CV – Current Value. The term CV is often used to place a ‘current value’ on a Swarovski retired piece. This term is often misused in online auctions. Current values are usually an insurance value (what you would collect from an insurance company for a damaged piece if your collection is insured), not a suggested selling value. No seller should ever expect a Swarovski figurine to sell for any quoted insurance value, as they are usually highly inflated. Additionally, If the item is sold using a secondary market specialist, their commission is often factored into the value’s selling price. For many years, Swarovski values increased over the years. Unfortunately, this has not been the case in recent years.
Always remember that, unless it’s a piece that is rarely found in the marketplace, that its value is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
