From 1994 to 2013, the Warner's Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski had been available for separate book purchases, allowing Swarovski crystal collectors to purchase the book or book set that best suited the figurines that they collected.
Through the last 20 years, Swarovski product alignment within their own brand has frequently changed, most recently with the discontinuation of the use of the "Silver Crystal" name. Additionally, consumers have changed their very own collecting desires and habits.
Evolving with the company changes and collecting habits, Warner's Blue Ribbon Books is moving forward also. The original two separate books has now been replaced by a set of three books. This shift to a set will now ensure that a collector will be able to find their Swarovski figurines in the book set (vs "it being in the OTHER book")
The first volume includes the complete index for all three volumes. This allows the collector to most easily find the figurines they are seeking. This new feature replaces the previous separate index in each book.
The Swarovski Catalogue Set is ideal for keeping accurate inventory of your Swarovski collection and acceptable for most insurance requirements.
Summarizing the changes, it is no longer possible to purchase the following publications as separate books: Swarovski Silver Crystal Book, (color edition), Swarovski Book Beyond Silver Crystal (color edition), Swarovski Silver Crystal Book, (black and white edition), or Swarovski Book Beyond Silver Crystal (black and white edition). Collectors now purchase a set, consisting of 3 volumes.
Warner's Blue Ribbon Book on Swarovski Crystal is in its 21st year of publication.
The 2015 Swarovski Book set will be available 3rd quarter of 2015. This year, we are going to align the books with Swarovski announcements, introductions, & retirements. This will allow us to include alot of the current year introductions and a more accurate list of product retirements for the current year in the 2015 book set.
