The Benefits of Crystal, Lead-Free Crystal & Other Materials
Lead Crystal – The small non-visible bumps in the glass created by lead can help aeration of the wine as you swirl it in the glass.
Break Resistant Crystal Blends – When mixed with other materials, such as magnesium or titanium, Crystal becomes significantly more durable and very difficult to break.
Acrylic / Polycarbonate – Perfect for outdoor or everyday use. However they are not glass, so the rim will be a little thicker.
Glass – Cost effective and durable as a lesser expensive option to crystal.
