Well I guess it had to happen sooner or later. Last night I was rinsing my Riedel Sommelier series Burgundy glass when I clinked the faucet hose against the inner rim. I heard a sickening dull cracking sound and my worst fears were realized. The thin crystal had cracked!
Am I going to replace it? I doubt it. The risk of breaking such a delicate stem compared to its cost, which based on my perusal of pricing at Amazon has gone up, is too great to justify getting another one. At least for now.
In case you aren't familiar with this crystal, it is the glass on the left side of the trio in the picture heading this blog.
Oh well, it was good while it lasted but no use crying over split crystal. Sigh..
