Add elegance to your dining room with this sophisticated chrome crystal chandelier. The light sparkles like diamonds through the clear crystals and crystal fleur de lis. The chandelier hangs perfectly to provide ambience to any dinner party....more
Instead of complaining about the way this chandelier arrived (which I really want to do), I've decided to try and be helpful. It seems that the reason it is so reasonably priced is because they saved a boatload on assembly and instruction manuals. In that it isn't assembled and there is no manual.
FIRST TIP- assemble the chandelier before you hang it! Take out all of the crystal strands and sort them into 4 piles:
Strands with 4 crystals
Strands with 5 crystals and rings on both ends
Strands with 5 crystals with a ring on one end only
Strands with 8 crystals
The 5 crystals with only one ring go in the center of the chandelier (around the light bulb). The 4 crystal strand swag from the top, 8 crystal strands swag from 2 middle levels, 5 crystal strand with 2 rings swag from bottom of chandelier.
Figuring this out took a painful amount of time and the assembly is tedious, but went much quicker on the 2nd one (I bought 2). Do not buy this chandy if you have arthritis and no one to assemble it for you. You know how hard it is to get a new key on a keyring? That is how each strand is assembled here.
It is a pretty chandelier for the price but I would hesitate to recommend it. I'm a chandelier junkie and have never seen one that needed this level of assembly. Maybe if I was prepared and there were instructions I would feel differently. Hope this helps!

This looks a lot better in person than it does in the picture on overstock.com. It looks giganto in the pics, but it's actually really petite and pretty. Yes, assembly is a little bit of a pain. The 22 links of 5 crystals go in the center hanging straight down. The links of 4 crystals go around the top, the links of 8 crystals go in the 2nd and 3rd rows, and the links of 5 crystals go on the bottom row. The long crystals hang from the fleur de lis, and the large ball goes at the bottom obviously. Now I feel I have done my service to humanity. :) Very nice sparkly addition to any room!
I put this chandelier in my small (4x4) vestibule, painted the walls black and the trim white, and it looks amazing! Very elegant. It took me a while to put this together as it did not come with directions, but studying the photograph here was a big help. Definitely lay all the crystals out and group them before you get started, it will save you a lot of time and trouble. The quality of construction is OK; I'm not worried about it falling apart or anything, and chances are no one is going to be inspecting it that closely anyway. I couldn't be more pleased with this light, especially for the price. A note about the bulb: I first used a regular white bulb but didn't like how visible it was. I thought a small, round clear one might be kind of neat, and the difference is unbelievable! It sparkles SO much more with the clear bulb, and the clear bulb kind of disappears to let you see just the fixture.
This compact but big-impact chandelier brightened up my entry hall perfectly. I was looking for chic sparkle that wasn't over-the-top and I got it at a great price. You'll receive the chrome frame with links of crystals in separate bags. Once you get the hang of attaching the links to the frame it's a piece of cake, but will take about 45 minutes. Installation is standard fixture replacement, all the parts you need are included (except the electrical engineer dad I had to speed the process). The dangling crystal ball is mesmerizing. These are actual crystals, not plastic, and they'll really sparkle in the light.
It looks great over the mastrer bath and is just what my wife wanted - not overly fancy, but neat. Putting it together took a bit of time for a guy with large thumbs and fingers, but I didn't have anything else to do anyway. For the money a great buy.
I really love the style of this chandelier! Looks very French. I was a bit disappointed with the size because I thought it would be a bit larger. But it is perfect for a small powder room, or a small nursery. The scale is too small for anything larger than a small room. As for the quality, I gave an "Average" because it's not made with high quality materials but it definitely looks high quality. A lot of people complained about having to put all the crystals on yourself but it really is not a big deal. I did it while watching TV and I was done before I knew it. Wish I could post a picture for you to see the scale and how incredible shiny the crystals are!
I guess the saying, you get what you pay for, is true. I ordered this for my master bath with high expectations because of the amazing reviews. I'm dumbfounded. It looks SO cheap. It is made out of thin metal that looks like my 2 year old could bend it.
I knew it would take time to put it together. As other reviewers said, the instructions are useless. I had to keep looking at the picture to get it right. It took about 30 minutes to put together completely. Also I did not see the fleur de lis in the picture until I squinted. Oh there it is. Not at all what I expected! It was only ***, really not a horrible price for a chandelier, so I'm debating if I should send it back, or take all the crystals off of it and try to spray paint it a brushed nickel to see if I can get it to look not so cheap. I'm baffled by all the good reviews!! I'll update if I decide to spray paint it.
Is this the same item as item #15529069??

Thank you for your question gledis1. No, they are not the same chandelier. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 31, 2014
I noticed that as well and when you look closely you can tell the less expensive chandelier does not have the fluer de lis or the same amount of crystals.wicklow2014 on May 14, 2014

I asked you if the 'optical' glass is real glass or is it plastic or acrylic? plastic and glass do not have lead in them. Again is it plastic or glass?moomoo0107 on Feb 26, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us, the "optical" glass is real glass. Please let me know if you have any further question.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 3, 2013
Real glass. It sparkles beautifully in the light and casts an interesting shadow on the ceiling at night. Love this chandelier. A candelabra bulb makes it especially beautiful.cmmaryland on Jun 4, 2013
You say the 'crystals' are made of 'optical' glass - is that actually glass or is it plastic or acrylic?moomoo0107 on Feb 26, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The crystals are optical glass, which is a special glass with very similar decorative effect as lead glass or lead crystal, but not the potential health risks of lead. It has minimal lead content. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 26, 2013

Can this chandelier be hung as a ceiling mount? ie with either one chain link or no chain links?moomoo0107 on Feb 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your inquiry. This chandelier comes with a round plate to cover the hole in the ceiling. With some modification you could hang it as close to the ceiling as possible. Unfortunately I am unable to comment on any type of modification to our products besides that. I apologize for the inconvenience.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 26, 2013
Both of the wires that are connected to this chandelier look exactly the same, they are not marked at all as to which one is live/hot and which is nuetral. How am I supposed to tell the difference in order to install it?1gmab on Feb 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The wires do not have the difference between the live wire and the neutral wire, they are almost the same.
You can choose to connect either one with the live wire from your own ceiling box, connect the remaining one with the neutral wire from the ceiling box.
If you have any further questions please let me know.

Yes, that should work well. Many of the reviews have been using in bathrooms and bedrooms.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 26, 2013
Yes, I use this in my daughter's nursery and it is plenty of light. I use a dimmer switch to adjust the amount of lighting because sometimes it is too bright.cmmaryland on Jun 4, 2013
