During the XVth Century altar chandeliers were decorated with a host of little gem drops. It is during the XVIIth century however that the fashion for rock crystal drops took off in royal and aristocratic drawing rooms, as an echo of the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles.
From the XIXth century to the modern-day, lighting appartus have also been decorated with bohemian crystal or lead glass drops, thus keeping the allure of luminosity through crystal alive.
