I purchased this chandelier last week and had it professionally installed today. Overall, I am thrilled with the product. As others have stated, everything has to be put together. Knowing this I was totally prepared to spend some time on it. It took 2 of us about an hour to put together the chandelier. Be careful when asesmbling the pieces- you don't want to strip a screw. Also, it is a little tough to fix some of the bolts if you make a mistake close to the end. It takes a lot of patience to correct it. Hanging the crystals took about half an hour. The instructions are not very useful. I referred to the overstock website picture and zoomed in a few times to make sure I placed the crystals in the correct spot. I loved that there were extra crystals included. Some of my crystals had deep scratches and I was able to swap them out. Everything was packed very well and it shipped very quickly. I recommend this item- looks beautiful and is $100 cheaper than the higher end home store chandelier.
We just moved and left our old *** chandelier behind. I was going to reorder, then found the identical lamp on overstock for $120 less. They look identical, however the big difference is overstock has to be fully assembled. The *** lamp comes in one piece of solid rod-iron. The overstock lamp is a hollow, therefore a much lighter duplicate. Once assembled you can not tell the difference, but it did take all day to assembly. If you are "handy".. go with the overstock lamp. If not, it may not be worth the cost save.

I LOVE THIS CHANDELIER! I am so incredibly happy with this purchase. The chandelier arrived fairly quickly and totally transformed our dining room. While it was a bit tedious to put together, the finished product was worth the effort. It came with extra crystals though mine were all in perfect shape:) I almost bought the same one from ****** ***--good thing I saw it here!!!
This piece is yet another steal form Overstock. Looks just like fancy catalog store item, but half the price. Had it for a year, no issues. Arrived missing some hardware, but husband purchased at hardware store. Even with the extra effort, he is happy with the purchase. Big and striking, looks great through our front window as you walk up to our door. With lampshades off, the bulbs look very blue when turned off, so I keep lampshades on. None have burned out yet, so I haven't bothered to replace them with clear bulbs yet. Will do eventually.

I couldn't be happier with this chandelier. It appears to be a knockoff of a PB chandelier - and it is spot on. Our neighbors have the brand one, and ours looks exactly like it - for a third of the price. Beautiful.

Would recommend this chandelier- I almost purchased the same one from ------- ---- last month until I saw this one. It does require assembly of every single piece including wiring and attaching each of the six arms to the base, its not impossible it just takes some time (1-2hrs). It does look very nice in my dining room and now I think it was worth the work! Some crystals were damaged and scratched but comes with many extras to replace, so overall worth it for the price!!! I saved $100+ on this item!
Once assembled, the chandelier is beautiful. The assembly of the chandelier was a real nuisance. The tiny nuts needed to attach the 6 arms were very difficult to attach, both because of limited space and because the supplied wrench was a very poor fit. I purchased 2 of these chandeliers, and in unwrapping the crystals in the first package, discovered that 4 of the more delicate crystals had arrived broken. This left me with 2 very obvious empty spaces on the assembled chandelier. (The chandelier shipped with spare crystals.) However, the second chandelier arrived with much better packaging and had no broken crystals, so the spares in that box completed the first chandelier. If you have the patience to spend on assembly, this chandelier is a great buy.
Beautiful chandelier--had to assemble it myself--it wasn't difficult, but was time consuming. A couple of the crystals were broken, but it came with spare's. This chandelier was significantly more expensive at the retailer and the shades had to be purchased separately, so I was very happy with the price thru Overstock.
Very nice looking chandelier. All components great quality. Only hassle is the amount of assembly. I'm pretty handly and it took a 1-1.5 hrs to put everything together. It isn't a matter of it being complicated, or difficult, only time-consuming. Have a movie on, and put together.Other nice thing is that the packaging includes a few extra crystals of each time so that you won't have a problem if anything is damaged in shipping (one on mine), or if you break anything while hanging it (I broke another).Definately no regrets and would buy again.
Purchased this to hang over my kitchen table. Love it! Can be used with or without the shades and crystals. I hung it just as pictured and it adds just the right amount of class to the space. Love it and would purchase again. Great quality wrought iron piece.
I bought this chandelier based on the Overstock reviews and it was a great decision. My electrician wasn't thrilled to assemble it at first, but when I came home, he was happily hanging the heavy crystals on the finished light! It was the perfect addition to our open concept dining area. The original order was damaged in shipping and Overstock handled that so easily by sending a new one in just a few days. I love that we can change the look of the light with the shades and the crystals add just enough sparkle without being overwhelming.
Built a home for the first time in my life and was looking for something to go in my country chic kitchen. I wanted so badly the one from PB but just could not let myself spend 400 dollars on a chandelier. I took a chance and looked on overstock. I couldn't believe it when I saw it.Same exact one! And so much cheaper. Took 15 minutes to put together. Looks like a million bucks in my kitchen dining area above my new white country table.
Believe the other reviews when they say the set up of this lamp takes time and patience. It looks beautiful now that its up but many curse words were used in the process of getting it up on the ceiling. It looks expensive and really changed the way my dinning room looked but in a great way. Has so much character and charm. I would recommend to my friends and family to buy this chandelier but would recommend someone with lots of patience and a knowledge in electrical wiring as there are lots of random wires that need to be re-cut and organized. Well worth the bad mood my husband was in that day.
I was apprehensive about purchasing this item after reading some of the reviews about the assembling of this chandelier, but I'm so glad I made the purchase! It looks beautiful and I put it together on my own in less than an hour. I had it professionally installed and he took less than ten minutes to hang it.
