I love my chandelier. It's the perfect size for a dressing area; even a small one. Boy, it WAS crazy trying to figure out how to put it together! But I finally got it. Here's a tip: there are several areas where the crystal chains come together; Don't try to hook them all through the one drill hole. Put one ring through the hole and then hang the others off the ring that you've put through the drilled hole. Get it? Good luck! It was worth it. The chandelier is darling.
This advice will hopefully be helpful to the next person who installs this. The crystals are all organized in packets, and the "item number" section in the direction box corresponds to each packet of crystals. Where the crystals are located on the chandelier is shown on the diagram below the "item section" box. Once you realize that, it's pretty easy to match the crystal packets with the numbers, after you count all the pieces (don't mix them up, as that'll be more confusing).
THERE IS AN ERROR in the instructions diagram, which is annoying, because it's already not easy to follow. The error is in the 6-7 region where it shows crystals hanging where the light should be. Obviously you can't hang crystals where the light goes. Those sets of crystals ( the mini 2-piece crystals that act as a hanging chain for the larger teardrops that are packaged with it) hang on the outermost swirls directly lateral to the light bulb area. In the diagram, there are no crystals hanging on those swirls, so you'll know where you're supposed to hang them, if you can see the only swirls in the diagram that are empty and closest to the bulb area. You can also somewhat see it in the photo online (here), but it's very hard to distinguish between crystals, as they mostly look like a large mass. Hopefully that makes sense.
My only constructive criticism for Overstock.com would be for an english speaker to re-write these instructions, for the error to be removed and for the directions to be more thorough. Other than that, it's a lovely chandelier once you can figure out how to put it together. It's not impossible! I looked at the picture online & studied the one-page instructions until I figured it out. Of course, it helps to count the holes on the chandelier too. If a girl can do it, YOU can do it too. :)
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was exactly like picture (not sure why people are saying it's black, but maybe they changed the color for me:)
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality & beautiful crystals

We just love this chandelier. We placed it in our dining room and it is perfect over our table. It offers glamour without being overdone. The crystals come in separate packaging and not attached. We attached the crystals after hanging the fixture. The directions offer some but little help in how or where to attach them. We simply opened all of the packaging and laid out all the crystals. You will find that you have both five strand (some with hanging loops on both ends and some with one hanging loop on one end) and six strand crystals, along with 1 major crystal and several teardrop crystals, as well as a number of two strand crystals (with a loop on each end). Look at the picture online and the directions and put on the crystals you are sure of first. Then, by process of elimination, you will be able to place the others. Obviously the very large crystal hangs on the very bottom. The five strand crystals (with a hanging loop on one end) hang around the lightbulb and dangle straight down. Then proceeding top to bottom. First, a teardrop hangs on each swirl at the top of the fixture. Next, hang the two strand crystals in the space between the two fixture loops and attach a teardrop to the center of each. *NOTE: When connecting one crystal to another always connect via a loop and not to the fixture itself. The next layer is the most complicated. Hang a teardrop crystal on every swirl loop remaining on the fixture. Then drape a five strand (with loops on both ends)between the open spaces (teardrop to teardrop) on the next layer. Last but not least, you will have six strand crystals remaining. They drape from the teardrop crystals with the five strand crystals that you attached in the last layer to the very bottom teardrop crystals (which circle the largest crystal at the bottom). Hope this somehow helps. You'll figure it out. We did.

I ordered two of these from Overstock; one last year and one a week ago. The one I received last year is identical to the one in the picture and beautiful. The one I just received is a completely different color, it's a light brown, almost gold. The ring on top of the fixture that the chain clips too is round, not like the picture. It is obviously a cheaper copy of the original fixture. Not a bad fixture, just not the one in the picture. Disappointing.
My husband put together the chandelier and installed it. The instructions are hard to follow because the author of them clearly uses English as a second language! :-) Beautiful and is just the right size and scale to go over the tub in the my master bath. Looks like I paid a lot more for this and love the unique shape.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
How is the quality of the product? excellent
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
As other reviewers said, reasonably difficult to follow the instructions to piece together, but definitely doable with some trial and error and patience. Perhaps different than other reviewers, I would say that this chandelier looks on the cheap side. No bad, but definitely is not a stand in for a higher priced chandelier. I wouldn't pay more than I did for it. The crystals are absolutely not crystal, but are glass (not plastic, as other reviewers have mentioned), however they don't have the heft/weight of even normal glass crystals. The frame on the flimsy side. I have purchased other chandeliers from Overstock for around this price which were definitely of higher quality.
All that said, it is still nice looking, with nice style. It looks as pictured.
These are better than I thought they would be. They are larger and more beautiful than the picture. They were a brown color that looks like an oil rubbed bronze and was exactly what I wanted.
The crystals are a total pain to put on but I did it.
I bought 4 of these to go above my kitchen island and we just hung them tonight and they are so beautiful. Great quality and a great price.
Once it was finished, I loved this chandelier - but those instructions ARE tough to follow & putting each crystal piece together was pretty annoying. Finished result is great but definitely a bit tedious.
Thank you for your question diba7. The size of the ceiling plate is 5.12 inches w x 0.98 inches h. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 29, 2013
Reading the reviews and someone said they ordered 2 - one last year and one this year. The one this year is a completely different color and the ring connecting at the top is round and not the same shape as in the picture.

It is the same color as the light and is raised off the ceiling like an inverted bowl about 2 inches. Typical plate except not a flat one.babykikiyaya on May 31, 2013
The shipping weight for this item is 6 pounds, so the actual product would be slightly less than that. overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 10, 2012
Was thinking about plugging this in an outlet and putting two hooks in the ceiling draping the chain so it hangs center of my bay window. Can this be done? Is there a plug on the end of the cord?pleasecalldrhorder1147 on Sep 16, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
