The beauty of crystal is enhanced by skilled craftmanship.

Engraved Awards: Crystal Awards

To create crystal, lead oxide is added to molten glass. This changes the molecular structure and gives crystal a much higher refractive index (which creates the characteristic sparkle when the glass is cut). It also increases the specific gravity and hence the weight of crystal object. Just as hand-cut crystal tableware is highly prized and more expensive than regular glassware, crystal awards (like sterling silver cups) are the kinds of awards that are likely to become family heirlooms. The quality of an award is a reflection of the value of the achievement it recognizes, so outstanding achievement deserves the appropriate recognition. A crystal award just might fill the bill.
