Although the first hand forged iron chandeliers were simple in design they played a vital role in the making of the most stylish chandeliers of the future. The initial design was simple. Heavy iron chandeliers were fitted with a few candles and heaved up to the ceiling with metallic chains. Once people started using these chandeliers that only provided light many designers began to enhance the design of the chandeliers. Luxurious people and royalties demanded beautiful handcrafted chandeliers that could brighten up their homes.

Chandeliers are ornamental or decorative light fixtures that are used for ceiling lighting. Usually chandeliers are centerpieces in big halls churches public galleries palaces hotels mansions etc. Common residential houses also have cheap chandeliers in the living room which are simpler versions of the chandeliers and are not as extravagant as the ones seen in public and commercial buildings. Chandeliers can be lit up with candle lights incandescent lights and also by energy saving bulbs.
When you re speaking of chandeliers the first thing you must speak about is chandler lighting. The lighting coming off of a chandelier is always beautifully brilliant and magnificent. There are many chandeliers that actually enhance that brilliance. Chandelier makers have always strove to create the most light output. Many makers have created whole pieces that are made of reflective silver so that they could increase the light output. Certain styles of chandelier have placed mirrors around or among the bulbs to increase the light going into the room. When you place mirrors on a chandelier not only do you increase output you also increase the ability to play with the lighting. With a small twist of a mirror the light is bounced to another part of the room or made to hit another mirror. With that thought in mind you also have the ability to cut and etch the mirrors to create a large range of visual effects from rainbows to circles to a split beam that dances on the wall. The way a chandelier lights up the room is a magnificent sight.
Candle chandeliers made from metals such as brass brushed nickel and wrought iron are elegant pieces that resonates the rich history of the past.

Antique metal candle chandeliers are among the most expensive lighting fixtures today and may cost up to $60,000 because of their rarity and origin making them collectible items. If you want to save energy and you have the right budget you can always opt for an antique metal candle chandelier.
