The Premier Chandelier LED Bulb

The Issue with  LED Bulbs and Chandeliers

It is not an easy task finding good LED Bulbs for Chandeliers. The fundamental issue is that Energy Saving Light Bulbs by their very nature are not good looking and LED bulbs as the ultimate classification of energy saving light bulbs are no exception. Chandeliers were originally designed for candles which were lit when it went dark and to reproduce this authentic look candle light bulbs were introduced to have similar aesthetics. With the traditional filament bulb then the light is radiated from the brightly glowing filament and this is cast through a clear glass casing and onto the chandelier crystals. This has the effect of maximising the sparkle from the crystals and produces a very pleasing overall effect.

The issue arrives when this effect is replicated with  LED bulbs . The LED bulb can either be made as a multiple LED candle bulb or a high powered LED bulb which will have one two or three single LED’s. The multiple LED candle bulbs are cost effective and they do produce a good light output and they are pretty compact in size so from a functional perpective they are ideal. However there are 2 dissadvantage. Firstly, the technology does not allow them normally to be dimmable and secondly, the look is very high tech and accordingly does not complement traditional chandeliers well.

Manufacturers then tried to disguise the multiple LED usage whether that be 40 LED’s or just 3 LED’s by making a frosted casing which then does not work well with chandeliers because the frosted casing means that you do not get the enhancement in sparkle from the crystals. Then to top it all some manufacturers produce the flame tip LED candle bulb but they are so bulky and large that the effect does not sit well with the aesthetics of the chandelier.

The New Invention in LED Candle Bulbs

However now there is a hot new product which can be seen on this candelabra. It is the LED bulb with the gold casing at the front.

This lamp has a single high powered LED and utilises a revolutionary light tube which channels and radiates the light producing an effect very much like a traditional filament light bulb. Additionally the bulb utilises the CREE chip which means that the LED does produce a very consistent colour temperature unlike some of the cheaper alternatives and the icing on the cake is that the LED bulb is dimmable. The CREE chip is also very reliable so you can realistically expect to get the 30000 hour life expectancy fro this light bulb unlike with many lamps which are rated with a high life but you still get some early failures. For bulbs which are easily accessible this is normally acceptable but a chandelier can be hung high above a staircase or in a gable roof which means that getting access to change a light bulb can be a problem!

Clearly this LED candle bulb is not for everybody because of the high investment cost and if you have a chandelier with 30 bulbs then the investment is certainly significant. However, if you want top quality combined with good aesthetics then this LED lamp is certainly worth serious consideration.

  3. Nice review. Invention in new LED bulbs is interesting part of this review. I agreed to previous post that LED and Solar energy is a great future lighting resource. Though this technology is highly developing and more company is entering for competition.
