We purchased this pendant light to place over our kitchen sink, alone with the matching larger light fixture in our kitchen. This light adds the perfect amount of "bedazzle" while remaining casual for everyday use. When the light is on, the crystals cast iridescent light onto the walls- it's beautiful! Crystals come pre-attached, aside from the most lower ones which dangle. I opted not to even put them on to make the fixture more casual. It's perfect for the price, easy to assemble and hang, highly recommend! We're extremely pleased!!
I was pleasantly surprised when this arrived and all except the bottom hanging 'crystals' were already attached. Based on other reviews, I thought they'd all need to be attached. I had to tighten a few up, but it wasn't labor intensive at all. I will install this item with a downrod covering the cord. Our local home improvement store sells the down rods and the cord is so ugly (and distractingly silver) that I think it would detract from the pretty light if I didn't cover it up.
I really like the pendants, they look beautiful. The cord that extends from the ceiling to the light is fairly hideous. It shows you just what it looks like in the photo, so I shouldn't have been surprised. I'm just not sure why they wouldn't use a chain or down rod to clean it up a bit.
These are pretty. I bought them in late 2011 and I have 2 over my kitchen bar. I have LED 60 w bulbs in them currently and my problem is that the Crystals are made of plastic and I can't clean them. I have tried many things but I still see a build up of dust and dullness on the crystals. I am replacing these just a few years later with some tiffany pendants but hey! loved them for a while and a girl just changes her mind it's a birth right for women!!!
Bought three of these pendants and two of the larger matching fixtures for our kitchen remodel. Three pendants will go over 10 foot x 5 foot island and two larger fixtues will hang over the 10 foot reclaimed wood table. I can't wait until these are installed! They are gorgeous and look a lot more expensive than they are. I bought these as a substitute for a fixture I fell in love with at Restoration Hardware ($3,000 each!!) and I couldn't be happier. Very similar look for a fraction of the cost. These are very dark bronze (almost black).
