Product Description

Wow audiences with this amazing, unique show-stopper! This beautiful shamadan features delicate, lacy metalwork, yet is extremely sturdy.

9 candle-holders, 3 tiers

22" high, 15.5" x 15.5" (21" diagonal) 4.8lbs.

We didn't cut corners with our shamadans! They are well made and durable, and are therefore a little heavier. It is 4.8 lbs.

The head piece is lined with foam and fits a head circumference of 21-23". Easily adjustable with butterfly nut (included).



Very minor assembly is required! Screw the head piece to the body of Shamadan (no tools needed, just twist it on.) Put the base on your head and fasten the butterfly nut in the back. The head base of the Shamadan comes with compressed padding, but you may find it nescessary to add extra padding if it is too loose. It should be fit and secure. Please see instructional product video below for further instructions on how to secure Shamadan. Please contact us if you have any further questions.

Turquoise International Shamadan prepping Steps, by Firqit Surayah Dance Company. “Turquoise International Shamadans are very beautiful, the most durable and the pleasant we have worked with”. “We perform weekly with Shamadans and love Turquoise International Shamadans they are the best “. Shamadan prepping steps by Firqit Surayah Dance Company 1. Adjust the fixture on the back of the head band, of the Shamadan to fit your head snug. 2. Wrap a strip of non-slip fabric around the head band of Shamadan and tie in back, to create grip 3. Cover head/ hair with a veil or fabric of choice and pin together in back of head to hold in place 4. Wrap another strip of non- slip fabric around your head to create padding and extra grip ( May apply as many head ties as needed, for your individual comfort) 5. Next insert candles in your shamadan, light and place on head. Tips: • Safety first: Always Check for clearance of ceiling height and curtains or fabrics that may be hanging when dancing with open flame prior to performance. • Always practice dancing, movements, and directional changes while wearing your Shamadan prior to preforming with it. • Never Leave Shamadan with candles in it in a car, because the heat / sun will destroy the candles quickly. • Always ask the venue you are preforming in if open flames are allowed, if not be sure to have on hand, Flameless /LED Candles just in case. • Always note air ventilation where performing prior to performing with open flames.

  1. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Posted by Sylvia Richards on 3rd Apr 2015

    This beautiful Shamadan is well made and fantastic. I love it, and so do my friends and family .

  2. LOVE the candelabra, not so much for the headpiece

    Posted by Heather on 8th Apr 2014

    The candelabra portion of the shamadan in very beautiful. It is constructed in one piece and is very solid and sturdy. No worry of having it become unbalanced due to shifting arms or loose screws. I love the color gold that it is, it is not a shiny smooth gold as you can tell it has been powder coated, but it creates an effect of antique brushed gold that I really like. You can see the weld points where they attached the pieces together but again, I like the handmade look of it and you would not notice unless you were looking at it from a close distance. The cups were a little disfigured when it arrived, which I am sure happened during shipment but I was able to easily reshape them. Overall, I LOVE and am very happy with the candelabra portion of this shamadan!
    Now the headpiece is less than desirable. the two do NOT go together whatsoever. They literally fit together snuggly (there is a screw that comes out of the top of the headpiece and the candelabra screws down onto it, very simple and sooo nice not to have a bolt sticking into the top of your head!) however, the look is polar opposite. The finishes are very different and as mentioned in the description, the color gold does not match. In my opinion you would need to cover the headpiece to hide this which a lot of dancers do anyway regardless so it isn't THAT big of a deal.
    The headpiece only has an extremely thin strip of foam-like padding (it reminds me of weather stripping you put on windows but thinner) which is essentially useless. Plan on redoing it. There are only 3 bars that connect the top to the round bottom (just like you see in the picture) The fourth that is usually located coming down at the back of the head is not there. This is good and bad. Good because it actually allows you to adjust the leveling of the candelabra no matter wear it rest on the top of your head! The down side is that you lack that extra stability of having that fourth piece. The circumference adjustment is adjusted by one wing nut and tends to slide after you have adjust it and put it on no matter how tight you make it. Also, the headpiece is on the shallow side which makes in near impossible to get a real secure fit. It is going to take a lot of work or finding someone to rework it or create a new one.
    So overall, The candelabra is absolutely LOVELY and exactly what I was hoping for! But, the headpiece needs A LOT of work to make it work. I would suggest to Turquoise Intl. to find a new maker for that part. It is a shame to not have the same quality and style throughout the whole piece. I would have either paid more for a higher quality headpiece or what I really wish is that I could send JUST that part back and get a better quality replacement.
