Sparkling wine may be a traditional holiday beverage in many cultures, but this season beer also gets some added sparkle, thanks to a collaboration between Swarovski and Stella Artois.

Stella Artois Crystal Chalice

Swarovski and the Belgian brewery have released the ‘Crystal Chalice’, a version of the traditional Stella Artois beer glass studded with gems, to mark the holiday season. Each chalice features a platinum rim and was hand-blown in Turkey before being sent to Austria to be studded with crystals.

The design retains the brand’s traditional curved shape, which helps to retain the drink’s aromas. A select number of the handwash-only glasses are available to buy at Fancy for a crystal cool $500.

The glass is the latest Swarovski collaboration on a festive beverage, following last month’s launch of mini crystal-studded bottles of Moet & Chandon sold in vending machines in Selfridges.
