I bought 2 of these - one for the powder room and one for the master closet. Since the ceiling height couldn't accommodate a lower hanging chandelier, this ceiling mounted one worked perfectly. It was a great price for the quality and I get beautiful comments from everyone who sees it.
We paired two of these with the Round Shade Chrome and Crystal Wall Sconces and they look wonderful together. The sconces are on our bathroom mirror and these are on the ceiling of our master bath and also in the toilet room. They disperse the light and cast beautiful shadows on the ceiling. These are not intended for direct lighting purposes but they add a wonderful, romantic ambiance where you need mood lighting. A great buy!!
The silver rim at the top looks a bit chintzy when you first open it. I wasn't at all sure I would like it, but we installed it and wow! It looks like a fixture costing 4 times the money or more! The crystals are beautiful and the silver rim looks luxurious from the ground. I assure you that you will not regret this purchase. Don't expect super brightness from this, however, as it only holds 3 chandelier size light bulbs. Place it where mood is important, not brilliant light.
The instructions are general and not specific to this product, except for a diagram that shows the item -- but doesn't tell you how to put it together. The little gloves they sent were tiny, but a nice touch to keep the fingerprints off the chrome. I finally figured out how to put it together (big end of the crystal goes at the top and small end of the crystal attaches to the bottom hangy-down thing (technical term, I'm sure). I'm not sure how I'm going to change the lightbulbs without taking the entire thing apart. It's very tedious and arm-aching to put together over your head, but you really do need to install it into the ceiling before you start attaching the crystals; otherwise, you'll have quite a mess. It's flimsy and a pain to put up, but once it's up there, it's gorgeous!
