Capiz Candle Holders – From Seaside to Tabletop

Capiz Candle Holders have been a favorite at Luna Bazaar for a long time. Why is that? Because they evoke an atmosphere of exotic, far-away places, and bring to mind sea, sand and palms. At the same time, the smooth sleekness of their iridescent surface is elegant and timeless. This makes them extremely versatile – usable in a wide variety of settings!

Now our new Silver-Edged Capiz Candle Holders join the gold-edged version in our product line-up. Silver is a lovely accent for cool colors, such as our Turquoise, Grass Green, and White.
With warm jewel tones like Purple, Red, and Mango, silver edging makes these colors pop.
You may be wondering, how does our new Silver-Edged Capiz compare with the popular Gold-Edged? In terms of price they are the same. However, we do have some candle holder shapes that are only available with a gold edge – the Cube design, and the Full Bloom. The timeless Lotus Flower Design is available in both.

Great for weddings, events, and home decorating, the Capiz Candle Holder truly works best in a casual seaside setting. In the dream-inspiring tropical location below Fuchsia Capiz would  be perfectly at home, picking up the color of the blooms.
So where and what is this mysterious place called Capiz? It’s one of the islands of the Philippines, in the Pacific Ocean. The countries it is closest to are: Indonesia, VietName, and China. From the East Coast of the US it is literally on the other side of the world. It is described as calm and peaceful. So, if you REALLY want to get away from it all, Capiz is your place. Also, don’t go there is you don’t appreciate seafood, because it’s the Seafood Capital of the Philippines.
(I’ve always confused Capiz and Capri. They couldn’t be more different. The Isle of Capri is off the coast of Italy, and is crammed full of luxury villas and casinos. Now I know!)
The shell from which Capiz products are made is translucent and opalescent. It is cut by hand to make a wide variety of products, including our candle holders. Wind chimes, lampshades, and jewelry are also made from the Capiz shell.

If you’re planning a wedding with an exotic, tropical theme, you may want to add our silver-accented glass votive candle holders to the mix. The colors coordinate, and they can withstand the heat of a burning tea light, whereas Capiz candle holders are too delicate, and therefore require battery-operated tea lights.We also have hand-painted glass candle holders with hand-painted elephant and henna-like designs.
Go exotic with these silver-accented and hand-painted glass votive holders!
