O.K. everyone. I had just completed a whole house renovation. The last step was to purchase and put in place exquisite lighting fixtures throughout many differently decorated rooms. Our taste is Crystal and a lot of glitzy BLING. I needed to complete my bedroom lighting requirements looking for an ART DECO PERIOD type of wall sconce with crystal. After feverishly looking all over the web and wholesale lighting distributors here in NYC, I landed upon this Crystorama Majestic Historic Brass 2-Light Wall Sconce on numerous websites. Overstock's price was indeed the best, but failed to tell you that these wall sconces are ALSO AVAILABLE with three (3) different quality levels of crystals. The one depicted on the website are just run-of-the -mill machine made crystals with AVERAGE LIGHT REFRACTION. (You can spend up to $600 + on Swarovski or Strauss crystals as an option for these Sconces.)
Now be prepared to do some work in these babies. Each large crystal pendant and crystal strand MUST BE APPLIED BY HAND! This involves hooking & threading soft, pliable little wires through microscopic holes. The instructions/directions don't help very much. If you manipulate these wires too much they will BREAK! Take your time and make sure YOU DON'T MISS ANY HOLES.OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO START ALL OVER AGAIN.
INSTALL THE LIGHT BULBS FIRST & TEST YOUR CONNECTIONS! They require CANDELABRA LIGHT BULBS 40 WATT MAX. I highly recommend the GE TRUE LIGHT Bulbs. They have a slight BLUE TINT to them, but they will put out True Clean Correct Light maximizing the Refraction the crystals will give off in the room. ( Little rainbows and shadows on the walls)
Last, put these units on a dimmer system!!! They look beautiful when dimmed to a warm lower setting. I use these as Background/Mood lighting & looks fabulous!! ( I used a Levitton Remote Controlled Dimmer........great toy!)
You will be surprised with a little ingenuity how you can MAX OUT the potential of these Sconces.............! Hope this will help anyone seriously looking to purchase these items.
