The Swarovski Zales Birds

These were issued in the 80’s only in the USA for the Zales Jewelry stores. Each of the frosted birds are perched on a clear faceted vase.
There were six of these:

  •     Cockatoo
  •     Dove
  •     Eagle
  •     Owl
  •     Parrot
  •     Toucan

They were issued in 1998 & Retired in 1991 & retailed between $20 and $35. Their value today is between $100 – $150. They measured from 33mm to 46mm in size.
It is very likely that the same frosted birds used on the Swarovski Thimbles (see my Sep 7th article this month) are also perched atop these Zales figurines too.
Zales also issued other Swarovski pieces, some of them highly sought after by collectors, but that’s for another article.

    I worked at Zales as store mgr during the Swarovski rein. They not only had a collection of figurines, they also had a complete line of jewelry! I have the entire collection of figurines. I may have to unpack them and see what they are worth!?
