Gold rimmed glasses are far from new to the world of dining and tableware, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have their moment in the sun once again.
Last year’s spring interiors obsession drew shoppers’ attention to short-stemmed tumblers and textured wine glasses. This year, the world of wine and food has acquired a new fascination, thanks to the one and only Kris Jenner.
Naturally, the Kardashian-Jenner mothership has an entire room dedicated to her glassware, and among a myriad of polished silver coffee pots and hammered gold water glasses, Kris shows off an impressive cabinet of champagne and gin flutes lined with gold. ‘gold.
It’s not the first time she’s influenced our shopping habits, and it probably won’t be the last, but if there’s one thing we can take away from this exclusive Poosh reveal, it’s that clear and crisp glassware has company in 2022.
Looking at the collections that brands have to offer, the gold in question is not strictly limited to the edge of the glass and retailers like Oliver Bonas are championing gold leaf detailing on their glassware. Take this £34.50 Joli saucer set, for example; Combining texture with a light-reflecting pop of colour, it’s a perfect choice to accent your table and, in duller weather, a touch of warmth too.
Where to buy gold-rimmed champagne glasses
No matter your price range, premium and high-end brands offer a myriad of gold-rimmed glassware. Anthropologie’s £14 Waterfall Coupe is available to buy individually for those looking to invest in a handful of statement pieces rather than a complete glassware overhaul. On the other hand, the Love Knots Flute Duo from Wedgwood’s Vera Wang Collection makes a poignant wedding gift and can be enhanced with a full selection of cake slices, tealight holders and picture frames.
How do you clean gold-rimmed glasses?
Hand washing is generally recommended for delicate glassware to avoid clouding the clarity of the glass in the dishwater. For this purpose, it is also advisable to use a mild detergent soap such as Ecover Zero and to avoid aggressive scrubs and scourers; a soft or cellulose sponge should suffice. Drying the glasses as soon as possible after washing should help minimize the chance of the gold peeling off the surface.
