Swarovski Beetle Bottle Openers


The Beetle Bottle Openers have been one of our most controversial subjects among our ‘Crystal Fanatics’, for their ultimate uniqueness and for their design attributes… some like it while others do not think they are very attractive. What do you think ??

Beetle Bottle Opener – Gold – Rough surface
Var. 2
The metal body where the legs attach has a rough texture, crystal stones are not interchangeable.
These two issues have the same specifics as those above, the only difference is in the textured surface.  The difference is on the side of the metal; it is either smooth or rough in texture.

The Beetle Bottle Opener was also available in Genuine Silver. Possibly a prototype.

At one time, they were valued at several thousand dollars.
