The “Duchess” Extreme Makeover

 In August, Lumenelle Lighting Restoration completed the restoration of "The Duchess", one of the largest crystal chandeliers in the country as well as 31 other historic chandeliers at the Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet. The Rialto is considered one of the ten most beautiful theaters in the nation. .

The restoration included the removal of every piece of crystal for individual cleaning. The size, type, and location of every piece of crystal was mapped so that everything went back where it was and missing and broken crystal could be determined and replaced. Lumenelle also completely rewired all of the chandeliers.


Over 1300 photos throughout every step of the process including the original condition of everything prior to the restoration. For more information, visit
