Crystal fans — heads up!
- The value of the Dollar against the Euro continues to worsen.
- Materials costs continue to rise.
- For nearly a year, Swarovski held the currency surcharge at the same level, despite the fall of the Dollar. But in late October Swarovski announced they are increasing the surcharge, thus making Crystallized Elements by Swarovski cost more for all US distributors and retailers.
The effects of the surcharge increase, plus an expected across-the-board price increase from Swarovski in early 2010, will ripple through the jewelry and bead markets as new goods arrive or as vendors implement across-the-board price changes.
Rest assured, Rings & Things plans to keep bringing you genuine Swarovski crystals at the best prices possible!
