THE SCHONBEK OPTIONS GUIDE
A made-to-order brand, Schonbek offers lighting in your choice of more than 50,000 combinations of finishes, crystal types and styles.
HAND SELECTED CRYSTAL
Crystal is transparent glass of a high degree of brilliance and optical purity, appreciated for its decorative beauty.
Schonbek fixtures are trimmed with the finest crystal available, ensuring an heirloom quality piece that will be in your family for generations to come.
Crystal can be crafted in a number of shapes and colors, and may be machine-cut, hand-cut or molded into beautiful geometric forms.
Machine-cut crystals have facets that are sharp and perfectly defined with crisp edges, allowing more light refraction giving more sparkle to the crystal piece.
Hand-cut crystals offer a more classic look and feel. The skill with which a crystal is cut determines how well it reflects and refracts light. The balance of precision and craftsmanship unlocks a crystal's unique brilliance and luster. The process is labor intensive, and patterns from tools may be left on the crystal, adding to its beauty and attesting to the traditional methods used in this process.
No matter what style, the quality of the crystal used in Schonbek lighting remains superior.
Schonbek fixtures are available in different crystal types. Here is an overview of the most popular crystal types offered. Not all standard fixtures are offered in every crystal type.
HAND CRAFTED FINISHES
Our beautiful finishes are specifically designed to complement the crystal used in our lighting. Finishing begins right at the bare surface of the metal as our artisans carefully apply the selected finish. Some pieces are enameled to a brilliant shine. Other pieces are powder coated and finished using various proprietary dipping and hand rubbing techniques to highlight its unique design and show the crystal trim to its best advantage
