Please note that there are inherent variances in custom, hand-made items.  Since our glass is hand-blown, the thickness may vary in several places. In Alto Cord pendants, this may cause some variation to how level the globes hang from one pendant to the next.

Alto Cord pendants can be upgraded to feature our Luxe Cord detailing. Learn more here.

Pendants are non-returnable.  Please measure and select a length carefully.

To help, we have created a Light Bulb Guide that will get you started on some factors to consider when selecting your bulbs.

We also have a Bulb Sizing Guide, which will help illustrate what various common bulbs look like in some of our common fixtures.

Check out the Specs tab for wattage restrictions and bulb size/shape recommendations.
