Since everyone is talking glassware, does anyone else have an opinion of the Schott-Zwiesel "Diva" stems? These are the ones from titanium, not lead, that are supposed to resist breakage. I have learned (the hard way) that only the bowls are this fantastic titanium. The stems and feet are still very delicate.
These are actually my glasses of choice. They cost a fraction of what either Riedel or Spieglau cost, they are very elegant looking as they are have very long stems and large bowls, and break far less than Riedels Sommelier series. I have used them for about three years now, and only my mother-in-law has managed to break one during washing. Two Thumbs UP!!!
