With this doll I had different clues to help me figure out which doll this Barbie was. First the dress, I knew it belonged to Crystal Barbie. Barbie's hair was taken down so that didn't help. Her ring posed another story. Her necklace and earrings were the usual clear Superstar jewelry which came with Crystal Barbie. Her ring had a red stone that was on the Fashion Photo Barbie which was came out in 1978. With the help of the Barbie Doll Photo Album book (which has great close-ups of Barbie's face).another clue was the color of her lips. Crystal Barbie's lips are darker. So I believe this is a Crystal Barbie which came out in 1984. Marked on her back Taiwan. She is missing her iridescent boa and her shoes. By the way she was found at a Flea Market. Still as pretty as ever!
