Wine glasses that do not have a safety rim, which is a “bead” of glass around the top of the glass are considered to have a sheer top or rim.  This feature is usually found in more expensive glasses.

It is important to note that wine connoisseurs do not consider any glasses that do not have a sheer top or rim to be a glass that they would keep in their collection for everyday personal use.
