SWAROVSKI CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY JEWELRY

SWAROVSKI fashioned some of the best and most collectible Holiday brooches ever made, especially their Christmas trees. While it is fun to try to date them, we understand that Swarovski did not always "retire" their jewelry pieces annually, like they usually did with their crystal figurines.  So unless they are marked, some of these dates are estimates or dates of issue only. I think there were over 50 different styles of tree pins made from about 1996-2009.

In the Mary Morrison "Christmas Jewelry" book there is a paragraph on Swarovski that says they  "offered two lines of Christmas jewelry: The Jeweler's Collection... through department stores since about 1980, and the newer Signature Collection... in boutiques since 1994."

Using their high quality crystals and finishes, these pieces also have some of the best enamel work and lovely designs. Swarovski made tree brooches annually for different locations (Nordstrom, Rockefeller Center, etc) as well as for general sale, and some were dated on the back.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
