There is absolutely no denying the beauty of crystal chandeliers. These interior conversation pieces have been delighting the senses since the 17th century. While there are many different types of crystal available today one crystal stands head and shoulders above the rest. Strass crystal manufactured by Swarovski is recognized the world over as the finest crystal known to man. This crystal is first machine cut and then hand polished and coated with an invisible optical layer creating a stunning effect. It is these Swarovski crystals that are used every year in the design of the unique Swarovski Crystal Palace Collections.
Not every chandelier requires the care or two-day polishing of the Pabst Theater chandelier. In fact some modern chandeliers acquire their elegance from their simplicity. Some chandeliers rely on crystals or faux crystals to help accentuate their shine but others use metal detailing with just a few bulbs providing light. There are even wooden chandeliers that mimic the first chandeliers that consisted of wooden cross beams fitted with candles.
If you think you might prefer a real candle chandelier (and who could blame you?) you will face a wide selection of outstanding designs to suit any taste. Arguably the most beautiful of all candle chandeliers are those made of glass or crystal. However these require a great deal of maintenance and attention to ensure that the candles do not tarnish the beauty of the piece. (It should be noted here that candle wax should be cleaned from any holder regardless of type). Another consideration of these elegant chandeliers is that they tend to be more expensive than those made of metals (bronze wrought iron etc.) but they certainly add an amazing effect to any room in your home.
We commonly think of "antique chandeliers" as those sparkly monstrosities with several tiers of crystal ornaments from the Victorian Era. Although contemporary interior designers say that these chandeliers have gone out of style these "classics" have made several comebacks over the decades. This is proof enough that these chandeliers have a timeless charm that not only appeals to all people but can easily complement any type of motif ranging from Minimalist to ultra-modern decor.
