This light is beautiful, but directions for installation terrible. I have bought a few from Lowes and they had pages of steps on how to assemble. I have a bolt left over from this lamp, I am sure it is important, but could not sort out how to assemble the shaft. Then as I was placing all the crystal loops on, I noticed you'll have to remove some to change a light bulb. How crazy. Then a friend stopped by and commented on how difficult that will be to dust and keep clean. So for now I love it, until I have to clean it or change the bulb.

First off it is a dark bronze.. it isn't the light bronze that is shown..second is barely shows the crystal attachments, which in real life are this gold finish. The light shines fine. I just think it looks cheap. I had ordered two of them for flush lighting in the hallway. I think that they are only worth $50. Unfortunately they were 145 and just a temporary situation until I find something more practical. I would not recommend this, especially if you have low ceilings which you will then be able to see its faults. I wish this site offered pictures to be posted so you can see what I'm talking about...
This is a very pretty light. The design around the edge is dark brown, not at all like the picture. Also, there are strings of glass beads that fasten to the bottom of the light fixture. You un-fasten these to replace the light bulbs. It also creates a little bit of shadowing when the light is on. I still really like it but it's not what I expected. I'd say it's fragile.

I have now ordered 4 of these for our main hallway and they are truly spectacular, goregous and sparkly. They look just like the much more expensive SB crystal chandeliers, but at a fraction of the cost. I would order them again. Note - you do have to place the crystals onto the mount. It doesn't arrive assembled. The crystals are connected 5 to a strand. But it is a most simple task so don't worry when you see twenty some strands of crystals. It is easy and well worth it to have a beautifully finished masterpiece!!
After a few minor glitches with installation and an additional 45 tedious minutes, stringing crystals, I have to admit the finished product is absolutely magnificent. A simply stunning piece that appears far more expensive than it actually is, it is the undisputed focal point of my newly renovated Master Bath. The fixture gives off adequate light and is deceptively brighter as the reflection of the crystals bounces off the ceiling. I am very happy with this fixture and would recommend it to anyone's who is shopping for a High-End look for Less!
The light fixture arrived promptly and was even better than what I expected. It really dresses up a room and adds that touch of class. Great fixture and easy installation. Looks wonderful installed. used 40 w bulbs and gives off plenty of light
Love it! We looked at lights at the big hardware stores and we found nothing we liked. I decided to look online instead and this light was much more of what we wanted and in our price range. I love this light in our room too it looks really good. We have Oil Rubbed Bronze all over our house and this light fits in with the rest. It is at bit thin in material, but for the cheap price it looks expensive and lovely for the price. Ours is also down low so you can see it, and we like it. They even give you gloves to handle it. It does shine a different spotted light around the room though, it is not a solid light of course because of the crystals, so keep that in mind. Thank you Overstock.com!
Great product. Was debating this against the ******* **** "Mia". The price on this won out and I wasn't disappointed. It does have the usual gold tone links between crystals but that fit my room so wasn't a problem for me. It looks even better when the light is on, the ceiling lights up like a star. It's a great addition to our family room.
