Crystal accessories are not only sculptures that explore the beauty of form, they are also, by their glassiness, vessels that play with colour and light.
They don’t go out of style and they have an ethereal quality that makes them stand out on any shelf, accenting a good part of wherever they are placed with dramatic allure.
How does one spot good crystal? Flicking a finger against a crystal piece to hear how it chimes can be somewhat crass, best to follow the eyes: good crystal has high lead content that gives it clarity and reflectivity beyond plain glass, it is also somewhat denser and can be shaped thinner. Elegance at first sight.
