Love the look of these glasses.
ProsThe look of the glass is elegant and very useful. I get complimented on their unique beauty. They are great ice breakers.

These glasses are so beautiful and look like they're made out of ice. They're lightweight, good quality, the perfect size and shape, and are very comfortable to hold. I bought 2 sets at regular price and decided to get 1 more at sale price. Great purchase! I highly recommend.
ProsLightweight, good quality, nice size for drinking glasses.
