Crystal chandeliers became popular when a 17th century glassmaker discovered how to make easily cut glass crystal. Until that time only rock crystal or fragile crystillo could be used for chandeliers. With the cheaper glass crystal, the popularity of crystal chandeliers exploded. They could fill a room with all the glittering colors of the rainbow, and effect that still makes them a very popular option today.
Pendant lights hang on a cord or chain, and differ from chandeliers because they're a single light or a small group of lights at the end, while chandeliers have arms with multiple lights at the end. The terms are often used interchangeably, but pendant lighting offers a distinctive and simple look that's hard to achieve any other way.
