It's quality glass and etching is clear. I personalized it with two names on top and descriptive words for friendship instead of names, such as true friends, confidantes, etc. And instead of the year, I put the word Love. It turned into a friendship ornament instead of a family ornament and was fun to create. I am getting a jump on my Christmas shopping. My friend and I exchange ornaments every Christmas and I pride myself in finding unique ones to give her. This one certainly fits the bill. I love it.
