High Quality gift!

Very sorry it has taken this long to send the review, however, our Pastor doesn't retire until the end of this year and we just had his celebration. The sailboat with color fill was absolutely beautiful and the inscription was so meaningful. His comment was "I will take it with me wherever I go!"
It was such an appropriate item to give as they don't have plans laid in stone, but know they want to travel a lot and they live on and love the water.
Making a sailboat the perfect send off gift.

This was the perfect gift for our pastor who was retiring. We did this from the congregation and everyone, including the pastor, loved it. The wording on the ship was very appropriate.

Not happy!

The piece was very nice however you cannot read what is on the crystal... a piece of white paper has to be put behind it to see what is written on it. Not happy...

Hi Odean: If you take the award out of the presentation box, display it on a showcase table or shelves with a lighter background, the text shall be much easier to read. The award is made of clear crystal which is 100% transparent. As a result, background does affect your text readability, especially if it is black text on dark background, or white text on lighter background. We thank you for your business and understanding. In the interim, f there is anything else we could do to help, please don't hesitate to contact us. Best Regards, Customer Service Team www.CrystalCentral.com

Product Description

Pastor's retirement offers a unique opportunity to express your appreciation for the retiring pastor. It should not only be a celebration of years of dedication to the congregation, but also a celebration of unrevealed faithful services to the world- still to come!

This pastor retirement gift is both a symbol and a special remembrance. The gorgeous cut of the crystal in the shape of a sail boat denotes forward motion, new adventures and excitement ahead. The sail, full of breeze, really conveys all the possibilities that fill life after retirement. But the piece is so artistically designed that it becomes so much more than a token of retirement.

The beautiful base allows this pastor retirement plaque to be an effortless display piece. The sail is anchored to the base with a textured, three-dimensional globe. The frosted bands that span the face of the plaque add detail but don't interfere with the pristine engrave space that can be deep etched with any message you choose, free of charge.
