stained glass with diamond bevelsThis set of windows is made with stock (pre-made) diamond and half-diamond bevels. A clear, textured glass is used as a border. In this way, the proper size panel can be made without "custom" bevels, keeping the cost very reasonable.

Diamond bevels are definitely a classic leaded glass look. In fact, the term "leaded glass" is often misused to refer to just such a look as this, probably because the beveled glass itself used to have a much higher lead content, facilitating the creation of lots of nice rainbows when direct sunlight passed through the bevels. Nowadays, "leaded glass" most often means the use of lead came to hold the glass together (a pre-formed I-beam of pure lead that allows the glass to fit into its two channels) as opposed to copper foiled glass, the other method for holding the glass together.

P.S. Although there is less lead content in modern-day bevels, they still create an adequate number of rainbows to satisfy even the most discerning rainbow lover!
