The SCS ‘Loyalty Gifts’


The idea to issue an ‘SCS Loyalty Gift’ began In 2007, with the last year of the Annual Edition (AE) “Wonders of the Sea” trilogy (Harmony, Eternity, and Community).  Swarovski offered a loyalty gift to SCS (Swarovski Crystal Society) members who purchased all 3 crystal figurines in the Trilogy. The loyalty gift for the “Wonders of the Sea” series was the Tang Fish.
BTW, this was the first and only time Swarovski offered the Annual Edition Trilogy in both a clear and a colored version.

If all three “Wonders of the Sea” clear figurines were purchased, the clear Tang Fish was given as a loyalty gift. If all three “Wonders of the Sea” colored figurines were purchased, then the member received the colored version of the Blue Tang Fish. And if you purchased all six issues, you received both loyalty gifts.

The loyalty gift was not available for purchase (except on eBay and the secondary markets); all 3 AE’s had to be recorded as purchased in Swarovski’s member records, or you were not eligible to receive it.

In 2008 through 2010 the “Endangered Species” trilogy was offered. Again, SCS members who purchased all 3 in the series, the Pandas, Gorillas, and Tiger, received a Standing Tiger Cub as their loyalty gift.
An identical Standing Tiger Cub was also issued, with a different product number, that could be purchased by members for $180.

There will also be a loyalty gift issued in 2013 for SCS members who purchase the Annual Editions in 2011, 2012, and 2013, but just what it will be is not yet known. When ordering your Annual Editions, make sure that your dealer confirms that your SCS membership number is being used, when purchased.

  2. Crystal gifts are an excellent idea for fashionable and collectors. Swarovski crystal offers universal like-ability. Worldwide Swarovski is known for its luxury yet affordable products. This is one of the reasons why Swarovski crystal gifts are a very good option when you are looking for an original gift for a special person. Thanks a lot.Crystal Awards

    It's really not fair to give one country a gift that others don't have access to. Here we get cloth jewelry wraps and other non crystal items but in Hong Kong they seem to get much better gifts.

    An interesting thing about the loyalty gifts is the way they are distributed in different countries. Each country seems to have their own unique way of handling the pickup or delivery of the item. I wonder if it will continue that way or if Swarovski will use a common method to get the loyalty piece to the members.

    Pat. Good reminder about membership numbers. But as I am not a fan of the modern annual editions, no need for me to worry about them.

    Thanks. Handy tip to make sure about your SCS membership number being confirmed when buying the Annual Editions.
