and Swarovski pins.  As Swarovski jewelry is not ‘collected’ like figurines are, these items have a much slower turnover.
