I buy a lot of these as gifts. They're Waterford, so people immediately know they are getting something "good." they have a nice weight and shape. Even if they are not someone's "chosen" crystal pattern that he or she picked out when registering for a wedding 20 years ago, they are nice to have as "everyday" glassware that is elegant. They are so inexpensive that if your drunk friend accidentally drops one on the lanai during a dinner party and smashes it, you can just laugh and say, "ahh, well, no worries, it is just my everyday Waterford after all." How awesome is that? You wouldn't say that if some idiot smashed grandmama's antique crystal, now would you? No. And that's why no one ever uses grandmama's crystal. It just sits in the china cabinet for display. This stuff is awesome and cheap enough that you can buy a whole set of it for someone. You look great, they look great, It's definitely a win-win
I ordered 2 sets of these glasses and was not disappointed! They really have a lovely faceted design and made my table! I used them with my Royal Albert China and it looked like they were made for that set! The quality is wonderful and they came well-packed and without issues. These are now my " go to" glasses for entertaining!
I purchased these glasses for a wedding gift. My friend was very pleased with the glasses. Unfortunately, Overstock failed to provide the note on who it was from. My friend had no idea that they were from me, even after putting a descriptive message that it was for their wedding gift. Was very upset the price of the item was put in the packaging for their wedding gift, very tacky! Even after putting it was for a gift, they still failed to send it without the price ect... Overstock also has no giftwrapping which is disappointing. Overall the product shipped in good condition, and was beautiful. I will order items again, but not as a gift for it was really embarrassing!
