I brought beauty and opulence into my home at an affordable price. This mini chandelier radiates rainbow prisms of light everywhere. When I opened the box and saw all the parts to assemble, you could have heard my "GULP" in Tahiti. When I looked at the instructions and took a deep breath, it was actually really fun to assemble. I just put a show on TV and finished it without a problem.. The manufacturers were very considerate as they give you plenty of extra parts for those unforeseen circumstances that always seem to adversely effect the timely assembly of my projects. I own the 3 and 4 light versions of this style and the 3 light is perfect for a small front door area or a narrow hallway, while the larger one is amazing over my dining room table. Ask yourself, wouldn't it be nice to own a thousand mini rainbows?

I needed new lighting for my butler's pantry and decided that I wanted something smaill and sparkly. The ceiling is kinda low so I knew I needed something that was flush mount but I found this and I'm so glad I did!
It was easy to install and is an absolute stunner! It's perfect in form and function. Also the photo does this piece no justice. If you order it, you will LOVE it!

This chandelier looks perfect in our master bedroom - super-sparkly and very bright (a dimmer switch is recommended). The flush mount makes it just right for a room with a lower ceiling or where you won't have a table or other piece of furniture under it to guard against head whacks. My tall husband has full head clearance under this chandelier even in our home with it's relatively low 8 foot ceilings. The petite size of the chandelier works very well in a smaller room or area - I could see this looking lovely in a walk in closet or small entryway, as well as in a bedroom.
Installation is a bit tedious, but not terribly difficult. My relatively handy husband was able to put the hardware up in about 15 minutes with a little help from me (I just held it up while he hooked things together). Installing the crystals took a long time (about 40 minutes) because there were so many to hang, but I was expecting this and really didn't mind. I would recommend working out from the middle and putting in the candelabra bulbs after putting the middle drop and the first (innermost) tier. The chandelier was packaged well (actually, the crystals were packed a little too well - they were a pain to get out!), but the included installation diagram is a little bit confusing - as long as you alternate the tear shape and round dangles, you'll be all set. Also, there were no instructions for the electrical portion of the installation, so if you aren't too handy, keep this in mind.
Overall, this is a beautiful fixture that looks even prettier than the picture. I had overlooked it for some time, but kept discovering the chandeliers I liked were far too big or low hanging for my space. I'm so glad I decided to take a chance on this one!

MY HUSBAND AND I PUT THIS LIGHT TOGETHER THIS EVENING..IT'S IN OUR UPSTAIRS HALLWAY WITH 2 OTHER CHANDELIERS I PURCHASED FROM OVERSTOCK. AS THEY SAID IN THE 70'S 'IT'S SUPER BALLSY'....IT TOOK LESS THAN AN HOUR TO ASSEMBLE AND GET IT UP ON THE CEILING.THE DIRECTIONS ARE ONE DIMENSIONAL, BUT STILL WE FIGURED IT OUT ONCE WE STARTED PUTTING ALL THE CRYSTALS ON. THIS WOULD ALSO LOOK NICE IN A GIRLS ROOM, HALLWAY OR A BATHROOM. THE PRICE IS UNBEATABLE.

I agree with all of the rave reviews. This is a gorgeous, small chandelier, perfect for lower ceilings. Adds such a nice touch of elegance to any room. I installed this in the master closet and another version in the master bath. Definitely read the other reviews for the tips on installing. I left the boxes in the middle of the floor for 2 weeks and eyed them nervously as I walked by, afraid to tackle them. Once I got started it was so simple that I realized I could have done it earlier. I had someone else hang the base and then I installed all of the crystal strands. The strands are packaged nicely and grouped by type. You do have to attach the large round crystals to about half of the strands, but the connectors are easy to use. Just start in the middle and work your way out alternating the outer two rows of A, A1 and B, B1. Every other one gets a round crystal at the end. There are two pages to the installation guide and pictures that seem to contradict each other.

Let's be honest, there is no easy way to clean a chandelier. It can be tedious work, but the rewards are worth it. First, you will want to dust it on a regular basis, then when you absolutely have to, it will need to be clean. How often you want to thoroughly clean it, will be up to you. Please remember, do it safely!!!! You will need to set up alternative lighting (since you won't be able to use the chandelier for lighting while you're cleaning it), because you will need to
turn off the chandelier's power at the wall switch. Make sure you tell everyone in the home/work what you are doing and the light cannot be on.
Cover any upward-pointing bulbs with sandwich bags. Secure the bags with rubber bands.
Place a drop cloth below the chandelier.
Save money buy mixing your own solution of one part isopropyl alcohol or ammonia in three parts distilled water. Put some solution in a spray bottle.
Spray every part of the fixture with the cleanser, avoiding wires and other electrical components.
Allow the crystals to drip-dry. If your chandelier is too dirty for this drip-cleaning method, you'll have to hand-wash each individual crystal with the cleaning solution.
Remove the plastic bags from the lights once the crystals have dried, and wipe down light wells and other noncrystal parts with a soft cloth dipped in the cleanser.
Allow the entire fixture to dry overnight before turning its power back on.
This will take the better part of the day, it is time consuming. So set aside some time, grab a friend, husband or child to help. Good Luck!!!!! Thank you.
