No other lighting fixture can provide class and glamor to a home than crystal chandeliers. What makes these chandeliers breathtaking in their beauty are the faceted adornments that dangle from the chandelier's frame, tiers and arms. The number of ornaments on the chandelier will largely depend upon your personal tastes. You may want a large multi-tiered and multi-branched chandelier with a wide variety of crystals or a small fixture with a few well-placed drops. These adornments come in the form of crystal drops, spears and prisms. Chandelier prisms especially have an impact on the quality of light that your lighting fixture will produce.
As of today, many people boast some terrific handcrafted chandeliers in their living and dining rooms. Once the variety of chandeliers increased, the prices started to go down which brought the services of chandeliers to normal homes. People from all over the world started to buy these exquisite pieces of art and used them as decorative pieces as well as lighting sources. With exquisite finishes and supreme designs, these chandeliers have gained a well-deserved reputation since their creation. Today, you will see countless beautiful designs of hand forged iron chandeliers featured in luxurious homes that deliver a promising aura to the interior. Old fashioned chandeliers, however, are still one of the hottest decorative products in the market. Many companies have taken up the job to find and renew these chandeliers and sell them in the demanding market. You will not find a better decorative piece than a hundred year old hand forged iron chandelier. Although they come at a heavy price tag, these chandeliers offer the unique splendor of the yesteryear.
From the central fixture, the chandelier arms extend outward to serve as bases for light bulbs, candles and ornaments. They are usually made from the same materials as the base (metal, brass or wood). In the case of antler chandeliers, it is the deer antlers themselves that serve as the lighting fixture's arms. The styles of chandelier arms also vary, including S-shaped, fluted, or roped design.
Chandeliers are in use from the medieval period, i.e. the sixteenth century, and are believed by many people to have their origin in the European countries. During that period glasses, crystals, and ceramics were brought into use for making chandeliers, and for shaping them in various forms and sizes. Commonly, chandeliers have metal rods that are used to fit the light holders perfectly. These metal rods are fully decorated with stylish designs and art work.
