This piece looks amazing in our dining room. I couldn't decide between this and the smaller version, but am so glad I opted to spring for this- the scale is great for our 9' ceilings. It took about 2 hours to install, and I would recommend having 2 people, but I managed quite well with the help of my 2 preschool daughters (unpacking and handing me about 75 crystal balls that needed to be hung. I definitely recommend this piece.

I was enamored with the picture of this chandelier on this site BUT when it arrived and I installed it, my jaw dropped in awe of how GORGEOUS it looks in my formal living room with my new piano. Everyone who enters my home now just says "Wow" I had my handyman install the base fixture and then I clipped on the lights which took about a hour (uninterrupted) and it was well worth the effort. This is the 1st review of a product I have ever written BUT I had to given how satisfied I am with this fixture. It looks like it cost $$$$ NOT $$$. Need I say more!

pretty standard on the installation. the only thing is the 3-lights is not flush with the housing, they stick out, but it's not a deal breaker. overall im satisfied with it.

After reading most of the reviews on this chandelier, I hesitated for just a second then placed the order. My husband read the reviews after the product arrived and before we opened the package. He was ready to send it back rather than go through the long assembly and installation process. I couldn't allow him to do that sine I was already awed by this glimmering beauty. We contacted a very patient electrician and he installed it without any problems. It took about an hour or so to complete the installation. All the pieces were there, including an extra crystal ball. The crystals are real, they are heavy and sparkle like diamonds when the light hits them. Also, it provides a lot of light, much more than I anticipated since the light bulbs are on the top. The fixture is absolutely beautiful in our remodeled, contemporary dining room. There is a contemporary multi-piece mirror hanging in the same room. The crystals reflect on the mirror surfaces and add even more glimmer and sparkle as well as light to the room. I have sent pictures of the room and chandelier to friends in several different countries and everyone is now asking me where we got this beautiful chandelier. I am absolutely happy with this product. I just purchased 2 more chandeliers from the same series to hang in the master bathroom and the front entryway. Perhaps I am going a bit too far with this, but if so I can replace them later. For now I will just enjoy all this glitter and bling.
This light looks stunning in my staircase hallway, have already received many compliments! W-O-W and STUNNING are the words that come out. It has much presence without taking up visual space making the hallway appear spacious and grand, worth every penny!

This is a very unique chandelier that catches your eye when you enter our home. It gives the illusion that the "globe" is floating in the air. I agree with the other reviewers that it is time consuming to attach the 80 balls to the strings.

Be prepared to spend some time installing this! Took over 2 hours to install with me and my husband (and he is pretty handy). I sat there and put the crystal balls through the little loops and he hung them on more little hoops. My fingernails chipped and cracked. The actual base needs improvement. You can see exactly where they welded the parts together and some of the metal is bent. The bulbs that it came with are pretty dim, definitely need brighter lights. One review said they didn't give him enough loops but we got extras. However, there were 4 broken crystals and we called the 1-800 number that came inside the box and they send us new crystals with no problem, arrived in 4 days. For the price, it is a really nice chandelier once installed but not sure that I would go through the whole process again.
This fixture is beautifully designed. I love pulling up to the house when the light is on because of it's Wow Factor. If you're looking for a contemporary look that makes for great eye candy, "This is it!" The lighting is in my great room, positioned right above the sofa. Assemblying was very simple and didn't consume much of my time. My husband had an issue with the base because it looks like a typical wall mount fixture. My rebuttal was that the fixture serves a great purpose which beams the lights downward onto the crystals that BLINGS like a girls best friend :) If you're nit-picky, you may notice it. I'm a perfectionist who loves art and have a great eye for anything asthetic, I LOVE IT! You can't go wrong with this investment, especially for the price. You're friends will swear that you paid at least triple the amount.

light is beautiful but very hard to assemble. we had it installed in a two story hallway and it took three hours. the crystals make it to heavy to install them before the fixture and electric is complete. therefore the electrician was on the ladder the entire time. the silver metal plate has plastic to protect it but the installer had to remove it before it was installed. the plate is covered in finger prints which being overhead two stories i can not remove. one of the sockets didn't work after he got it up and luckily we had an electrician that could rewire it so it did not have to be returned. so it cost more to install than we every suspected. the installation cost more than the light itself. love the light but be aware of the problems associated with it.
Words can't explain the beauty of this crystal chandelier. Delivery was fast, got in 4 days and 3 out of 6 bulbs were missing but overstock people were awesome and credited me $$ for missing bulbs when they couldn't send some. It took me some time to figure out what to do so we can hang on crystals (80) and don't hit our head while installing in your ceiling. You get around 80 crystals packed in separate small box and they are real glass not plastic with fine rings like you get with key chains. To my experience you should 1st ring all the crystals and keep aside in a box and hang them later to the small metal threads hanging with a loop at the ends from the main metal base once it is fixed in the ceiling. Just thread in these rings attached to the crystal balls to the loop one by one and it will save your head banging with those glass crystals and won't be heavy to carry up high to your ceiling. Whenever my friends visit us they just don't forget to praise this beautiful chandelier. Extremely happy with my purchase.
