Capiz is a flat, almost transparent outer shell of windowpane oyster (Placuna placenta), a bivalve marine mollusk, found in coastal waters of the Capiz province in the Philippines, which is where the name originated. More shells are harvested once every two years in bays and lagoons around the island of Samal.

Windowpane oysters are edible but mainly valued for the capiz shells. Originally used as a glass substitute due to their transparency and durability, these round shells have recently entered the world of fashion and decor. When harvested from the sea, capiz shells are cleaned, treated, and prepared for manufacturing decorative items, including capiz shell lighting. Materials for the capiz chandeliers you see here did not travel far from the harvesting area, as they are handcrafted and assembled right there in the Philippines. 

If you are looking for beachy and nautical-themed chandeliers, bring the coastal bliss right into your home with a capiz shell lamp, a stunning and unusual lighting piece suited for any room.
