Waterford Crystal At The Center of Times Square 2018

Times Square Ball drop

For 19 years, the iconic Waterford Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball has been launched to the excitement of New Year’s revelers worldwide. As part of the week-long send off until New Year’s day, the Ball’s creators hold a celebration which allows select guests to see the ball in its full glory.

Each year, Waterford’s designers introduce a new, signature cut crystal pattern, and the Ball is updated with new crystal triangles. This year, 288 of the 2,688 crystal panels that form the Waterford Ball have been updated to feature the “Gift of Serenity” Waterford Crystal triangles, creating a its unique quilt-like pattern. Continuing in the tradition of the “Greatest Gifts” collection, the “Gift of Serenity” design features a pattern that resembles butterflies flying along in a meadow — an expression of a calm, peaceful  state, conveying a sense of tranquility and composure in this tumultuous world.

Each piece of Waterford crystal is watermarked with the word “Waterford” signifying the finest crystal in the world. Waterford was first established in 1783 on land adjacent to Merchants’ Quay at the center of the Irish harbor town. Siblings William and George Penrose, were important developers and principal exporters in the city when they founded the company.

The 2018 Waterford Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball will drops 12 am, Monday, January 1st to the live crowd of approximately one million people and over one billion people tuning in to anticipate what the future holds in the New Year.
