I am so impressed by the workmanship and detail put into the Crystal Red Rose in Vase! The crystal catches the light brilliantly, and the light glows through the red of the rose. The rose is loose, so I can use the vase separately for real flowers if I choose to, but I haven't yet ---- it's just too pretty! This makes a terrific anniversary or engagement gift -- works as a Wedding or Mother's Day gift as well. You will not be disappointed!
