Variations of the chandelier have been used since the most ancient civilizations; however, the chandelier as we know it today was first used during the medieval era, with the earliest painting depicting a chandelier dating to 1434. Different styles were developed around the world, with cultures using their available materials to create these ornate hanging illuminators. Throughout history, chandeliers have been a mark of prestige in the homes of royalty and aristocrats. Our Mini Diva Chandelier is a refined, modern lighting fixture perfect for a contemporary coastal home. Like iridescent fish scales, the glass circles that surround this piece give it an elegant, oceanic appeal. Since each disk of glass is made and formed by hand, each fixture will be slightly unique.
