Wood and silver are popular choices in candleholders. The silver candle holder on a dinner table setting really make it look romantic and classy. For every style of decor there is a candle holder to match the decor. I especially love the carvings on candle holders as they are intricate and works of art. There are some beautiful wooden carved candleholders as well. Decoupage wooden candleholders are also lovely. The patience and dedication of the artists who carve and decorate the candle holder is truly amazing.
Candle holder come in single candle holders or multi candle holders. The Jewish Menorah has nine candles. You can get different combinations of three, five, or even 12 set candle holders.
