Shatter-resistant Stemware

 Good wine glasses break.  It’s one of the certainties of life.  And a reason why wine glasses make such great gifts: Almost nobody doesn’t need them.

But what if they didn’t? What if you could find crystal stemware that didn’t shatter when you dropped them or come out of the dishwasher covered in scratches?

They actually exist. Korin’s elegant shatter-resistant crystal glasses are both delicate and tough. I banged one on the floor and it remained magically intact. I could hardly believe it. 

The glasses aren’t cheap: $150 for a set of six. On the other hand, they could last a lifetime – and that’s an awful lot of toasts.
