Ah Crystal...It is no longer an heirloom in your grandparent's formal dining room .
Now there is modern...
As well as different styles of traditional

1. Handcut vs machine cut: Handcut is more expensive and more limited, because of the technique.
2. Lead content: The sparkle in an individual crystal is caused by a higher lead content.
3. Forget brands: You will probably say Waterford is the best, but the factory has been closed for years. Stick to the above.
