The Crystal Wizard: We Restore & Repair Swarovski Figurines
According to the dictionary…To Restore is to “put the figurine back to original condition using replacement components when necessary”.
(The terms broken and damaged are used interchangeably when discussing Swarovski Restoration.)
Advantage of Restoring Broken Swarovski Figurines: Undamaged replacement Swarovski components are used to replace all damaged Swarovski components. When properly restored, no defect will be detected. So, the Swarovski figurine will be ‘like new’ and retain full value.
Disadvantage of Restoring Damaged Swarovski Figurines: Sometimes replacement Swarovski components may be difficult to locate or the components may be costly. This can make Swarovski restoration more complicated and expensive.
Consideration: Replacement components needed for restoration jobs are not available from Swarovski. They are found from salvage from other Swarovski figurines. Components that frequently break are more pricey. For older figurines, just finding salvageable parts could be tough. These situations do complicate what (on the surface) might appear to be a simple Swarovski restoration job.
Sometimes a damaged part becomes unattached. Reattachment is also possible using your crystals. If your crystals are damaged, we sentimental attachment.
This will not increase the value of your item for other collectors,
