New Year's Clarity

Set of Four Crystal Cocktail Glasses with Platinum Edge and Foot Rims (LEO Design)

New Year's Eve will sometimes conjure wistful memories: happy pasts, loves lost or the recognition of passing time. One's resulting mood might be happy or sad—or both at the same time. And it sometimes effects a clarity which allows self-reflection and the resolve to initiate change. Personally, I like the New Year because it inaugurates a fresh start. And who cannot use a fresh start every now and then?

Start the year with a different type of clarity: the clarity of these crystal cocktail glasses from the 1950's. A sculpted stem resides between platinum-banded top and footer rims. The platinum gives the design a crisp punctuation, yes.  But that's not all. The metal also protects the crystal rims from excessive wear and tear—helping the glasses to provide years of stylish service. Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
