I bought these for a relative as a Christmas gift. I took a peek at them before wrapping them, and decided that I wanted a set too. They have a heavy feel, and the cut glass sparkles like you would expect from Waterford. Other reviews had mentioned that they were too large at 12 ounces each. I measured their volume using the glasses that I had previously used, and the Waterford glasses held exactly the same amount. If they seem too big, maybe you should add a second shot of liquor.
Glasses arrived via USPS within four days and double box with lots of peanuts so no breakage at all! Definitely recommend hand wash these as most dishwasher detergents will cloud the crystal as they do all dishes. The fill capacity is exactly 12 oz and durable as well as being lead free to used everyday if you so desire.
I have collected several pieces from Waterford over the years. Even the full leaded crystal. This is just as beautiful and you cannot tell the difference at all. Nonetheless, I treat them as treasures so they will last. This was a great bargain, compared to other websites. This way you can afford to purchase more than one set. Great gifts for any occasion. They are pretty solid and heavy as well. Very classy! I saved all the boxes that they come in. Makes it easy to travel, or maybe someone might like yours! I suggest that you purchase the complementary pieces. Looks absolutely fabulous in a place setting. Mix and match and wow our guests. What a bargain this is! Class at a bargain price.
I was looking for a set of decorative full lead crystal drinking glasses. The set I chose arrived quickly, and I am very happy with the quality. The price is correct for such beautiful glasses. They are heavy in weight, and display the colors only full lead crystal can. Very pleased with my choice.
