There seems to be much debate on whether or not to store crystal stemware glasses rim side down or stem side down. Some experts will tell you to never place your crystal glasses rim side down, because you are adding stress to the delicate rim. Wine connoisseurs will tell you placing glasses rim side down doesn't allow the glasses to breathe. It can add stress to the delicate rim. Makes sense to me. Afterall, glasses are not designed to be placed rim side down.However, I personally store my glasses rim side down to keep the inside of the glass dirt and dust free! So, which way is correct? Well, unless you have gold-rimmed or extremely delicate glasses, both storage options are fine. However, if you are limited on space, storing crystal glasses up and down, will give you a little more room on your shelves. It adds visual interest too! What do you think? How do you store your crystal glasses?
