A Look at the Swarovski Hello Kitty 2012 Releases
We've noticed a couple of Swarovski Hello Kitty ornaments we wanted to share with you as they are 2012 limited edition releases meaning they will only be available this year.
Last year we fell in love with the magical Swarovski Hello Kitty, Limited Edition 2011 - a large scale crystal Hello Kitty we would have loved to seen (and owned were it not for the high price tag of £5,100!). This year sees the release of another large scale Hello Kitty ornament but in a darker shade of grey and black instead of the classical pink and white.
This year's colour scheme may not appeal to everyone but nevertheless it's easy to appreciate the labour of love this ornament is. Limited again to just 88 pieces worldwide, this is a rare ornament and definitely for the most discerning Swarovski and Hello Kitty collectors. Each model has been engraved with it's limited edition number from 1 to 88.
The entire model has been embellished with glittering Swarovski crystals set in Pointiage resulting in a truly unique and wondrous piece. A massive, and very precise, 23,325 crystals adorn this magnificent work of art in an array of colours including black, clear, grey and golden tones. Priced at the same level as last year (£5,100) it's not in the reach of many collectors but for the serious Swarovski and Hello Kitty fans owning this is a must.
This is a less decadent, and thus cheaper, ornament than the amazing model above but despite it's simpler design and cheaper price tag Kitty still retains her charm and cuteness. In this ornament the Hello Kitty character is shown standing in all her glory in light shades of crystal. Carefully crafted from fully faceted clear crystal, Kitty reflects and dances with the light sparkling beautifully. Playful, printed hearts in shades of rose and white adorns this ornament adding to the cute factor.
Pink tones have been used to create the look of her iconic dress and she also features a beautiful crystal bow featuring pink and clear crystals. Ideal as a birthday gift or as a Christmas present this limited release ornament would make a wonderful gift for collectors young and old.
Both of these ornaments are must-haves for any Hello Kitty fans and the cute nature of them appeals to everyone.
