An excellent crystal fixture for your home. This fixture features beautiful 100-percent crystal balls that capture and reflect the light. This chandelier is sure to lend a special atmosphere anywhere it is placed.
Fixture finish: Chrome
Balls are round clear faceted 40mm (golf-ball size)
Number of lights: Fourteen (14)
Requires Fourteen (14) 50W GU10 bulbs (included)
This fixture does need to be hard wired. Professional installation is recommended.
This crystal chandelier is a captivating fixture in the front foyer and our guests just couldn't cease admiring and staring at it. It takes about 2 hours between 2 people to get the crystals on the chandelier and it took another 5 hours for the electrician and myself to get the tangles removed after hanging it. Lesson learnt - hang the base first and get a tall ladder to hook the crystals to the base. Otherwise disentangling the threads by which the crystals hang is a harrowing and next breaking process. Overall a breathtaking piece.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fantastic
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
This is an absolutely spectacular chandelier. I can't stop looking at it, and guests are amazed. It has transformed our home. The crystals are gorgeous heavy glass. It's stunning.
Regarding assembly: all the little crystals are pre-strung on wires and the wires are pre-attached to the base in the correct configuration. They are in little bags to keep them from getting tangled during installation. You only need to attach the large crystals at the end of each wire, nearly 200 of them. FYI, the rings attaching the wires to the base were very wimpy and before installation I swapped them all for stainless split rings I picked up at Michaels. Time consuming, but I think worth it. Also, be aware the chandelier is very heavy, about 70 lbs, so you need fan-rated hardware to attach it to. Finally, fourteen 50W bulbs is very very bright. You would want to install a dimmer. Most dimmers are rated only for 600W but I found one rated for 1000W at Lowe's.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It's actually much prettier in person
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The aesthetic parts (crystals, base) are very high quality. The supporting parts and wire attachments are a little lacking in quality.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It is about 5" longer than described.
This is a pretty nice chandelier. It definitely stands out. Please note the following:
1) You need a really high ceiling for this to work out. It is located in our staircase where our stairs go up and pivot another direction. It looks nice but our ceiling is barely high enough and if you have even a tall-ish person (say over 6 ft tall), their head will hit the chandelier for us.
2) I had a professional electrician install this. He said that the mounting bracket was weak so he bought a new on and installed it via the attic.
3) Install the chandelier first without removing any of the bags tied up. DO NOT untie these bags until the chandelier is up and mounted. If you untie these bags, it will be a tangled mess.
4) Once mounted, you don't need the electrician anymore. Anyone can go in and untie a bag at a time and set up the round balls. This is very time consuming and will likely take about 4 hours or so to finish the whole thing. It is very tedious.
5) I would start from the middle and go out when installing the round balls. We started from the outside and it got tough towards the end when we had to reach i to untie.
6) Quality is ok but there were some corners cut. For example, we had around 4 cases where the length was not right. We had to fix this by swapping some rows to make sure that it is correct.
7) Wear the supplied gloves to screw in the light bulbs. The gloves are really small (and I have small hands) so they won't fit but at least they will cover your fingers.
All in all, this is a nice looking chandelier. It takes a lot of work to get this up and unless you know what you're doing, you should hire a pro. Even if you hire a pro, he will need 1-2 people to help hold this up while he mounts it, etc.
But when all of it is done and you turn it on....BAM! Money!!!
And yes, install a dimmer.
I am using this Gallery Modern Crystal 14-Light Chandelier for more than 6 months now and it looks awesome. It is a lot of work to install this beauty but well worth it. We hired a electrician to mount the top metal plateonly because we needed a huge ladder, our ceiling is very high. after electrician mounted it on ceiling we did the crystal's string our self because that part needs a lot of patience . And I recommend doing it by yourself as it will cost you less money (Electrician will charge their hourly pricy rate), also it has to be done correctly to get the right shape which your electrician might not care. Open on by one packet and hang the big crustal at the end that way it will not tangle. Also I replace the bulb with leds. Looks very beautiful and I get the compliments all the time!
a bit difficult to install because its a bit heavy !!! really its a 2 man job to install but i did it myself mcguyvering it to the bracket with plastic zip ties while i connect the wiring!!! if your not really well versed in doing electrical work i recommend hiring a professional to install it!! all together it took me 8Hrs to install. VERY TEDIOUS WORK hanging the crystal balls!!! But i can't stop looking at it its so GORG!!!!
I have looked for a chandelier for my great room for years. Had a hard time finding one large enough or bright enough for my
18ft high ceiling. Also, the prices were much more than I was willing to pay. When I saw this chandelier on overstock, I thought
it might work and based on the great reviews decided to buy. This chandelier has exceeded my expectations, It is beautiful!
Took hours to assemble, but really worth it!

Thank you for your interest in the Modern Crystal 14-Light Chandelier. Yes, the base plate lies flat against the ceiling.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 28, 2013
The brace that the base attaches to is a cross, and frankly, it is not quite strong enough for the weight of the chandelier. The arms of the brace do sag a bit so my chandelier is actually about an inch from the ceiling. In hind sight I wish I had gone to home depot and rigged up a beefier brace for it so that it would be flush. Still, it is a GORGEOUS chandelier.veryverypicky on Apr 13, 2013
I absolutely suggest getting a stronger brace. We hung it with the supplied brace, and it sagged more than 1 inch. So we went through the effort to rent scaffolding, take off all the crystals we had added, rebagged all the strands in ziplock bags, uninstalled the chandelier. We then got a metal plate the size of the cross, drilled holes, and then reinstalled the chandelier. Took 2 days. Worth it. Now it's flush and spectacular. Would have been easy had we done it right the first time.veryverypicky on Feb 9, 2014
The previous question asked how much this weighed, and overstock customer service said 29 lbs. This is NOT correct. I just received mine and it is 68 lbs(!). I believe overstock customer service confused lbs. with kgs.veryverypicky on Mar 11, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
