I am very pleasantly surprised with the quality of this piece. It is a great buy for the money. I was looking for a little bring for a rental apartment and this piece fit the bill. The crystals are a nice quality. The crystals will take a while to attach but that is typical of any piece with hanging crystals. The drop on this piece can be adjusted easily. I also purchased the Tee chandelier to co-ordinate with this piece in an adjacent space.
Just like the other reviews mentioned, this fixture is just beautiful, the picture does not do it justice, so if you are on the fence about, make the purchase, you will be pleasantly surprised....and you will not find a better price anywhere, I used a ##% percent off coupon, which made this a steal for me! One reviewer said his wife cried tears of joy when she saw this installed, yes, it looks that good. I was ready to cry a few times during the install ( I am a handy female and did it myself ) because the instructions are a frustrating Xerox copy of something that looks really, really complicated, that isn't. Someone got list in translation. Anyhow, after a few futile attempts I figured it out, and up it went. There are three 11 or 12 inch rods that screw together, so you can choose the length you need. I used two, and then had to shorten the wire, which was no big deal. I kept the third rod in case I want to move this to some other location at some point. You can always splice more wire in. Finally, attaching the crystals did take some time, but was simple. At that point, I had just been on the ladder too long and was tired of looking at it. Again, I will say, this should only take about 20 minutes to install, and maybe 15 minutes for the crystals. Today, with a fresh perspective, I am very happy with the fixture, it's just dazzling and looks more expensive than it is. It was an excellent purchase and I am delighted!
The chandelier is beautiful. I hung it in my spare bedroom that I use for a dressing room and I could not be happier. Be sure to use a clear bulb; it makes all the difference. The crystals cast light all over the room and leaves a beautiful design on the ceiling. It was easy to put together. I love it!
