I seem to remember that when I first started collecting in 2009, there was a LE purple mother's day prism released in the US. Does anyone have one? How is it different to the production purple prism?

Many thanks! Very Happy

Is this the one you are referring to?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/290678103623?ssPageName=STRK:MEBOFFX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1432.l2649#ht_500wt_1361

I saw this in another eBay auction and it said it was a LE purple/pink prism released specially for Mother's Day in the UK in 2009 (similar to the story on this one). It didn't look like the production purple prism to me, as it was more two-toned.

I didn't bid on it, but I was watching this one...now I'm wondering.

Was the UK release different maybe? Anyone know?

I also heard the LE Mother's day prisms are definitely the same as the current production purple prism, which did not exist at the time of the Mother's Day release. They released the pruple prism to replace the red-pink prism...

I have seem the Mother's Day prisms, and there is definitely no pink in them. They are identical to the paler of the current production prisms. Although with the production prism you can find dark purple ones if you search - none of the Mother's Day ones I have seen have been dark.

Oh and there was no UK release - that I know of.

Hope this helps!

My LE mother's day prism has pink in it. See the picture.
And it isn't purple. The bead is pink.

Its on te left next to a red prism.
I have a purple prism too (can't find a picture at this time) and is very different in colour. Much paler.

Found the picture. The purple prism is on the pink bracelet. It sits on the left next to a crazy lace agate. On the red bracelet you can see the mothers day prism almost next to the purple prism.

Are you sure that they haven't sold you a now retired red-Pink prism as mothersday prism? Cause it just Looks like it. All the md's prisms I've seen before were purple!

casarobi, this looks like the red/pink prism that has been retired. I have the mother's day prism and the several purple prisms and I cannot tell them apart from each now.

Ohw, ok. Thanks for the info. I will change my excel list. It no problem for me, I bought the bead because I liked it, not because its an LE or retired bead.

Thank you so much everyone! Very Happy So am I right in concluding that this "LE" bead released in the US for Mother's Day found its way into the regular production line? (another re-release?!) Question

I have written to HQ about this in 2009, and they answered me that the LE purple mothersday prism was/is exactly the same as the production purple prism. When I asked how it could be possible that it was named 'LE' the answer was that this came from the distributor in the country, and that they had decided to call it that way. Same goes for the so called mother's day prism that was released in Holland in 2009, but turned out to be the exact purple prism that is in the current collection

In that time I have also ask questions about this bead and me was told that it was made for the Netherlands only.
Maybe was the Mothersday set a tryout for coming out whit a special for one country such as the tulip and clover.
