This was a gift for a friend/coworker who was moving on to another job. She appreciated the message on the box (a definition of glass ceiling) and the meaning. Personally, I had expected it to be larger, but it was heavy enough to do it's job.
It made a great gift. She really appreciated the handiwork of the designer as well. We spent about 10 minutes excitedly talking about how it was probably made. Nice symbolism and an unintrusive, elegant addition to a desk.

It's a unique way to say congrats
This product is heavyweight, nice quality and easily engravable.
It was a great gift for an inspiring woman who has accomplished a lot, against all odds.

I love the uniqueness of this item and while it is a little smaller than I expected, it's quite nice. However, the quote on the outside of the box references women and minorities. This was purchased as a gift for a new employee of mine who is a young female with lots of potential, but she's also a minority, and I have no idea how she'd accept such a statement coming from her non-minority boss. The description of this item online says nothing about minorities. Had I known the box would say such a thing, I might not have purchased it. I like the paperweight so much though, that I replaced the box and wrote my own personal note to the recipient.

This paper weight sits on my wife's desk in her Washington office, reminding her daily of the need for women to smash those glass ceilings.
I have such a difficult time buying birthday gifts for my mother, but when I saw this, I knew I had to buy it for her. She works in a sector that is mostly male-dominant and is often not recognized for her accomplishments. This gift is so empowering!!
