What is a crystal chandelier?

Crystal chandeliers are a chandelier which is adorned with many or few glass crystals. Unlike the glass we are used to in windows or drinking glasses, the glass of a crystal chandelier contains lead oxide, which makes it refract light in a way which is far more brilliant to look at. The beautiful and elaborate details of crystal chandeliers can add a touch of luxury to a home.
