.Traditional crystal chandeliers are classic, timeless, and elegant. Our Italian Crystal has Venetian heritage. Venetian crystal (from the glass-making regions in and around Venice, Italy) is molded, not cut. Youâ€™ll notice a rounding of edges that comes from fire polished. Molded crystal, though never as brilliant as cut crystal, has a subtle charm and is an exceptional value. It is an ideal budget crystal for heavily dressed and/or commercially oriented chandeliers.
