Product Description

A charming, heartwarming scene from a school Christmas pageant depicts the Three Wise Men, set with a Golden Shadows Swarovski crystal gemstone - with a very low mintage limit!

Sold out at the Mint! Traditional engraving combines with the beauty and majesty of Swarovski Crystal on this pure silver proof! Artist Jason Bouwman has created an original work of art, a heartwarming vignette of a children’s Christmas pageant in which youngsters play the three wise men, bearing gifts. In the center, a costumed child in cloak and crown stands on stage, holding up the gift of gold(in fact, an embedded Golden Shadow Swarovski Crystal). Slightly behind him, a second costumed boy in cloak and hat holds a small box. To the left of the second boy, a smiling girl wearing a crown peeks out from behind the curtain - too shy to step fully onto the stage but too excited to miss the chance to look for her family!

Make this charming scene yours! All previous Canadian Swarovski Crystal Holiday Silver Proofs have sold out at the mint, so we recommend not delaying if you want to make this beauty yours. There may be discounted multi-packs available - click on the following links see all options!

The Three Wise Men at the Christmas Pageant!As the Curtain Rises…
It's the last day of school before the winter holidays begin. The classrooms, all silent now, are hung with festive paper chains of red and green. The silent halls are decked with tissue-paper ivy and glittering bells of golden yellow. No school tomorrow! Let the days of fun, snow, and freedom begin.

…But not just yet: first, there is this afternoon’s pageant. For the moment, holiday excitement is replaced by nervous anticipation. Excited children laugh, frown, and whisper their lines. In a few moments, the curtain will rise and the lines each student has painstakingly memorized must be delivered with zeal (and perhaps an occasional cue from Teacher). The three wise men peek out from behind the stage curtain.

    "There's your mommy!"
    "Do you see daddy?"
    "There he is!"

The lights dim. The crowd is hushed. The annual school Christmas pageant is about to begin! Parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers, teachers, and friends look on with delighted smiles, as smart phones and digital cameras make their appearance. Here is a happy milestone marking the season. In the days, months, and years to come, each will look back on this moment - so important to the little players who are about to begin - with the fondest memories of holiday joy!

Swarovski Crystal
SWAROVSKI CRYSTALSSwarovski is the luxury brand name for the range of precision-cut crystal glass products produced by the privately-owned company Swarovski AG of Feldmeilen, Austria (near Zürich, Switzerland). Swarovski crystal was born when a Bohemian, Daniel Swarovski, invented an automatic cutting machine in 1892. In 1895 the Swarovski company was founded when he established a crystal cutting factory in Wattens (near Innsbruck, Tyrol, Austria). Here he could take advantage of local hydroelectricity for the energy-intensive grinding processes he had patented.

Swarovski crystal contains approximately 32% lead to maximize refraction. The Swarovski Crystal firm produces a wide range range of products, but is world-renowned for the incredible quality and brilliance of its crystal jewelry.

In order to create a crystal that allows light to refract in a rainbow spectrum, Swarovski coats some of its crystals with special metallic chemical coatings. For example, Aurora Borealis, or "AB", is one of the most popular coatings, and gives the surface a rainbow oil slick appearance. Recent developments include the 2004 release of a new, patented cut, Xilion, designed to optimize the brilliance of roses (crystal components with flat backs) and chatons (diamond-cut crystals).
