Choosing Your Finial

How to Choose Your Finial

Once you decide where you want it to be displayed, choosing your finial is as easy as 1-2-3!

1. Choose a style. This is subjective to your own specific tastes. There is simply no right or wrong here. Think about where you will display your finial and what style best complements that area. Currently we offer five different finial designs (See Finials). Which one do you like best?

2. Choose a size. Once you know your style, it is time to decide how large or small you need your finial to be. Generally, the size of finial should be relative to the size of the structure or place the finial is going to be displayed: Think "scale" here. The larger the structure or the more prominent you wish the finial to be, the larger the finial should be. All finials are available in Small, Medium, & Large sizes. Go to individual finial pages for more details.

The images below illustrate the difference between a Small, Medium and Large finial. All finials are shown on the same cupola in order to give you a fair comparison of scale.

In this particular case, we went with the Medium Copper Florentine Finial item #102CM (as shown in picture below). Due to size of the two car garage and cupola, as well as the distance away from the eye, the Small finial was just not big enough. Although the Large finial would have also worked, we felt the Medium finial did the job.
Keep in mind: a finial will look smaller the further away from you it gets.

3. Choose a finish and material. This is like choosing the color of a car, often the final yet deciding factor in your purchase. Again this is a subjective decision. Black or white? Silver or gold? Polished or brushed? It’s your choice based on your personal preference and distinctive tastes. Keep in mind where you will be displaying your finial so that you choose a finish that best complements that area. Currently, we offer a copper finial as well as eight differently finished steel finials for each of our finial designs. You can view the different finishes on each individual finial style page. For detailed information, just click to view the following styles: Venetian  Florentine  Roman  Parisian  Londoner.

Our copper finials are hand-formed from pure, solid copper sheet, they are not copper plated. They are the classic option for the discerning person. They will age gracefully and obtain a green patina over time.
Steel finials offer an economical alternative to copper finials. Steel finials also offer additional color and finish options. For more information on our finials see More About Finials.

Every finial comes complete with a black powder coated steel rod making it easy to display in a Roof Mount, Garden Pole, or Floor Base. See
Ways to Display for details on mounting options.

All Dalvento finials are warranted for up to three years from any manufacturer defects. See Warranty for details.

Each Finial has it’s own innate beauty. With so many options available, the one you choose will be specific to you, reflecting your personal style and taste.
