Luigi Bormioli Michelangelo 14 1/2-Ounce Beverage Glasses (Set Of 4)
I registered for these for my wedding and was delighted when I saw that they had been purchased because they are so pretty. However, when my husband and I opened the box and pulled one out we both just kind of looked at each other like, "Really?" They are so narrow that if we were to put ice in it and then liquid we would only be able to take 2-3 sips before we would have to get up and refill them. They are just so small! We will be returning these and be on the hunt for some new glasses that will hold a reasonable amount of ice and liquid.

So far, I love them
I've only had these glasses a few weeks. I purchased them because I also have some wine glasses of the same brand. I purchased these to replace some other beverage glasses that did not react favorably to the dishwasher. Within a few months of purchase, the "other" glasses had dishwasher haze and crazing. I'm hoping that these hold up better as the wine glasses have no etching from the dishwasher.

not worth it
These glasses are a nice size to hold and contain a good amount of liquid (though my hand does not fit inside for cleaning). The one box I opened contained 2 glasses with numerous clear bubbles on the sides. Additionally, the glasses at the top have a permanent frosted etching of SPARX which I found very displeasing. These will be returned and the hunt for water glasses continues.

Do Not Recommend
While the glasses are very pretty and hold up well when full, they are prone to being knocked over easily when empty or only minimally filled. And, when they do break, as at least one of any glass you buy eventually will, hundreds of tiny, painful shards result, rather than a simple break into a few pieces.
I have also had them crack when filling up a beverage, without major temperature change.

Gorgeous and Sturdy
These glasses are spectacular. Beautiful and classy, these glasses are the only ones in the thousands of styles I looked at that appealed to the elegance I desired for my glassware. They are weighted in the bottom for stability and crystal clear glass that stays clean. Love them!
