Crystal has a lovely vintage appeal that makes it seem like it belongs in the past, but crystal door knobs will never truly go out of style. Here at Direct Door Hardware, we are proud to offer hundreds of beautiful crystal door knobs from some of the best hardware brands on the market like Emtek, Baldwin, Grandeur, and Nostalgic Warehouse. These hardware manufacturers are known to produce top-quality products that are made to last, while also delivering unique style and design.
They look fantastic, of course, when installed in restoration projects and in antique-style homes. But a classic vintage knob, or a more modern colored crystal knob, can look exquisite in a unique modern home. When you think of crystal door knobs, you may picture a classic crystal cut into what is known as a ‘rosette’ shape, mounted on a simple brass backing. But with modern design and manufacturing, crystal knobs have far surpassed these simple, original designs. Innovative brands like Emtek and Baldwin offer crystal door knobs in any number of shapes and colors, paired with a vast range of unique and decorative backplates. You’ll discover vintage reproduction knobs with tall, striking backplates and unique crystal cuts from companies like Grandeur and Nostalgic Warehouse too. You can even find sleek and modern variations featuring square matte black backplates, with simple polished round crystal knobs. There truly is no limit to creativity and design when it comes to crystal knobs, and we hope you are inspired by our selections!
While these crystal knobs may appear antique and delicate, we promise you that they are made using the most modern manufacturing and durable materials. However, while crystal knobs are durable enough to withstand everyday residential use, they should never be used on exterior doors. Installing crystal knobs on exterior doors will often void any warranty agreements.Please note that traditional crystal knobs do not include a keyed locking mechanism. If you wish to install a crystal knob on a door that needs securing, then we recommend ordering a crystal knob skeleton key locking set instead.
Step back in time with crystal doorknobs and bring charm to your space with our help today. We also carry a wide assortment of crystal knob replacement parts. If your knobs have become damaged, we can help by offering individual knobs, spindles, and back plates. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to our door hardware experts!
During the early 1900s, metals like bronze, iron, and brass were crucial for the war effort. Aircrafts, weaponry, tanks, and more naturally took priority during WWII, so home hardware manufacturers were forced to get creative. It was around 1917 that crystal and cut glass became trendy. These materials were cut to resemble precious stones like diamonds and other jewels. Homeowners fell in love with the bright, striking styles and colors of these new door knobs.
Though they no longer hold the same popularity as they did during the 1920s, crystal door knobs are still found in homes across the nation. Many homeowners love the nostalgic and antiqued beauty of crystal, and when tastefully installed, they can add a lot of personality to any room. As antiquing has grown in popularity over the years, restorers are bringing old crystal and glass door knobs from yesteryear back to life.
Depending on the quality of the materials, crystal door knobs can range anywhere from $50 and upwards of $200. When choosing a crystal door knob, you'll find that those built without backing plates are often cheaper.
