Among the myriads of chandelier lighting fixtures to choose from crystal chandeliers remains as the most popular preference. These chandeliers are constructed from cut glass crystal pieces that gracefully hang on the arms of the fixture. Crystals reflects light easily and the lights they reflect often produce shimmering effects which makes them all the more visibly entertaining. Crystal chandeliers were popularized by elite Europeans and wealthy Americans during 1920 s and 1930 s.
In case of large chandeliers their weight plays an important part. It is important to find out where and to what ceiling construction the chandelier will be installed or otherwise attached. You should take into consideration that an 18-arm chandelier for example can weigh up to 17kilos and such a weight will be attached to one point on your ceiling. In the case of some especially large chandeliers the construction of the ceiling should be assessed by a structural engineer.
