I bought 4 of these Martini glasses for my home bar. They are gorgeous, and fun to show off. But they did cost me a bit more than I wanted to spend. Still would purchase them again.

I picked up a set of these Martini glasses because of the interesting shape - my other Martini glasses have the classic wide "v" and can be a pain if you are not careful with them, easy to tip over, chip the edges, etc. These Sommeliers glasses keep the weight centered, and are much better to use when I have a crowded table.
I purchased two of these glasses as a birthday gift for my husband. We were previously using the Riedel Vinum Martini Glasses, until we broke one. I purchased these and am so happy with the quality and beauty of these glasses. They hold just the right amount for a martini and because the lip of the glass is so thin, the martinis taste better. We are extremely pleased with these glasses and they add additional beauty to our Riedel wine glass collection. Definitely worth the money and will be purchasing more to use when we have company!
