The reason I say this fixture costed nothing is because it actually comes with 5 light bulbs. If you check big box stores for the prices of these bulbs, you know it's almost the price of the fixture itself. The fixture looks like it's worth 4 times the amount I paid. The mounting installation took 18 minutes (this is by a DYIer with almost no experience). Once the fixture is installed to the ceiling, the saga begins - the installation of the crystal pieces and the light bulb took 4 hours! The crystal pieces weren't hard to do, just very tedious since there were 84 strings (each requiring about 3 steps: hook crystal ball to string, hook wire hook to string, and hook to fixture). The light bulbs were very hard to screw on, it literally took like an hour! uggghhh. But if you could do it all by yourself then it's worth it. It would suck to have to pay someone $*** to install this baby.
I love the crystal bowl style chandeliers. I now have two of them in different sizes and another one in the same crystal-ball style. This is absolutely beautiful and it gives a surprising amount of light because the crystals reflect the light,almost like multiplying it. I hung this in a hallway leading to the guest quarters. Everyone admires and compliments it. It dresses up a dull little hallway nicely. I find myself turning the light one when I am in the hallway, weather the light is really needed or not because I want to enjoy its beauty. I have recommended the chandeliers to several people who have expressed interest.
Great little fixture. It is helpful to have two people to put it together.
