      I like the fact that Swarovski gave this dolphin an unusual name that starts with a D, instead of giving it a common name like Don or Dan. Anyway, this was a darling little piece that I think is retired, which is a shame. It is one of my favorite Swarovski pieces, which might be hard for some Swarovski fans to believe, considering how small it is in comparison to Swarovski’s other pieces. This was a piece from Swarovski’s South Sea collection that came out several years ago, which was when Swarovski was creating figurines of sea life.

      Diego the dolphin measures at three-quarters of an inch tall and one and a


      half inches long. He is made of a lovely pale blue crystal that resembles the color of an aquamarine gemstone. His eyes are colorless, and they are made of smooth crystal. That provides a good contrast to the checkerboard-faceted crystal of Diego’s body. And I think it is wise that Swarovski made his eyes colorless, because it doesn’t take your attention away from Diego’s body (which is what your attention should be on).

      What is great about this piece is that you can position Diego two different ways. You can stand him up on his tail, and he will not fall. That way it will look like he is jumping out of ...


      • the water. Or you can position him horizontally so that he is resting on the tip of his nose, fins, and tail. That way he looks like he is swimming. It was clever of Swarovski to fashion him in that way, because then if you ever get tired of having him in one position, you can switch Diego to the other position.

        Dolphins seem like such friendly creatures. This piece puts me in mind of the schools of dolphins that you can see jumping out of the water occasionally in Cape May, NJ. So if you like dolphins or marine life in general, then you will love Diego. I display him next

        to some of the other Swarovski pieces from the South Seas collection.

        There is a website called “maryannsgiftshop.stores.yahoo.net” which has a listing for Diego the dolphin. He costs $29.95, but they don’t have any in stock right now. I don’t know whether more stock will be coming in, but at least you can see what he looks like. The site provides a very clear picture of him. Or maybe you can check around on the internet to see whether any other websites carry him. If Mary Ann’s website gets more in, then that is a good price for Diego. I think I paid about $5 more for him when I bought him several years ago.
