Simply said, these ornaments are magnificent! The museum quality pieces are each hand-crafted, from German glass, but made entirely in Egypt by artisans who spent years learning the techniques that make these ornaments a stand-out on your Christmas tree. They are colored and fired in a kiln to make sure that the color is fused into the glass. The etched designs are intricate and they are also covered in 24K gold accents, making them unique and elegant for gift giving or to decorate your own tree. Because of the firing process, they only come in certain colors which are natural to their products: Christmas Red, Red, Christmas Green, Green, Purple, Pink, Blue and Yellow. You will easily recognize the quality and craftsmanship that goes into each piece, from an Egyptian glass company that takes pride in their ornaments, each one a work of art upon your tree!
