It seems like such a shame that the breaking of the glass is such a crescendo within a Jewish wedding ceremony, and then the pieces of glass are just, well, pieces of glass. I mustn't have been the only one who felt that way because we found Mazel Tov Glass, the heirloom mazel tov glass.
Founded by three friends who blew glass together for years, they designed the Mazel Tov glass last year as a gift for a wedding they were attending. The Mazel Tov glass comes as a small glass in a velvet pouch for the ceremony. After the ceremony, the pouch and the shards of glass are mailed back to Mazel Tov glass where they are blown into a beautiful vase. You can even select the shape. Pretty cool gift, I'd say.
