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.
When I received my order for the Fifth Avenue Crystal Medallion Stemless Goblets, the shipping box looked just fine and so did the product box, but I knew immediately that a glass was broken. I could hear the pieces rattling around. It looked like one of them had been smashed and then it was put in the box, and only one was broken. The other three glasses were just fine and I was surprised at how big they are. They're much bigger than other stemless goblets that I've seen. They have a pretty design. The glass is a little thin, but it's not too bad. Overall, I like these Goblets.
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!!
