Looking for a Ceiling Medallion with a large diameter hole

In our home we have two interesting light fixtures consisting of draped crystal pendants. They stand out a bit from the bare and somewhat boring ceiling. We'd like to add a ceiling medallion to create a little more visual balance but I can't find one with a large enough hole. Has anyone had any luck finding a medallion with a hole diameter of 12" or so?
