  • Nice light with a little elbow grease

    Ok. I am keeping this light and trying to make it work. It has pros and cons. Let me tell you the truth and you can decide if this is the light for you. WHAT IS THIS LIGHT MADE OF? This light is not ALL iron. The orb is. The chandelier parts are steel or tube metal or something. The light comes almost fully assembled. WHAT ABOUT THE CYRSTALS? The crystals are pretty, have a few with scratches, bubbles or other defects but are still pretty. I have plenty left over crystals to choose the best ones since you have one terrible diagram to look at to try to figure out placement of all the crystals. Still not a terriblle situation- I used my creative license and the crystal set up looks really good (and I have plenty of left overs for replacements). The attachments between crystals are the gold color. WHAT IS THE COLOR OF THIS LIGHT? Ok- this is where I am pretty disgusted. The light claimes it is "iron". I (wrongly) assumed an iron finish meant black wrought iron. Maybe it was a little rusty (that would have been great!). But no. The paint is a glossy black paint with glossy bright red speckles. Even the "candles". It is so tacky, so dollar store, so so ugly. (PS I love dollar stores too, so no offense). I tried my best to fix this situation by buying spray paint in rust color and textured. Sprayed the whole light. Only problem is the one glass piece on the light isn't removable. I can see through the glass and notice the horror show paint behind it. I am hoping it isn't too noticable to anyone else. Time will tell if this is a livable situation. OTHERWISE, now that it is a rusty looking light, it looks great, very very basically exact to a light on my favorite "restoration" site. That light cost over $2000.! So this is quite a savings (as long as the terrible original paint doesn't show through the glass). It's a mixed bag- good deal if you want to do the work and you compare the price to that other site, but 250 bucks is an aweful lot of money to spend on a light that you have to fix to make pretty

  • Great buy

    there is a lot of assembly, but it was worth it for the price. the crystals aren't actual crystal and the little hooks that hold them in place seem flimsy, but they hold fine and you can't tell when it's up in the ceiling space. there are a TON of extra parts, and the instructions could be better, I just went by the picture and made up some of the design.

  • Removing the crystals is not an option

    I love the style of this chandelier BUT I was hoping I would have the option to keep the crystals off for a more rustic look. I knew they required some assembly so I figured if I left them off, it would have the look I was going for. Well, the crystals themselves are detachable, but the crystal/glass collar at the top of the fixture is not... nor are the small crystal buttons on the ends of the chandelier arms. I was so bummed- I really wanted to love this fixture but I returned it without even hanging it. If you like the crystal look, this chandelier is a great option for the price point!!!!!

  • Orb Crystal Light

    I drooled over this light for months before I bought it. It kept going in and out of stock. When I would go to buy it, it would be sold out again! Finally I was able to buy it with only four remaining! This light shipped extremely fast and came in very big, well packaged box. I guess I didn't read the dimensions closely because the size of the light surprised me a bit. It was bigger than I expected, but still worked well. You might want to get a tape measure out and double check! : ) I have nine foot ceilings and we just shortened the chain so it looked good in our sitting room. This light is in a room right off my entry way and it gets a lot of attention. The light is bronze with very small reddish flecks. I didn't think it distracted from the beauty. Once its up, its a stunner! The crystals are attached with gold clips. I love gold and bronze, so this worked well for what I had planned. I am very happy with this light and the price. I can't afford the original designer one at almost ten times the price, so this is a great substitute!

  • Unique Light with Great PRice

    I was drawn to this light immediately due to the unique design for my entry foyer. The iron is strong, but not super heavy. Color of the light is closer to black than antique bronze. Beware that there is a lot of assembly with the crystals and there are confusing directions on how to string the crystals. In the end, I winged it and used my own design. The crystals are NOT Swarworski and the wire holding crystals together is gold and pretty flimsy, but when the light is hanging is it beautiful and no one is the wiser. Many. many compliments and 90% cheaper than the original "Foucault's orb" at a major design retailer. Great job again Overstock!

  • WLP

    I saw this globe chandelier in a consignment/antique store and fell in love but it was more than I wanted to spend. I began searching online and found a variety of sizes, metals, and especially prices for globe chandeliers. I decided to purchase this one following my research. It is not more black than bronze. It is large. It is pretty and makes a great focus piece in my dining room. We needed to rewire the electrical and purchase a longer chain as the cord and chain attached to the chandelier is not very long even with the 25 inch height of the chandelier and the customary 30 inches from the tabletop to the bottom of the light. It is very unique and fits my decorating style well.

  • Beautiful BUT...

    Unfortunately I have received to fixtures and both have been damaged. The 1st I did not even accept from UPS because I could hear the broken glass as the driver approached to deliver. Overstock was great and delivered the replacement expeditiously and this one has broken a broken crystal which is attached permanently to the fixture. I will be returning and look for a similar fixture. It just might be my bad luck.

  • Love this light

    This is an awesome light fixture. I had been looking at it for months. I read tons of the reviews and had a few concerns. None turned out to be issues at all. As far as the comments about it being black with red splotches. This is true and I was fully prepared to spray paint the fixture upon receiving it. However, I decided it was really not necessary. It is not offensive or super noticeable especially when hung. I just didn't think it was worth my time when it already looked great. Second, there was mention of gold fasteners for all the crystals but mine were all silver. There were a couple scratched crystals but there are so many it was not an issue at all. The light installed easily and crystals weren't too bad to put on. I had to wing it a little because the instructions weren't great. No big deal though. The fixture looks striking. I couldn't he happier.

  • We love it!

    My husband and I ordered this light fixture for our master bedroom. We had seen something very similar at a local lighting store which had far fewer crystals and cost $900! We are extremely pleased with this product and love it in our bedroom. The color is a very dark bronze, almost black.

  • Great Value for the Style

    The Good: This chandelier looks really nice from far away. I hung mine in the sun room, which has a 14-foot cathedral ceiling, and it looks amazing in there! It has the stylish, modern look I was going for, at a fraction of the cost you'd find it elsewhere. The Not-So-Good: If this chandelier has real crystals, they are the dullest, most glass-looking crystals ever made. When the light is on, there are zero prisms reflected from the crystals. I have a chandelier with real crystals in my eat-in kitchen (also purchased from Overstock!), and there's a HUGE difference in crystal quality. The "bronzed" finish is also questionable up close - it's really more of a black with red spots. That being said, you cannot beat the price point for this trendy chandelier style. High-end retail stores are selling this style of chandelier for at least five times the price you will pay for this one. I recommend sticking with this one for a two-story foyer or a room with a high ceiling. If you're going to hang it at eye level in a dining room, you may want to splurge for the higher end version.
