Swarovksi celebrates the Chinese Year of The Dragon with a $20,000 Longwang

It’s time again for the Chinese New Year celebrations, and it’s special because 2012 is the Year of the Dragon. The Chinese Dragon is a symbol of power, wisdom, and luck, and this year you can ring in the new with the king of dragons Longwang in all his grandeur. The 11 3/8 x 14 inch golden and red-hued statue comes encrusted with 66,219 handset crystals using the Pointiage technique. The polished crystal base is done up in blue to depict the sea. Priced at $ 20,000 the statue is limited to 888 pieces only and comes with a certificate of authentication.

However, the product is no longer available online. If you want to buy it online, and can let go of the opulence factor, then a $ 1,000 variant is available too, that is if you don’t have a similar one already!
