I've purchased gallery chandelier fixtures in the past and the crystals were real lead crystal and like super sparkly prisms. These are listed as real crystal, but even if they are, they look more like glass. They don't sparkle or prism. That said the fixture is substantial and nice overall. Just don't buy this if sparkle is your #1 goal.
I was building a new home and at the end of financial rope purchasing lighting. I wanted a metal and crystal chandelier in my bathroom ( A french spin to my decorating) and could not find anything decent for under ***. I found this on overstock and thought I would try it...it is perfect. I love it! It is of great quality and everyone who sees it, loves it!
This was our very first online purchase. Therefore, we were hesitant to make the purchase but took the risk. We love the chandelier. We had difficulty assembling the crystal balls on the chandelier but customer service was quick and prompt. I called and they had emailed the instructions right away since I was missing a page of the instructions on placing the crystal balls. In fact, the rep waited with me online until I had we put some up to ensure the instructions were correct. Thank you overstock.com
I was looking for something sparkly that would blend with my iron stair railing and other fixtures. This has the perfect mix of black "iron" and bling. The globes shimmer in the sunlight. The 4 uncovered bulbs put off a lot of light. Plenty for my eat in kitchen. I almost like it better with the light OFF because you get a better view of the crystal globes. You DO have to put this together yourself, but it was super simple. LOVE this light. I would buy another one if I had a place to put it!
