A chandelier combines a number of archetypal symbols into a single fixture that adds function and décor to almost any interior. Glass, crystal, light, metal, and at times even candles each contribute their own unique, respective identities into a combined synergistic array of light, energy, and matter – out of which rises a new form whose very image has become what is quite possibly the world’s most renown and beloved symbol of elegant lighting. The wide variety of chandelier lighting fixture types makes them readily applicable to almost any environment.

Chandelier lights add a refined and ornamental material presence to the light they emit above any table, room, waiting area, or place of business. The material comprising a chandelier’s fixture contributes much to the visual impact it has on surrounding decorations, room atmosphere, and overall decorative theme. The nature of the environment itself also matters a great deal as well in determining what type of chandelier to obtain for optimal luminosity and aesthetic effect. Normally the chandelier functions as the suspended centerpiece over the center of the room or a portion of the room. This allows it to bring both task and functional lighting to its environment or add accent and decorative lighting adjunct to other interior lights in other portions of the room. Such a range of versatility accounts for much of the chandelier’s enduring popularity for both commercial and residential lighting requirements.

The crystal chandelier, of course, is the most popular form of chandelier in the world and the one most readily visualized by people everywhere. Crystal differs from glass in many points of differentiation too numerous for the scope of this article to address. The primary difference that most people notice in crystal chandelier fixtures is a “diamond-like” quality to glass that causes the light to both refract and disperse at different angles than it normally would when passed through clear glass.
