With stems encircled by silver rings engraved in the Latin for Love Conquers All, Amor Vincit Omnia is perfect as a bridal or wedding gift, or for an anniversary, or any loving relationship. The collection includes two styles of champagne glass and a martini. Amor Vincit Omnia is unique in the world of crystal design as a collectible and as a gift. Amazon.com Put on the ritz with this classy pair of coupe-style Champagne stems from Orrefors. Low and broad with a slight curve at the lip, the sparkling crystal bowls also look 'de-lovely' holding a martini or even a scoop of sorbet and fresh berries for dessert. Encircling each graceful stem is a silver ring, inscribed with the phrase, "Amor Vincit Omnia," Latin for love conquers all, along with the signature of the Swedish designer, Efva Attling. Each coupe holds seven ounces and stands 4-1/2 inches tall. The pair makes an excellent wedding or anniversary gift, especially since it comes couched in a tantalizing gift-box that is both lined and covered with satin. Amor Vincit Omnia is Attling's first collection for Orrefors, whose master glassblowers hand-make each piece at the renowned Swedish glassworks. The lead-free crystal collection also includes a wine glass, martini cone, and cylindrical flute, all designed for the contemporary romantic. To protect the delicate stem and keep the crystal brilliant, the Amor glasses should be carefully washed and dried by hand. --Ann Bieri From the Manufacturer About the Designer: Efva Attling made her first piece of jewelry when she was 11. At the age of 16 she was taken on as a pupil at one of Sweden's foremost silversmiths. After a 12-year career as a model for Eileen Ford, and then as a singer and songwriter, she once again turned her attention to design. She produced clothes for Levi's, H & M, and her own brand, Pretty Pregnant, as well as sunglasses for Scandinavian Eyewear. Since 1996 she has been designing jewelry for her own Efva Attling Stockholm brand. The Amor Vincit Omnia stemware series is her first collection for Orrefors. With her innate sense of style, Attling has succeeded in bringing a modern silver idiom to the venerable tradition of Swedish glassmaking. About the Kosta Boda: With characteristic craftsmanship and good design, Kosta Boda has become one of the leading glasshouses in the world. The company's three glassworks in the villages of Kosta, Boda, and Åfors each have exciting individual stories of their own yet stand together under the common brand name Kosta Boda. The corps of designers currently on retainer at Kosta Boda works with both utilitarian and art glass. Glass results from a great many meetings between people--artists, craftspeople, and lovers of glass. The artists of Kosta Boda have a decisive role to play in all the creative stages of the process. The cooperation between the designers and the skilled craftspeople is very close; indeed, it is essential if the designers are to transfer their intentions to the glass. The History of Kosta Boda: Kosta, the parent glassworks of Kosta Boda and the oldest glassworks in Sweden still in operation, has a fascinating history that forms a valuable part of Swedish cultural heritage. The glassworks was founded in 1742 by the governors of the counties of Kronoberg and Kalmar, Anders Koskull and Georg Bogislaus Stael von Holstein, both former generals in the army of Karl XII and distinguished veterans of the battle of Narva, among others. The two county governors founded the glassworks upon the instructions of Fredrik I and modeled it on Continental glassworks. The works was situated deep in the spruce forests of Småland, on a site midway between the two country towns, and near a village that was then known as Dåfvedshult. The main reason for choosing this location was the unlimited availability of wood. Enormous quantit
