This item is Unopened "New Old Stock"... it is part of the large lot of Vintage European Glass/Crystal Jewelry that we discovered last year. These are not new crystals, but most are about 20-40 years old and have been stored in the original packaging all of these years!
These items are not individually packaged... all of my Swarovski was shipped in Original Swarovski boxes in Original Swarovski trays (see pics)... your item will arrive in a small plastic bag.
I get a lot of questions about the Swarovski logo... it is important to remember that these pieces are vintage... the following is directly from the Swarovski website:
AUTHENTICITY AND LOGOS
Since 1989, all genuine Swarovski products feature the Swarovski Swan logo. Pieces produced prior to this date have a different logo and in some cases, it may only be faintly visible or almost impossible to detect.
You will find the following logos on almost all Swarovski crystal and jewelry products:
Square Silver Crystal SC logo (1976 - 1988)
sCs/SCS logo (Swarovski Crystal Society 1987 - present)
Swan logo (1989 - present)
I must let you know that I am horrible at taking pictures of crystal! I always thought of myself as a good photographer, but I found it near impossible to get the lighting perfect, the details crisp and clear, and the stupid fingerprints!!! I am telling you this because I want to assure you that you will be VERY surprised at the quality and beauty of this pieces once they arrive... my pictures do not do them any justice!
