Colored Crystal in Chandeliers
Most crystal chandeliers sold worldwide are made with all-clear crystal, and it's not hard to see why. Clear crystal is guaranteed to go with whatever color scheme your interior space has, or may have in the future. Really good quality crystal, like the kinds we use at Michael McHale Designs, also pick up and reflect many of the colors of the room.
But colored crystal in the right dose certainly has its place. We generally like using two contrasting colors (like the sapphire blue and topaz pictured here), and it's important not to overdo it. We only use Swarovski Strass colored crystal, which in terms of vibrance and clarity, has no peer in our view. We sweat the quality of our crystal and for colored crystal would never use anything else.
