Own a piece of Met history and ring in the holiday season in sparkling style with our round cut sputnik ornaments. These one-of-a-kind ornaments come from the original sputnik chandeliers found throughout the Met lobby and auditorium. Made from fine crystal, and attached to a gold ribbon, these ornaments are truly worth celebrating.

These are vintage crystals and show wear from being in use for many years. The wear marks are not imperfections. We hand select each crystal to ensure it meets our standards for beauty, quality, and authenticity.

Sputniks

The Metropolitan Opera’s starburst chandeliers – a gift to the Met from the Austrian government – have been a beloved fixture of the opera house since it opened its Lincoln Center home in 1966.  Dubbed “Sputniks,” after the Russian spacecraft, these stunning, mid-century modern chandeliers reflect light brilliantly through clusters of Swarovski crystals.
