When I got this Swarovski Bear Crystal Photo Frame, I was more than happy. I could never fulfill the dream of having one, price being the only factor. Launched in late nineteenth century, in Austria, Swarovski, is known for its fine and exquisite crystal glass products which have always made me wonder at their craftsmanship and creativity. The photo frame, by far, is my most fond possession.
Receiving and opening the Swarovski was a saga in itself.The blue paper bag carried a white hard cover case which was clipped neatly. On opening the clip, the safely stationed photo frame with the folded stand at the back came out. I took it out and made it stand. It immediately added sparkle to the moment! The smiling girl picture (that the frame came with) and the silver crystal bear hugging the edge made my day. Now, it stands safely on the night stand beside my bed.
The personalized Swarovski Bear Crystal Photo Frame is simple and elegant, and can enhance any photograph. The frame is made of glass and measures 6 1/2" by 8 1/2" and can hold a single 4" by 6" photo. It is more like a photo holder since it doesn't have any frame as such. A slot at the top of the frame is provided which allows the photo to slide into the frame smoothly. The exquisite, silver crystal bear is very small but adds to the wow factor of the collectible. The tinges of color that it has, here and there, make it all the more beautiful. The bear clings on to the bottom right corner making it a cute novelty. It can also make a lovely gift for birthdays, first baby, graduation, or any special occasion.
Later, I have come across similar photo frames that spell Swarovski, but you can tell them from the original ones by the not so proper logo. Most would be fooled by the fake Swarovski novelties. So, just check the original logo before buying. Better still - buy it only from the original outlets to avoid the hassle.
The price, of course, is high. At $250, it’s expensive. However, I would not mind buying it for my loved ones, for very special occasions. The joy of giving to your loved ones is priceless, isn’t it!
