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.
I filled one with ice cubes and a soda, and when I picked it up with my hand around the upper part of the glass, it broke in my hand and spilled all the liquid, all the glass pieces, right into my hand and all over my clothes, not to mention the table and carpet. If you fill it full up, grab it closer to the bottom!!
