These are very nice goblets. Although not crystal but the glass is a high crystal clear quality. The etching really adds a classy touch. The thickness is just right for me and not too fragile. They can be used for many types of beverages. They are a perfect size 17oz. I use these to drink my beer and can serve wine in them for entertaining company. The rims are lazer cut so the lip edge is perfectly smooth. I got a set for a housewarming present and ended buying two sets for my own home.
