Although I am very pleased with the size, quality and overall appearance of the piece, I was disappointed in the packaging. As this will be a first anniversary gift with the shards of glass placed into the tube, it would have been nice to have it in better/nicer packaging rather than wrapped in layers of bubble wrap in a brown cardboard box.
This was as lovely as pictured and was a very meaningful gift to my husband and a great way to display the chards of glass from our wedding.
I am a Christian woman, who married a wonderful Jewish Man. To honor his religion I purchased a blown glass to break at the end of our ceremony along with the beautiful Crushed Wedding Glass Beloved Wedding Stand, which contains a vile for us to pour the broken glass from our ceremony into and keep forever. I love the sentiment "I am my Beloved's and my Beloved is Mine!" It is so beautiful and true. This item was sturdy and well made to last a lifetime and was even more beautiful in person. I am so glad I purchased it as my husband found the the sentiment very touching. Customer Service was great as well and my items were shipped promptly and arrive in perfect shape. I received emails with the delivery info, etc. so I always knew when and where my package was and when it would arrive. I will DEFINITELY shop here again and will continue to refer others here as well. Thanks Guys!
