Crystal baguettes are long narrow prisms that are commonly used by themselves or in graduated basket chains. They become a focal point of a chandelier and are a fairly large prism that can refract a lot of light from the chandelier.
Baguettes are usually 2 to 5 inches long but may run larger or smaller in special cases. Many designers use them because they command attention and are a fast prism to install. Baguettes can be beveled along the top and sides. They usually have a flat back.
