As with all the other reviews, I LOVE this light! It is hanging proudly in my kitchen, which is just a little unexpected delight when people walk in. I do want to let you know that to add the crystal is easier while it is hanging, starting with the lower level. **Do yourself a favor, and simply put the "pin" through the crystal, and straight through to the wrung, THEN bend down. Easy. I actually redid mine, because I originally hung them like hanging earrings, and I didn't like the look. Plus they made a LOT more noise! And lastly, I found that using those little white surgical gloves (w/o the powder) easier then the cotton gloves, b/c I was afraid the crystal would slip out of my hand. I hope this info helps the next person! :D
After reading all the reviews on this lighting fixture, I decided to make the leap and purchase the product. As others have described, my chandelier arrived rapidly, but with 5 crystals broken and the light fixture dented all along the top. The dents actually appeared to be a manufacturer damage as they were all painted over. I immediately contacted the customer service at Overstock.com thinking that they would replace the fixture as others have mentioned was done for them. They however informed me that they "ran out" of the fixture parts and could not replace it, nor could I return the chandelier and receive a new one in exchange. Overall, the frame of the fixture is cheap looking; the crystals are fairly nice and cover most of the fixture so if the cheap frame doesn't bother you, then I think it is decent for the price, but nothing to brag about. It looks fairly similar to a light fixture at RH that sells for much more, but the quality doesn't compare. You get the look for less with this chandelier, but you sacrifice quality. I am pretty disappointed in this purchase and expected more from O's customer service.
I bought many light fixtures recently for our new house but this is by far my favorite (and one of the least expensive). The light itself is a show-stopper - it has bling with style to spare. The reason I am giving it four stars is because the quality of the materials - when I received my light both the main metal light fixture as well as a number of the crystals were broken. I worked through the o customer service (they were very helpful) and got the necessary replacements such that in the end they basically had sent me the parts for two complete chandeliers so that I could construct a single complete light fixture. For me, the savings were well worth the hassle but just be careful to inspect the package immediately upon receipt so that you can start the process of getting replacement parts.
This chandelier is absolutely beautiful!!!! It looks just like the one in the very expensive catalogue store for a fraction of the cost. Installing the crystals is a bit tedious, but I just did it for a few minutes at a time when I had time, and it was done very quickly. You should try to have someone install it before you put the crystals on, and I would do the bottom row first, then the middle row and then the top row. Some of the crystals were cracked at the top where they attach to the chandelier, but I just put those crystals on a lower tier where the attachment was hidden, and kept the perfect crystals for the top tier. I am so in love with this chandelier, and I am so glad I did not spend a fortune on it. BTW....even if you decide to buy an expensive chandelier from an expensive store...you STILL have to put the crystals on yourself. So you may as well just buy an identical one here on overstock!!

We set up the light a few weeks ago. It looks stunning in our living room. We wanted the one from R...H... but the price was way too expensive, plus we have bought sconces from them for our bathroom and the quality doesn't match the high prices... A few of the crystals weren't perfect but i got replacements right away at not extra cost. The light needs two people to be hang and setting the crystals can be a bit of work but it is worth every second :). We love the beauty plus the fact that it is 2k less in price :D
I have no idea why they don't include about 12 extra crystals & 50 extra pins (see previous reviews). However. This is seriously gorgeous & throws a lot of light when using Satco 40 watt CLEAR GLOBE lights (twisty candelabra base). Tried LEDs but they were too long. I found that the "simple" version of hanging the crystals did not have the elegance that the more complicated version did (insert pin into crystal from the back, bend upwards, insert pin in chandelier hole [from front] & bend down). I'd organize the crystals by length FROM THE DRILL HOLE & use the weirdest on the bottom tier (no one will see anything but the ends) and work my way up. My contractor says everyone wants RH on the cheap. This is it. (He was so impressed)
Wow!!!, I drooled over this fixture at *********** ********, but I wasn't going to spend $$$$ on it. To be able to purchase it on Overstock for under $$$ was outstanding. It is very time consuming to put the prisms on but worth the effort, it took about 5 hours, but I was anal retentive and wiped down every single piece with a micro fiber towel. You don't have to do that. Use the white gloves that come in the box as you will smudge the prisms if you don't. Buy this light fixture and you will not be disappointed. It is FABULOUS!!!
This fixture is the epitome of more bang for your buck! Don't overthink it, just go for it. Doon't be overwhelmed by the task of assembling - it really isn't that difficult. It took longer to unwrap the individual crystals then to put it all together. Tip: wear a shirt with breast pockets to minimize times up and down the ladder to get more crystals:) Here's a link to photos of the fixture hanging in our home. We couldn't be more pleased with the style, quality and value. *
I am thrilled with this chandelier. I had seen a similar chandelier hanging in the lobby of my sister's building, which left an impression on me, so when I went looking on Overstock for new fixtures and saw this style, I immediately ordered it. I found out later that hers is the original RH but this looks just as amazing. (Of course I did not do a side-by-side comparison but I can honestly say that after having renovated my whole apartment, this is my favorite thing.) Anyway, I can't comment on installation, as I wasn't there when the electrician/contractor hung it. The hanging of the crystals was time-consuming, but not difficult to do. (It's actually therapeutic if you're dealing with the stress of a renovation!) Just start at the bottom like others have advised. I do see the pins on top sticking out, but probably nobody else would notice and I have yet to attempt to adjust them. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. P.S. None of my crystals was chipped or broken. The hole on one was completely closed up but was not a problem as there was an extra crystal included.
Bought this for an update in our dining room and boy did it fit the bill! It looks simply stunning! Took a little time to hang the crystals and some of them came broken, but they sent replacements out very quickly. I saw a 5 layer version of this at Pottery Barn for two thousand dollars. Love my three tier just as well and didn't pay nearly as much!
This is a beautiful chandelier. It looks like an RH chandelier. The crystals are high quality and none were scratched. It assembled easily. I'm using it in my dining room and it's quite a statement piece. This was an excellent purchase.
This chandelier is absolutely gorgeous! It looks just as good as the one from a major retailer that costs around $2300. We installed it in our dining room and it adds just the right amount of modern chic to our otherwise traditional décor. Gives off plenty of light. Didn't take too long too hang each of the crystals, which all arrived unbroken. Because of all of the crystal it is heavy, so hang the fixture first, then apply the crystals. Also, it' needs proper support, so if you don't know how to do that yourself hire an electrician to hang it. Couldn't be happier with this purchase!
I have been looking for the right chandelier for my DR. I had tried three before this one. This one makes a statement the others couldn't. It adds the sophistication and elegance I was looking for and in a more masculine way for a crystal chandelier.
