Beautiful lighting fixture except that the description said it called for standard bulbs and you have to actually buy G-9 bulbs and for 5 of them it cost $35 and about 8 hours of work because no one seems to carry them. So beware, an extra $35 for bulbs and a headache on your hands when you buy them. I wish I knew that before I bought this. Overall, quality is good and looks great.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
How is the quality of the product? Good
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? No. Said it takes standard bulbs and it does not. Takes very expensive rare bulbs. Impossible to find; waste of time looking for.
We put this up in our bedroom and it totally was the "cherry on top". It really makes the room. We painted our room light grey with a dark grey accent wall to use as our headboard. Our bedding is mostly white, as is our closet. When the light is on, I can't stop staring at it. We used 25 watt G9 bulbs and it is perfect for the bedroom. It casts beautiful patterns onto the walls. If you really like the look of this from the pic but have been hesitating - just go for it!!! My expectations were high and it still blew me away.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fantastic
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
there really weren't any instructions with this light. There were 2 pages that showed how to do the electrical installation in very general terms, but nothing regarding how to assemble the crystals. the larger strands with the balls on the end had hooks...I'm guessing at where to hang them. The single strand crystals have no hooks. I have no idea what to do with them.
The fixture itself is also not perfectly round, it's sort of warped. I'm hoping once it's up it wont be too noticeable...although I'm still trying to figure out how to attache the crystals before I can hang it.

I purchased these for a dining room. They appear nicely made, were easy to put together and complement the room so well. They provide just the right amount of sparkle and sophistication, while steel being modern, as we were looking for a crystal chandelier that is not too traditional or too modern. The shade is made of little threads wrapped vertically all around. That provides an interesting shadow on the walls when lit up. Could not be happier, especially for this price.
New master bathroom centerpiece and it sure is a beauty. It sparkles and shines like nothing else in my entire house. I couldn't love this more! Simple to add the strands and there are extra spots in the actual shade itself for additional strands, which I left out because the center strands with the crystals at the end are gorgeous enough!
What's not to love about this product? Everyone that walks into our bedroom looks right at this light and immediately comments. It's a great convo piece and a beautiful one at that. Putting this together was a little challenging and I am not a fan of the G9 bulbs, BUT despite those two little things, all the benefits completely outweigh the negatives. Now to find lamps for our nightstands with a similar feel...
