Over one billion people around the globe watch the ball drop in New York City on New Year's Eve. No matter where you celebrate the new year, the iconic Waterford crystal ball, inlaid with 2,688 crystal panels, is sure to be glittering on a television screen in the room. To ring in 2019, Waterford just announced their new design, and its theme: "the Gift of Harmony."
"New Year's Eve is a holiday that encourages us to reflect upon the past year as well as distinguish what's to come for the year ahead. Like music's harmonic chords, the gift of harmony seeks the refuge of accord and compatibility amid the discourse of the world for the betterment of all," says Michael Craig, President of Waterford America.
The nearly 250-year-old Irish company makes crystal pieces treasured by collectors for their clear finish and precise cuts, which maximize the sparkle. This year's pattern features delicate stars cut into pristine crystal, and has been replicated in glasses, ornaments, and snow globes. Want a piece of history in your home?
