love the altar pendant light. From Australia. Idealy with a glass bottom and real candles If the Chandelier is going above a table, the the diameter should equal the width of the table. For example, if the table is 54″ wide, then a Chandelier with a 27″ diameter would be appropriately sized. The Chandelier should hang approximately 30-32″ above the tabletop. This is low enough to complement your table settings, but high enough to be out of the way.
