Champagne glass with diamond by Imperial.The 'Imperial' champagne glass is the world's most luxurious glassware

…and at EUR 65'000 euros a piece it is most probably also the world's most expensive champagne glass. This hand-made glass is plated with 18 grams of gold and jewelled with high-quality 8.1 carat diamonds.

There are two main types: the pure, which has the diamond in clear glass, or the black edition, where the backside of the diamonds is embedded in black colored glass and the diamond has the 'diamonds against black velvet' effect.










"I love surprises – champagne and strawberries, all that pampering, romantic stuff. Guys ought to know how to pamper their women properly."


(Danica McKellar)

Diamond champagne glass by Imperial.Austrian glass artist and designer Tobias Berger and Natascha Marx have partnered up to create diamonds in glass. After two years working together they at last succeeded in developing a process of suspending diamonds in glass – which they have since patented.

Their 'Diamonds in Glass'-technique makes it possible to unite diamonds with glass at 1'200 °C. The glassblowers shape every product of a series without a template, yet with miniscule tolerances, making every piece an exquisitely valuable unique creation.

The pieces are made of borosilicate glass which has a melting point of around 1'200 ºC, whereas diamonds burn at a temperature of about 800 ºC. The glass blower introduces the diamond into the viscous glass mass and places it in the desired position.

Marx' and Berger's concept has a lot of applications including caviar dishes, napkin rings, luxurious stemware, ashtrays as well as jewelry items like bracelets and rings.
