I really wanted an empire style crystal chandelier but couldn't spend 1000s of dollars. This is a good compromise. The hold coloring was too gold and made it look cheap, so I applied a dark wax to take it down some and make it look more sophisticated. Overall, I would recommend it.
This product is glamorous and elegant. My only concern is that the manufacturer did not consider that some crystals could break during packaging and shipment. Please, add one extra set of crystals for each group. Otherwise I am very pleased with the light.
The item arrived about 5 days after the order. The box is small for the size of the item (lots of parts for assembly). The item is solid and has a good tone of rich gold. The gold appears to be plated on a alternate metal that is solid and strong. If the item is scratched during assembly the underlaying metal shows up and is not gold. I am a handy person yet this took me about 3 and 1/12 hours to install and assemble. After hanging the light works well and this piece looks very expensive. The crystals are of good quality. The gold plating could be more durable.

Product arrived looking as advertised. I did not bother installing it all by myself. I assembled the product and then had an electrician install it. Could have used a longer chain and wire. The chain & wire which came with product was not long enough for my high ceiling. Had to buy more from HD which did not exactly match.
A few of the crystals were broken but enough extras wee included to complete the two chandeliers. My friend paid * times this price for a very small chanelier from another place. Highly recommended! 5 stars for Overstock. Came through again as the best.******
This is a great light. The gold is a little too bright and would add value if it was muted a little. The directions for putting the light together are really bad. It is easier to just look at the picture and then put the fixture together without trying to follow the directions. I love this light fixture and adds a lot of elegance to our dining room.
I received the order after 5 days. The order that came in was perfect. There were no missing pieces and no damage. Actually the shipper did a good job in adding a few additional strands which in my case was perfect because one of the strands was missing a piece thus making it shorter than the rest of the strand -). I took me about 2 hours to assemble the chandelier and hooked it up. It looks very good once everything was completed! The 18-inch chain is perfect for a 10 foot ceiling house. If the ceiling is more than 10 feet, then it may warrant additional chain length. For the money, I would rate that this is an excellent product for home use. It looks very elegant and good to look at. I highly recommend it.
