Swarovski Zales


I recently wrote about Swarovski issued by Dillard’s Department Stores.

Zales Jewelers also issued pieces made with Swarovski Crystal, during the 1980’s.
Lions, Bears, Cats, Birds, Dogs, Elephants, Fish, Horses, & Wolves can be found among these issues, all displayed on crystal stands.
Because they are Rare, not easily found, & most are more substantial pieces than the Dillard’s issues, they command higher prices in the Secondary Market. Most of them are worth in the $100 – $200 range.

Here’s some examples:

"Zales Fish"

    Nice little pieces by the looks of them, although I have never come across any of them.
