Swarovski & The Steiff Bears

Swarovski Steiff Limited Edition Sapphire

Steiff recently released a New Steiff Bear decorated with sparkling Swarovski stones, named Sapphire.  The bear features a deep blue coat of silk material & has paws encrusted with Swarovski Crystals. Sapphire is also decorated with a strand of Swarovski stones to create a choker around her neck with the famous Steiff button in her ear.

Steiff Sapphire is a limited edition bear; there are only 2000 available.  She is 10" tall and retails for $280. Each Steiff Sapphire bear includes a numbered certificate of authenticity and is packaged in a special Steiff gift box.  The Sapphire Steiff Bear can be purchased from the Steiff USA site.
