Clear Glass Votive Holders for Silver Colored Votive Candles

Silver colored votive candles work best in clear candle holders. That way the silver color of the candle can be seen and appreciated. Some wonderful votive holders go well with striking colors such as silver. Slightly rounded glass votive holders highlight the silver candles nicely while allowing less wind to bother the flame. Straight sided glass holders are simple but contemporary.
