This light fixture is absolutely gorgeous! It is exactly what I wanted and is just as pictured. When the sunlight hits the cut crystals, brilliant prisims of light are cast about the walls. Simply stunning. Fortunately, I had a few helping hands here working at my house when the box arrived and I was able to recruit them to unpack, put together (this fixture comes in pieces and has to be 'built' as well as each individual cut crystal must be placed at each tip attached with a tiny wire thread and bent at the end once through the crystal to secure it in place) and install it in the foyer for me. Well, I didn't have to ask, they just did it. :)) And I LOVE IT! I highly recommend this chandelier. You get a big BANG for your buck with this purchase!
This is a great looking light fixture. Have had it over a year, no issues. It was a lit of a pain to put together as the crystals come separate from the branches ... each crystal leaf had to be attached tot he metal branches one at a time ... a bit tedious but once done, it looks very nice.
It was a bear to attach all the crystals . It took two people about two hours. The finish product is pretty but not s spectacular as I'd hoped. The yellow gold candles kind of throw it off. I think a different color would help. Otherwise it's a nice piece.
Gorgeous! Just like the much higher priced one at my face store for much less! It's a bit of work, but it's worth it. My tip: put crystals on each arm before assembling. Find a good movie and park yourself on the floor in front of the TV and add the crystals arm by arm then with a helper put it all together and then install. Worked perfectly! Love this chandelier! Love it!!!
I read through several reviews prior to and after ordering this chandelier and I am glad that I did, as those hard-won tips from other buyers were very helpful. It took over three hours to wire the crystals on each "branch", but you do pick up speed as you go along (by crystal #200, you have it down to a science!). I then hung the chandelier from a wardrobe rack and attached each "branch". This worked well. The main thing is to prepare yourself for a lengthy process of putting on the crystals. My husband and I watched back-to-back-to-back episodes of a favorite show while I put the crystals on. Bottom line, it looks very striking in our high-ceilinged dining room and we are pleased with it.
Exactly what the photo looks like, the chandelier is beautiful and creates very cool shadows. Tips for installation from previous reviewers were very helpful. Took the time to install the crystals on my own (put all crystals on arms first, then installed arms on base--took maybe about an hour), but definitely needed a second person to attach it to the light box. A great center piece.
This chandelier looks just like one I was saving up for from pottery barn, but when I found this one, I purchased it right away! I did spray paint the candle parts of the lights because they were a little yellow for my liking, but they look great now! Assembly is quite a task, since you have to attach each crystal by hand, but well worth it!!! Love it!
Set aside time to put this beauty up. Each crystal needs to be added and each branch secured, probably the reason for the great price. But it's totally worth it. Everyone who sees it has complemented how pretty it is. Great for traditional or rustic decor.
