SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL SOCIETY CELEBRATES 30 YEARS WITH THE PHILIPPINE CRYSTAL COLLECTORS
It is thanks to a small crystal mouse, created in 1976, that tens of thousands of people in over 125 countries now celebrate their love of crystal! Last May 6 2017, the Swarovski Crystal Society celebrated its 30th anniversary in the Philippines at Rustan’s Makati. Many crystal enthusiasts, some who have been members since the very beginning, gathered together to witness the beauty of the special edition pieces.
Every five years the Swarovski Crystal Society (SCS) celebrates an anniversary. For each of these anniversaries, the SCS has launched a special Jubilee Edition commemorating the occasion and 2017 is no exception.
The SCS Jubilee Edition Swans is an exquisite tribute to this noble bird and its offspring, symbolizing a sense of belonging to the Swarovski Family. Swans have always been part of the Crystal Creations assortment, but Swarovski has never created a swan with cygnets for SCS before.
This family scene represents the strong and enduring connection between the mother and her babies. Martin Zendron designed this family to be a symbolic thank you to the loyal crystal lovers, who have been following Swarovski perhaps since the very beginning of SCS, or at least for a long period of time.
The SCS Annual Edition 2017 also pays tribute to the bear mother, a strong and powerful yet caring and protective animal, executed in crystal with 925 facets. The Bear Arcadia sparkles in Sunray, a stunning new crystal color developed to mark the 30th anniversary of the SCS, which reveals a beautiful warmth when the sun shines through it. One paw is engraved with the name Arcadia, the Swarovski logo, the designer Martin Zendron’s initials, and the year of issue 2017. Display this breathtaking piece together with the SCS Bear Cubs to create a delightful family scene.
Members of the Swarovski Crystal Society were able to enjoy the privilege of celebrating with the brand and purchasing the special edition, exclusively available to them. The highlight of the event was the awarding of seven loyal SCS members namely, Eddie Chua, Eleanore Go, Loris Luakian, Shirley Ng, Teresita Rosario, Ronald Uy and Janyka Villacorta.
Become a member of the SCS and choose from either one year or three years membership. After this time, the membership will automatically expire unless otherwise extended. Regardless the length of membership chosen, collectors can look forward to a number of exclusive benefits and advantages only available to SCS members, like complimentary issues of Swarovski Magazine and annual crystal membership gifts.
