Help choosing and finding mini pendant lights (and kitchen eye candy!)

So, we've recently had some demo work done in our house (pics coming soon!).  And as exciting as it is, picking things out for the revamped space is a bit daunting.  We are starting with looking for 3 mini pendant lights to go over our new breakfast bar, which is small at just 6' x 18."  The issue is that we would ideally like to spend no more than $70 per fixture, and hubby and I don't really agree on what style we like.

I want something transitional - I really had my heart set on clear glass, and he was frosted or art glass, which I just don't want.  We will ultimately have to choose a chandelier to go over the dining table, which is about 6' from the breakfast bar.  I don't want anything to be from a matching set, but I also want the chandelier and pendants to work together.

Here are some options I like:
Love these, but hubby thinks if we get these we might as well just have exposed naked bulbs hanging from the ceiling. I also like these because I feel like regardless of the chandelier we go with they will work together.

 These could potentially work, but I wouldn't know what finish to go with.

I like this style, but I can't find any in our price range.

Maybe these?

Traditional Kitchen by Narberth Architects & Building Designers Philip Ivory Architects

These are basic enough to work as well.

I like these vintage railroad pole pendants from Etsy.  They could be sophisticated in the right setting and have a story behind them.

Liking these globes too but I would want them a lot smaller and I doubt they exist in my price range...

Any ideas for us or places for us to look?!?!?

I've been doing the same search for island pendant lights for about 3 months now, and have come to the conclusion that the adjoining rooms and the style of the house should guide me more. I'm steering away from trendy & only going with 2 pendants rather than 3 so that the stove hood will not be blocked from view & we'll only have 2 more holes in the ceiling rather than 3. All the major lighting fixture companies seem to be putting their last year's models on sale now - the new ones are to come out in Feb. - or so I'm told. That may be another consideration. Let us know which ones you went with.

so many choices! I would steer clear from fabric shades ... harder to clean...
