It's Your Day, Drink it in

You may celebrate their birthday just once every twelve months, but with these beautiful handmade mugs, you can give that special person a daily reminder that they're truly cherished. Artisan potter Donna Rollins and her team hand-throw these substantial cups on a pottery wheel and then coat them with swirled blue and green glazes infused with minerals. To give these mugs individual charm, each handle is crowned with a natural stone that evokes your recipient's birthstone. Whether they're cradling pours of frothy latte, creamy cocoa, or soothing tea, each of these one-of-a-kind artworks honor their recipient with every steamy sip. Handmade in East Hampstead, New Hampshire.

        Comments about BIRTHSTONE MUGS:

        The birthstone that was used on the mug was so small and it looked ridiculous in the giant circle it was supposed to fill. I can't even give this to my dad, it looks childish. I'm really upset because it was such a cool concept.

        Comments about BIRTHSTONE MUGS:

        We ordered two mugs as a gift for the holidays. The mug themselves were fine and as advertised. The stones however were terrible. Both were very small, and both are coated in glue. I can't possibly give these as gifts. They look terrible and cheap. There is very poor quality control on this item. Another purchaser seemed to also have this problem. I purchased in spite of reading that review thinking that uncommon goods would make a point of taking out any of the mugs that remained that were not good quality. Apparently not. I would avoid these mugs. While the mugs themselves are ok, the stones attached are of poor quality, and the glue covering them makes it look cheap and messy.

          Comments about BIRTHSTONE MUGS:

          I bought 2 of these mugs. One mug was fine. The other had a very small gem with the clear glue all over. The gem was 1/4 the size of the hole it sat in. Very disappointed in the 2nd mug I bought as a gift for a family member.

            I gave my mother 4 of these, 1 for each of her children with their birthstones. She loved them! And they are the perfect size for cappuccinos which she needed anyway. They are handmade, so each was slightly different, giving each mug a unique flair.

                    The best thing about these mugs is the Rhinestone. I always wanted to buy a Mother's ring for her but I never like the way they looked. I was able to get my birthstone, my sister's, nephew's and mom's so she has all of us no excluding her birthday!!! Love them but I do have that they are not microwave safe as we always nuke when the coffee's heat turns cool.

                        i purchased two mugs, one for each of my best friends. the mugs are very nice themselves, but the stones are much smaller than in the pictures. my friends really loved them anyway, and they have both told me they are perfect for their morning coffee. so, the purpose was achieved.
