This week, in honor of the upcoming holidays, Preston is offering not one but two special picks: two different but equally stunning candelabras. If you sign up now, you’ll have access to these elegant pieces, which are also on sale.
Nothing says drama and elegance like a candelabra. The Suffolk Candelabra is hand-cut crystal and has holders for five candles. It also has lots of height; it’s 20.5″ tall without candles — with candles, it’s a truly grand centerpiece.
The holders have a tall, slender grace not unlike a champagne flute, don’t you think? This candelabra would make a wonderful statement at your holiday party or New Year’s Eve celebration. Or, give it as a special gift to the classiest loved one on your holiday gift list.
The Gotham Candelabra is also hand-cut crystal and holds five candles, but this piece is slightly smaller and has a timeless style. This candelabra is ideal for intimate gatherings. In fact, it’s the candelabra Preston uses when he’s having a small dinner party or celebrating the holidays with only his closest friends and family.
The silver plating around each candle holder catches the light beautifully, giving your table a lovely extra twinkle. If you have a traditionalist on your holiday gift list who appreciates the soft, majestic glow of candlelight, this is their present.
