Q: We inherited a crystal chandelier with the house we purchased last year. Some friends/relatives are shocked by the fact I want to keep it. I do want to update it a bit. Mainly, I want to replace the amber-colored middle tier crystals with another color (turquoise, smoke, grey, light green, something clear or opaque). These crystals are roughly 8" long, and I am having trouble finding anything bigger then 4". We have been systematically removing the 70's and 80's from our house (34' of floor to ceiling mirrored walls are gone), and need help updating this chandelier. Does anyone have a source for LARGE replacement crystals?
