This did take a little bit of effort to attach all the crystals, but it was well worth the work. This is a very substantial, shiny and elegant light! It leaves beautiful leaf silhouettes on your walls and also leaves mini rainbows everywhere when the sun shines on it. We used 4- 60 watt chandelier bulbs and they are VERY bright so you might want to either use a dimmer switch or put in four 40 watt bulbs instead. You won't be disappointed with this beauty! One thing to note though, the two parts that screw together were hard to twist on. It almost felt stripped but we realized it was just paint overspray that got into the grooves. We used a little nail polish remover on the inside with a q-tip, then we put a little Vaseline over the grooves and it went together. No biggie, but just wanted to point it out in case anyone else had the same issue.
While it was time consuming to assemble, I will be taking this chandelier with me when we leave this house. It is gorgeous and leaves such pretty light patters across the ceiling. The kids love to find the rainbows it reflects at meal times. It is the perfect light to blend the antique and contemporary furniture in my home.

I love this light! It looks gorgeous in our bedroom. Please be aware that you have to attach each crystal to the light... and there are a lot of them! To attach the crystal, you have to slide a thin straight pin through a small hole in the metal arm and also through a hole in the crystal. Then, you need to bend the small pin so that the crystal stays in place. The problem is that there was not enough room to fit the crystal into most of the slots. That meant bending a lot of metal so that the crystal would fit into place. This was a MAJOR PAIN and took a couple of HOURS! On top of that, two of the arms had missing holes so the crystal could not be installed. I called the company and they sent two new arms from China. It took a long time and the arms were a bit of a pain to install. The light looks so beautiful, but I am not sure if it was worth all the hassle or not

I wanted something very special for our newly decorated bedroom. When I saw this I fell in love.When I received it I was thrilled. it looks like I brought the outside in. The crystals make beautiful delicate leaves. My husband is thrilled to. The quality of this product was wonderful also. I have purchased several items from the O, and I am very pleased. This is a beautiful, beautiful chandelier.

This is beautiful and at an amazing price. Saw one almost identical for over $X,XXX. XX. There was a part missing and the company immediately sent it to me overnight express, can't say enough about their customer service and their pride in their products. I would definitely buy this again. Setting it up and putting it together was not at all difficult. Looks very elegant in the dining room.
I bought several lights from overstock for our reno project, an old victorian. This one is my favorite!!! Everyone who sees it says how pretty it is. I had gotten 2 lights from Lowes, but ended up returning them because they were cheap looking, made of plastic and glass. this one is good quality and so pretty. No big deal to put together, after one or 2 crystals you get the hang of it. Def. worth the trouble.
I really like the look of this and get compliments on it too. The silver finish is the only thing I don't like, but I'm redecorating that room and I'm hoping to get a pale blue paint color that will disguise the finish a little more than it is now. Another poster wrote about using the pins to attach the crystals. That wasn't such a big deal once I realized that if you bend the right piece, it's much easier. I also used a tiny set of pliers so my hands didn't get all torn up. Once up, with dimmers and clear bulbs, it really does look like a winter wonderland. I am going to love it once I get the right undertones in the room (no warm colors with this one!). Just remember though, there are a lot of pieces to dust and no smoorth edges. So a Swiffer leaves tiny pieces behind and wool leaves fibers behind that must then be picked out one by one. Not sure yet the best way to dust this on a regular basis.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The silver finish is not really silver. It almost looks plastic
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems decent.
I purchased these for the master bedroom of the home I just built. I put two of them in the ceiling and they are perfect. When off, the sun shines through them and projects tiny rainbows on the ceiling. When on, the ambiance is lovely.
I love this light in the bronze version and have purchased two of them - we renovate houses and these look fabulous in smaller dining rooms. The silver version is equally charming, but the finish is definitely a "spray painted" silver finish...it will still look great lit up, but I would love a chrome version of this light, in lieu.
Perfect for my guest bath. I have not hung it yet but I am sure that will go well. Assembly of the crystal leaves may be a little tiring if I wait until it is hung but I may try doing it before. Standing on a ladder and looking up doesn't help my neck. It is a lovely lighting fixture! I would encourage anyone to buy this one!
