Selecting Crystal Gifts

Crystal is a unique and elegant gift. It is higher in quality than glass, because of the way the crystal is made. Crystal statues, figurines, plaques and awards all have definitive qualities that set them apart. The most noticeable is the clarity which is much higher than glass objects. This produces a reflective sparkle and generally makes the crystal award more interesting.

When it comes time to select a crystal gift, make sure to consider a few things. First of all, the award or gift must match the occasion or reflect a certain interest. Crystal globes are often a safe choice because they are worldly and universal in theme and can represent almost any endeavor or interest from traveling to map making.

Another option to consider is engraving. What type of engraving is available. Laser etching is the clearest available and is state-of-the-art. If the engraving costs extra, this is another thing to make note of. Time to engrave is also important.

Finally, make sure your crystal gifts or awards are real crystal with a high optical clarity. Usually, the higher the quality, the higher the price, but it pays to get something that is considered the best in its class, since your gift choice or award is supposed to represent the same thing.
