Monogram crystal wine glasses are the perfect gift for weddings and housewarming. It is a very personal gift and tells the recipient you really thought about your gift to them instead of buying off the shelf. When purchasing monogram crystal gifts, many people want to know what the difference is between lead crystal and glass. For glass to be classified as lead crystal it has to have a lead content of between ten percent and thirty percent. Many upscale wine glasses are made from lead crystal, such as the Riedel Vinum wine glass series. Per Riedel each wine glass is designed specifically to enhance the taste and bouquet of its intended grape varietal. There is also 24% full-lead crystal which is usually machine-blown, but in some cases can be mouth-blown and formed by hand. With machine blown lead crystal you can expect minor bubbles and swirls that are inherent to full-lead crystal. The wine glass walls are usually thin. When looking at drinking glasses or wine glasses made of full-lead crystal they can range from colorless to a subtle blue tint with an excellent sparkle. A full lead crystal wine glass will ring when it is pinged. Lead crystal glasses are heavier than most stemware due to the lead content. In California, Proposition 65 requires that any glasses sold to residents or businesses of the state of California have a warning sticker adhered to them that warns them that consuming food or beverages that have been kept or served in leaded-crystal products, or handling products made of leaded crystal will expose you to lead, a chemical known to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. Machine-blown crystal or glass has a very small content of lead. Many times the term crystal and glass are interchangeable. In wine glasses that are made from glass you may see small bubbles and other imperfections; however these are rare, but are not considered a defect. The dimensions of machine blown glass are consistent and the glass walls are thin and colorless. Machine-blown glasses will give off an excellent sparkle.
