WELCOME TO THE CRYSTAL LODGE, the home of rare and retired Swarovski crystal. We are the UK's premier secondary market Swarovski crystal company - a company with a long trading history, a company you can rely on and trust. We have a world-wide customer base, and many thousands of happy customers.

We hope you will enjoy browsing our website for information about Swarovski crystal, and of course, shopping and/or pre-ordering longed-for Swarovski items which are no longer in production, from us.

We have an on-line shop packed with a huge selection of retired Swarovski crystal animals and other products, which are available for immediate despatch worldwide. Don't forget this means you don't have to pay upfront and wait weeks for the item to arrive like you would using a brokerage company. There are no confusing lists of different prices for the same item for buyers to trawl through. We stock our own crystal, therefore the prices are fixed, and the items can be despatched immediately. For sellers, because we buy your entire collection, you don't have to send individual items off to us one by one as and when a buyer is found, which is expensive, time-consuming and can take years to sell every single item.

For rare and unusual items, we also operate our fabulous Crystal Detective service tracking down those hard to find crystal pieces for you. We have the contacts worldwide to make this possible and have an excellent success rate.

You can visit our on-line Swarovski crystal shop by using the shop links on the left of this page, or by clicking the "shop" tab above. When you find the item you are looking for, click on it to reveal the second page which has the description and more photos.


Available from the drop-down menu in the Insurance and Valuations tab. Why not download a second copy so that you can create your Swarovski wish list?!

Also available is our fabulous Swarovski Crystal Reference gallery, arranged in Year of Introduction and Year of Retirement order, but fully searchable so you can view the search results in pictures, rather than words. Completely free to use - just visit the reference section above and follow the link, you do not need a special account to use the gallery. The gallery is updated throughout the year when changes are announced to keep it as current as we possibly can!

April 2021 update
We will not be purchasing Swarovski collections or individual pieces of Swarovski crystal from new clients for the foreseeable future. This is because we already have many Swarovski collections on our books, which we are working our way through and it would be unrealistic to add to that list at this time as it will take a while, to say the least, to get through these. That's not to say we are not purchasing Swarovski crystal collections - new stock arrives on almost a daily basis - we just have so many Swarovski collectors already wishing to sell that we want to make real headway through that backlog before we start to take more Swarovski collections onto our books.

For those of you seeking to sell your Swarovski collection: before contacting us, please read the "Selling Swarovski Crystal" page (this can be found by selecting "Selling Swarovski Crystal" from the drop down menu under the "About the Crystal Lodge"). This will tell you everything you need to know about selling your Swarovski collection. When we purchase Swarovski crystal, please be advised that we do not purchase Swarovski collections immediately or make any offer/valuation until your collection best suits the gaps in our stock levels. We are absolutely snowed under with offers at the moment, and are regularly offered 8 or 9 Swarovski collections per week. We only purchase mint condition Swarovski crystal in the original packaging, which must also be in good condition - and importantly, we only buy what we need/what we think will sell, so not every Swarovski collection will be of interest to us. Please note that we do not buy or sell Swarovski jewellery, watches or accessories - nor can we provide valuations for these items as our specialist knowledge is centred on the Swarovski crystal figurine and functional product ranges, and this is also where our client base lies. We are not interested in broken/not perfect items as we feel that items in less than perfect condition should not be put back into the market place. We do not purchase unboxed Swarovski collections.

Payment methods

We offer payment via both WorldPay and PayPal.
The choice is given once you get to checkout stage. WorldPay is a very secure method of payment, which requires you to complete your card details yourself - we don't get to see them, it goes direct to WorldPay for processing. PayPal needs no introduction. We have no preference as to which method you use. Beware of any company who can't offer more than just PayPal and can't process credit/debit cards over the phone. This doesn't show a high level of commitment to the client. You can pay us on the phone via all credit/debit cards if you prefer to do so, with the exception of Amex. We no longer accept cheques, but bank transfer is also available to UK and international clients. We can send you the details you will need if you wish to complete your purchase this way. For certain items, bank transfer will be the only option that we accept.

We are happy to ship internationally for all but the very large pieces, for example signed limited editions and any single item over 2kg in weight. We can ship those items to you, however, we cannot cover the cost within our flat rate fee. You will need to ask for a shipping quote. In these cases, we only charge you the exact cost of shipping and we will look for a minimum of 3 quotes so that you get the best deal possible.

Orders delivered to UK addresses - FREE delivery (includes Channel Islands, Highlands and Islands).
Clients in Europe pay a flat rate delivery fee of £12 per order, not per item.
International clients pay a flat rate delivery fee of £15 per order, not per item.



We don't use your information for anything other than fulfilling your order.
We don't give or sell your information to anyone else.
We do not have a mailing list, we do not send out unsolicited e-mails and we don't cold call you.
We will contact you to acknowledge orders giving details of when and how your order will be despatched, and we will respond to e-mails that you send to us, but we will never e-mail or call you out of the blue!
Your data is safe with us, we respect your privacy and we protect your information.

To locate our UK insurance valuation guide, click the insurance tab above. The Excel spreadsheet will allow you to add in the number of each piece you have, plus will calculate the total for you, saving you a lot of time. This service is completely FREE of charge! Valuation notes are also available to guide you through the process.

Here are the 5 aims of The Crystal Lodge:

To provide Swarovski crystal collectors with a fully functioning e-shop in which they can purchase and/or pre-order retired Swarovski crystal in a safe, secure environment.

To provide an on-line shopping experience which is intuitive for clients to find what they are looking for and with one price so they know exactly where they stand.

To provide collectors who wish to sell their Swarovski crystal collections with the opportunity to sell the entire collection in one simple transaction as soon as we require the stock, and for a fair price.

To use our blog page to keep you up to date with the latest news and information about your favourite Swarovski products. Please note that we would never reveal issues like next annual editions etc, as this is information that Swarovski themselves want to surprise you with!

To promote Swarovski products in a good light, and impart expertise and specialist knowledge about retired Swarovski crystal.

We also bring you links to other companies who can provide specialist services to Swarovski crystal collectors, such as collectible insurance, bespoke cabinet makers and so on.

To some extent, we are a victim of our own success, with copy-cat companies springing up from time to time who often "borrow" our ideas and innovations. However, they don't have our trading history, they don't have our contacts - its not worth taking the chance. We say "why shop with the rest, when you can shop with the best?" We are proud and highly honoured to be the only company who Swarovski UK are happy to recommend to their clients. We feel that says it all.

So that's a little information about The Crystal Lodge. Don't forget that if you are looking for a particular retired Swarovski piece/pieces and can't find it here, use our Crystal Detective facility and we will search for it for you.

As Swarovski collectors ourselves, we feel we are in a position to provide the sort of website and secondary market crystal company that Swarovski crystal collectors want, deserve and will enjoy exploring. We want to bring back the fun into crystal collecting. We deliberately leave products which are not currently in stock up on the website not just so that you can pre-order but also to provide a valuable collector's resource about your favourite Swarovski products!
