The quality and beauty of this chandelier exceeded my expectations. I looked at many chandeliers, both online and in person, before deciding on this one. In the end, my decision was based in large part on the other two reviews. I agree with them 100%. I am very particular and I like high end goods, and I am in love with this chandelier! Follow the tips offered by one of the other reviewers for installing the crystals; it made the task fun and easy. The quality of the crystal is superb and I love the combination of crystals with the bronze tones of the metal. I too am using it in a master bedroom and it elevates the room to the level of a suite at the Four Seasons Hotel. What more can I say? C'est Magnifique!
The chandelier looks exactly the same as what you see on the picture. The metal part is of high quality and matches our decor nicely. Overall the chandelier looks stunning and we spend more time in our living room than over. A few days ago we visited a local lighting store and saw various grades of crystals including some very nice ones. we think that the tear drop crystals of this chandelier are just glass, so you get what you pay for. we are going to buy some nice crystals to redress the chandelier.
I am an interior designer, and wanted a rustic refined look to a bedroom. This was paired with a scrolled medallion. It is so beautiful, I pinch myself how pretty it really is. You will not be disappointed with this light. The crystals look expensive, and the bronze make the crystals stand out. On other websites this beauty goes for over $900. Great price for such an expensive light.
This is a beautiful chandelier - it is really lovely in person - and it was not difficult to put together. My husband assembled the metal parts and I hung the crystals. It took me about 2 hours to unwrap each crystal, lay them out in groups, and hang them. The diagram is very easy to read and makes crystal placement easy. I suggest suspending the fixture from a hook - I hung mine on a pot rack - to hang the crystals so that you can walk around the chandelier as you place them. This also keeps the chandelier at a good eye level height so that your arms don't get tired reaching up too high. If you keep all of the same crystals together and label them in groups you will have no problem figuring out what goes where. The metal fastenings are very easy to crimp and I suggest making sure that the pieces that come already hooked together are securely fastened. All of the crystals appeared to be in perfect condition - no nicks or scratches. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it. If you like it in the picture, you'll love it in person.
