The REAL Story About Swarovski Vienna


Recently, a supposedly purported 'authority' of Swarovski Crystal 'information' posted on her blog a forewarning for the Swarovski White Frosted Soulmates Panther. The gist of the article stated that this item could very well be a forgery.

Anyone who knows anything about Swarovski Crystal is familiar with the Swarovski Vienna store that is a 'stage' for displaying rare issues and prototypes from Swarovski. One of our members traveled to Vienna in December 2010 and supplied us with a plethora of photos from the Vienna 'Eclectic Panther - Moments to Remember' display, that have been posted in our CFC Photo Galleries since then.

A few of those panthers have since been produced for the marketplace by Swarovski on their website this year; namely, the Morada and Orange Shine Soulmate Panthers, originally included in this Collection. The photos carefully document each and every one of 45 Panthers in different various colors. Some of those colors, unfamiliar to Swarovski collectors, include Burgundy, Ceralun, Jasper, & Yellow Shadow, including the so-called 'might be fake/altered' Frosted White Panther.

Posted BY Swarovski in December 2009, with an interview with Marcus Langes-Swarovski, I quote the following: "Constant renewal, change and innovation are the maxims at Swarovski. Various "Eclectic Panthers" serve as an indicator of crystal's immensely variable properties, with the idea of the project to reinterpret a classical, crystalline piece in a variety of ways. As such, 45 of these panther figurines can be found in the heart of Vienna, with various colours, effects and materials, all based on precisely cut crystal."

What further documentation or proof could you want? Anyone can look up this information on the internet.
http://www.brand.swarovski.com/Content.Node/presscentre/news/news-architectureartdesign/OpeningSwarovskiWien.en.html#/en/presscentre/news/news-architectureartdesign/OpeningSwarovskiWien

In the same article, the Poodle with Frosted Tail and the AE Lion with Frosted mane are mentioned. Now these are Fakes! I personally know who did the 'artwork' and made a small fortune selling these 'altered' issues to collectors.

So Who would you believe?
IF you are truly a 'crystal fanatic' as this writer so clearly implies, literally stealing our Tradename, you know better.

Halloween Mo

Created in Red Topaz crystal with Jet crystal highlights, it was a limited one-time production and only available from October 1 until Halloween, 2009.

Belle Mo, issued in 2010, larger than the other Mo's, with body, head and ears in fully faceted Lavender crystal. Horns in Medium Sapphire crystal, bell in White Opal crystal; her eyes are in Jet Hematite crystal, and a flower print is in shades of blue on both sides of the body.

Additionally, there are a few 'prototypes' out there too. One that we know of is Golden MO
and it is an EXTREMELY RARE Prototype - there might be no more than 3 pieces available worldwide and it left
the Swarovski factory in error (in other words, someone took it out the back door). It was Never Issued to the public and it was produced during the 2007/2008 timeframe. One of our very own lucky Crystal Fanatics has this in their collection!
