Besides the fact there was a piece broken, which I need to resolve with Overstock, it is beautiful. We took our time getting the crystals assembled and installed so it wasn't too much of a headache, shall I say that is what my daughter did. If you are meticulous or OCD, assembly of the crystals won't be too bad. Installation went smoothly for my husband, I think it was one of his easiest installs thus far.
THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL CHANDELIER I'M LOOKING AT IT IN MY DINING ROOM AS I TYPE, LOVE IT! THE SHADES ARE BLACK BUT ARE SHEER WITH AN OFF WHITE MATERIAL UNDERNEATH. THIS IS WHAT MAKES IT GIVE OFF A LOT OF LIGHT. ITS CLASSY LOOKING AND MAKES A STATEMENT! SO THE ONLY REASON I DIDN'T GIVE IT 5 STARS IS I WISH IT WAS MADE A LITTLE BETTER, QUALITY IS NOT GREAT,(HOWEVER THE COST REFLECTS THAT) THE UPSIDE TO THAT IS ONLY I KNOW AS I PUT IT TOGETHER. LOOKING AT IT YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW. LASTLY HAVE A LOT OF PATIENCE BECAUSE YOU WILL SPEND A LOT OF TIME PUTTING THESE CRYSTALS ON THE LIGHT WITH LITTLE TINY SILVER RINGS. OVERALL ITS HANGING AND DONE. LOOKS BEAUTIFUL AND FOR THE PRICE YOU CAN'T GO WRONG.
