The product title is very misleading. It is said to be crystal, but in fact is just acrylic. They are very pretty, but a bit pricy for acrylic. I bought 3 packs under the assumption they would actually be crystal. Very disappointed :(
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Nice quality, but acrylic not crystal
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not at all
These knobs are pretty and look nice. Some glass knobs look cheap when you look at the inside where the screw is. These do not, so I was pleased when I first took them out of the box. However, as I was installing them on a console table, I realized that the screws are too long, and there are no washers included. So, If you are installing them on a thinner drawer (about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch) you will either need shorter screws or a small bolt or washer to use up some space in order to get a tight fit. For the price, I think they should include the bolts or washers, so the buyer can have options on what they want to install them onto, without having to go to the store.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Yes
These knobs are so pretty. I ordered them for the main bath room vanity that guests would use. This also happens to be the bath used by my four year old who commented, "Mommy gave me the gems for my bathroom drawers!" Very pretty accent.

I read that these did NOT look cheap and that you couldn't see through the crystal to see how they were attached to the base. WRONG! They are a plastic crystal with a machined hole in the bottom that is glued to a stub on the base. You can clearly see that they are glued together when looking through the crystal.
Now don't get me wrong, that doesn't particularly bother me. But... when attempting to fasten them to the door, you have to hold the knob and turn the screw on the back. But torqueing the screw causes the glue to break loose so you have to reglue your brand new knobs together.
In the end, they look ok but there's nothing spectacular about them. Combine that with being rather cheaply made and I'd say you can probably find better.
Also, one last thing. We ordered 5 packs of 5. (25 total knobs). Overstock sent is 5 knobs. Yes, 5 knobs. We had to have them resend 20 more knobs, which they willingly and painlessly did but we had to wait another week to get them and finish the project. You would think that SOMEBODY at Overstock would have double checked the order before it went out. It clearly said 5 packs of 5 knobs.
I ordered these knobs to bring a little sparkle to my entryway and guest bedroom bifold closet doors. They are nice, and I like them better than the shiny brass knobs that were there before, but they don't have the sparkle that real crystal would have....they are also not as heavy or substantial feeling. The oil rubbed bronze base is nice and coordinates with all my other updates, however...so they work. And, in fairness, I read the complete description and the reviews so I did know that they were made of lucite when I ordered them...so I'm not complaining---I just would have preferred real crystal . In any event, the price was right....and I figured I could always use them on a dresser as drawer pulls if they didn't look right on the closet doors...I may yet do that....
These are fine, but I can only give 4 stars because they are not crystal but acrylic/lucite.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looks the same.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is good.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? These are made from Lucite not crystal, so the name of the product is a little deceiving...maybe it should have read "crystal-like"?.
Overstock shipped these promptly. I had one knob that was cracked and overstock sent me a replacement. I have been happy with overstock's customer service so far. The description on the knobs is not accurate. These are not glass! I do like the knobs and they are very pretty. I may not have ordered them knowing they were acrylic. However, now that I have them, I will be keeping them. The price was ok for acrylic, glass knobs are not as "fancy" and usually run more money. Overall, I like them. I would recommend them as long as you know they are acrylic, not glass! : )
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good color, oil rubbed bronze and "crystal'
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is ok for acrylic knobs.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? NOT accurate. I emailed overstock and explianed these are acrylic. The description needs to change!
