Is a line or cord in crystal a flaw?
No. A line or cord is not considered a flaw. This almost invisible difference in the density of the crystal occurs during the fusing of molten crystal. Although visible when it reflects light, the cord disappears when a goblet or vase is filled with water.
Does a seed or bubble in crystal constitute a flaw?
Tiny bubbles the size of a pin point sometimes form in the fusing or melting process and do not affect the quality of the piece. Such slight variations are natural results of handcrafting.
What does 18/10 mean?
18/10 stainless steel, the European standard of excellence, refers to the amount of nickel (provides luster and allows for great detail) and chromium (corrosion resistance).
What's the difference between the way products look online and offline?
How our crystal appears online has a lot to do with your monitor resolution. To aid in your visualization of the product, we strive to provide you with good quality images, large photographs and the ability to zoom in on photographs online. Rest assured that when our product arrives it will always measure up to our company's stringent quality standards.
