Gives off great light & just the right amount of bling. Looks great above our table in the eat-in kitchen! The only reasons I'm giving it 4 stars & not 5 is because the silver lining in the inside of the shade is a little flawed in one spot, but we turned the light so you can't really see it. Still love it, great quality for the price!
This item was PERFECT, it boast class and elegance. It was exactly what I wanted, affordable in price, and easy to assemble. I had not purchased online before for home décor. This was my first experience. I would and have recommended others.
Once this is put up you appreciate it more, the directions are not very clear especially where to place the crystals, but eventually you figure it out. I hung this up all by myself (husband not handy), and made a few mistakes but was able to correct it and start over, this is a very light weight fixture and not made of heavy metal, thankfully once up you only see the gleaming crystals. It's hung in my daughters powder room area, I can't wait till she comes home from college to see the surprise, she's always wanted a black and white bedroom and this looks very pretty and gives off lovely reflective light.
The black & chrome looks great in our foyer, which also has hints of black and chrome throughout. We decided to use some of the chain, so there is a nice reflection on the ceiling when the light is on. It does require some time (maybe 15 minutes) to hand the crystals onto the lamp. Be mindful to not scratch the chrome when putting in the crystals. Other than that, with some electrical skills, anyone can hang this beautiful chandelier.
The chandelier arrived undamaged and all the peices were in the box. It took a few tries to get it installed, as we did it ourselves, but we managed. There is plenty of extra wire - so if you have high ceilings, this will work. Our ceiling is standard size, so we had to tuck a lot of wire underneath. The glass crystals were beautiful and easy to attach. We had to buy special chandelier lights, but they throw off plenty of light. The inside of the shade is metallic. so light reflects and illuminates the table underneath. Have gotten many compiments on the light.
I read several reviews before I decided to purchase this chandelier. I Absolutely Love this lighting fixture. Very classy, not to big or to small. The crystals dance and capture the light perfectly. I would have paid more for this chandelier. The picture doesn't do it justice.
