the fabrique is shimmery, and sparkles when the light is on. It is a gorgeous chandelier, and definitely is a focal point in my dining area. Provides great light and when installed with a dimmer can be adjusted. Hight can be adjusted during an installation.
Not very high quality materials for the price. After about a month the white translucent backing behind the chrome permanently turned a dark brown color. This left the chandelier looking dated and dirty. I have read this happening to other buyers only some were able to get a replacement of some sorts. I was denied myself.
