The main function of any lamp is the illumination of space. It doesn’t matter what shape and color it has, on which surface it is installed or built-in, which light sources are used, etc. All of these parameters are secondary, although they are important when buying. The question arises is chandeliers with gemstones a luxury or an investment?
In the field of lighting, it is customary to divide lamps into two main groups: technical and decorative light. Based on the names of the groups, it is not difficult to understand what each direction gravitates to and what are the main functions of these lamps.
Let’s talk about decorative lamps. Stylistically possible modern or classic options. They vary in shape, materials, color schemes. The design of classic chandeliers usually has a traditional shape. But this does not mean that the segment of classical lighting stands still, and nothing happens in it. On the contrary, it’s really dynamic and fast-changing.
Differences of classic chandeliers:
- number of light sources and power
- the form
- the size
- color of fittings
- applied materials
- fabrics (color, texture, decoration)
- decor (forms, material
Who chooses classic chandeliers?
It is a common mistaken belief that crystal chandeliers and classic lamps are chosen by people who are over 50 or boring and prim persons. This is not true. The classical style is not tied to either age or position in society, or even to style in the interior. Murano glass chandelier easily becomes the center of the interior in the style of a loft or cold hi-tech.
Chandeliers with gemstones
For spoiled buyers and lovers of classic chandeliers, manufacturers of lighting pay special attention to decor. Truly luxuriously ironed by lamps decorated with semiprecious stones. Such chandeliers become not just a light fixture, but an expensive interior decoration, a profitable investment, an object that does not lose value over time. Indeed, every day the reserves of valuable minerals are reduced, which means that precious stones will only increase in value.
There are not many producers of gemstones chandeliers. The creation of such products is hard manual work with a careful selection of stones of the desired shape, size and color shades. Delicately decorated with gemstones, the lamps do not look elaborate, but rather sophisticated, emphasizing the owner’s delicate taste and status.
Depending on the color size and shape of the stones, the lamps have different meanings and create the desired image.
The world of stones (precious and semiprecious) has always fascinated people. They seemed radiant, mysterious, desirable. For many centuries, people used crystals as amulets, charms or talismans. Minerals were endowed with supernatural and healing power, as well as the ability to influence fate. For others, gems were a sign of wealth and power.
Precious and semiprecious stones – coveted, mystical and even cosmic objects!
