I bought this chandelier to go over my bathtub. For that purpose it is perfect:. It llooks beautiful as long as you don't look for long or too closely. I was not terribly particular about the details that woud bother me if I chose to put it in my dining room. For example, the crystals do not line up horizontally and it looks inexpensive. It was easy to assemble and came with extra crystals and rings. I would recommend it for use in an area where quality and craftsmanship are not necessary for the personality of the intended decor.
This fixture has that "wow" effect! It is absolutely stunning. It is small but large enough for my tiny 10X12 dining room. The installation was about 2 hours including reading the instructions, taking out all the parts and putting it up including all the parts. The install was done by a qualified family electrician. My tip:install the 3 light sockets and the entire fixture to the ceiling first then add the dripping crystals after the install is done. Saves time and frustration. I so love it and I got all the parts with extra incase you want to get creative and add more bling to your perfect light. Thank you, thank you Overstock for the killer price and gorgeous lighting fixture!
While the assembly instructions are written for the clairvoyant, the end result is quite nice. Close examination of some of the metal parts of the fixture reveals not-quite-stellar quality, but since it just hangs there, I anticipate no issues. The crystal quality far exceeded my expectations, and once installed, it really looks excellent. Quite happy with the purchase.
After reading all the reviews I got it and couln't be happier! Putting it together wasn't bad. Hung it from a ladder with thick cable wire and sat on the floor in front of the TV. Started from the inside out and it took me 45 minutes. Now i'm just waitnig for my husband to figure out how to hang it since I want it for our bathroom but we have recessed light. I bought a conversion kit but that will not work. He said he will figure it out but that I have to patient. It's been 2 weeks and my beautiful chandelier is still haning on a closet rod!

I shopped around for a while. The price at Overstock was amazing compared to other places. I was a bit skeptical because of the price but O.M.G this chandelier is AMAZING and it looks better in person. I was afraid that it might be to bling and cheap looking but it was just right..I used it in my bedroom for a shabby Chic/Elegant look. The room in 10x12 feet and it looks just right. I have gotten many compliments on this.

This chandy is more beautiful than the pic. I purchased it for my guest room and it stands out and adds an air of luxury and chic elegance to the overall look. As other buyers have mentioned, the instructions kinda suck, but assembly comes together eventually. I added a dimmer on my chandy so my guests can be able to soften the light a bit. Overall I'm very satisfied.

I have this hanging in my 14x14ft dining room. The chandelier is a perfect scale for the room. This is a great selection for someone that likes the sparkle a chandelier brings to a room but not the overly formal tone they can impress. The chandelier needed to be assembled but it was a pretty simple task.
I bought this chandelier a few months ago, and I still love the look in my master bedroom. The only real complaint is that it is a bit too shiny silver for my decor. I wish it came in a more toned-down finish with the same style and beautiful crystals. I got rid of the busy pattern of shadows it splashes on the walls by using frosted bulbs. This made a world of difference, changing it from a "tweener" type of lighting fixture to a sophisticated light fixture. I like it very much.
pros: FAST delivery, many compliments, looks fabulous, well packaged, extra parts cons: the mounting stem was too short and we had to get another at the hardware store to install it, otherwise installation was easy though time consuming.
I ordered this not knowing what I was going to do with it or where I was going to put it. After 6 months I am finally redoing my bedroom and i decided to use this chandelier in my room. IT IS TO DIE FOR! It sparkles and looks so decadent up. It is my main light source in my bedroom and everyone that walks into my room cannot believe how breathtaking it is! it was a little tedious to assemble as it is shipped in a thousand pieces but the work pays off. The crystals are packed so well that there wasn't a single flaw. Even my parents (who complain about everything) absolutely loved when they saw it and couldn't believe i paid so little money for it. They literally made me show them the website to confirm how much I paid! All in all, a wonderful buy and excellent addition to my decor.
For the money this hanging chandelier is well worth it. It does look much more expensive than it costs and is a very cute accent to any room (office, dining, bedroom ,bathroom). Several things you should be aware of: 1-the 60+ hanging crystal links need to be attached by hand and take a while 2-the crystals seem to be a combination of plastic and glass, not crystal 3-the instructions are terrible (basically a picture with no written explanation) so you need to be good at deciphering what vague pictures mean. Despite the difficulties in putting it together it is a lovely piece that is well worth it.
I used this chandelier in the hall way. Love it! Contemporary flare. Sparkles when lit. Every piece has to be assembled. It's not hard just time consuming. I love the fact that they give you many many extra pieces of crystal. Real crystal. I searched and searched for a chandelier just like this but i didn't want to spend a lot of money. I am so happy i bought this.
I purchased this chandelier for my dining area and it is perfect. It hangs near a french door that get plenty of light shining through and the crystals project a beautiful rainbow of colors on the wall when the light hits them. I would recommend this chandelier for any room. I added a chandelier to my bathroom after this one. It was easy to put together and my husband installed it.
