This item requires a bit of assembly and patience (and as the other reviewers said, you really need to examine the box closely to ensure you have gotten all the parts/crystals out!) but once it was put together, my husband and I had a fairly easy time installing it and it looks beautiful and much more expensive than it was. I think it was totally worth the assembly time!
I love this light it is very bright and beautiful. I get plenty of good compliments about it. But I will say that some of the crystals were just floating in the box or connected to other crystals so if u think you are missing some look around.
This chandelier is exactly what I was looking for and I would buy it again. That being said, assembly was very interesting. Good thing that we are handy and were able to figure things out from the internet picture alone, because the assembly instructions were useless. The metal mesh drum shade is very striking!!! Looks great in my Master Bathroom. Crystals are real cut glass and add lots of sparkle from the light given from the 5 bulbs. Looks much more expensive than what it cost.
