Enjoy the tradition of a crystal chandelier without being locked into a classical design with this beautifully modern crystal ball chandelier. The fixture features spheres of sparkling crystals that delightfully reflect the bulbs light through a room....more
This is a tremendous value in lighting. It is very attractive and quality looking. If you have ever priced this type of contemporary fixture in your local lighting stores you will realize how much of a value this is. The crystals are real, not plastic. They light up beautifully from the bulbs and scatter sunlight into very unique patterns. You will find that you need a good deal of time to assemble all the crystals, as there are 31 of them and each has to be placed on a metal ring and then hung on the wires. NOT hard just takes some time. The end result is definitely worth the time and money. A+++++ product, without a doubt. One of the best purchases we have made at Overstock.com. Couldn't have been happier with the price and fixture.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. As good as any similar product at out local lighting stores. Crystals were perfect and very high end in appearance.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Just as described.
I wanted something to update a Lincoln Pk condo rehab, this was it! There was an old dated dining room light fixture, and this totally modernized the look, and gave a soft touch, so unique! I have it on a dimmer, and with the ligthts reflecting on the crystal it casts interesting shadows on the wall. Was not as difficult to put up as I originally thought. They included white gloves to install all the crystals.
Not for everyone, the look is very different.
This chandelier is absolutely gorgeous! The compliments from family, friends, and even the UPS delivery guy are positive. It hangs in my front entrance foyer. Everyone thinks that it is BEAUTIFUL. The size is accurate according to the site. It bigger than what the picture depicts. It looks way more tasteful and expensive than the actual price that I paid for this product. This is a must buy!

The crystals were mostly flawed in one way or another, most had bubbles or scratches very visible in the crystals. The crystals on the string are secured with visible little clamps, and aren't all in the correct position. These are the little hexagonal crystals but are only affixed to the wire by a hole on the edge. The final mounted light doesn't look identical to their image unless I am willing to go and fix each little crystal placement.
The Crystals come in different sizes to produce the effect here and aren't labeled even though they are often 4-6MM off in size, so there is a lot of effort in preparing to put the unit together. The large crystals come without the rings in them. So one must affix the jump rings to the crystals before assembling the light after hanging. The chrome coloured base of the fixture is see through the side up into the mounting box. I haven't found a solution to cosmetically improve this appearance yet. Due to the heat coming from the bulbs, we don't dare place anything on the inside of the chrome shielding to mask the mounting box.
The bulbs are the halogen twist types with the 2 dots at the base that you twist in. Only 2 of the bulbs that came with the product were in working order. These bulbs also produce a lot of heat and wasn't what I was hoping for. All the specifications listed were the wattage. I prefer using LED bulbs where possible.
I love the design, but I wouldn't even try to purchase the most expensive version by this manufacturer due to the number of flaws with this one item. The lighting effect is lovely if one is willing to live with all of the flaws, possibly acceptable for some. The light does point straight down (majority) but there is a dispersion of light effects due to the crystals.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colour is essentially the same as in the photo
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I would consider this to be a lower quality product. The crystals that came with the product had many inclusions (errors/bubbles/flaws in the crystals). The base is see through into the mounting box.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was accurate, just missing information.
Light arrived in a very timely manner. Crystals did not look cheap and were very beautiful. Light took a while to hang up. We added the crystals after the light was hung due to the weight of the crystals. Once it was up it looked spectacular. Very inexpensive chandelier for such an expensive look!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was more beautiful in person.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate!
I am very happy with the light fixture, especially for the price. as stated in the quality of the product line the metal light fixture could leave more to be desired.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It looks just as it appears in the photo.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the metal light fixture is kind of cheap looking and feeling. Since mine is mounted on a 20+ ceiling no one will be able to tell, but should it be placed lower it would be apparent.

If this fixture is mounted in the ceiling what is its total exposed length? The description states 31 inches total length of fixture. We have a low ceiling and like this fixture but concerned it hangs too low for the room. If we recess the top metal mesh junction box perhaps we can raise the height a few inches.hdlysmrs on Apr 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us hdlysmrs. The dimension is from the top of the chandelier to the bottom of the crystal balls. overstockcustomercare1 on May 1, 2013
I understand this is a flush mount fixture, why can this not be mounted on a slanted ceiling? Is it because of the direction of the bulbs or that the wires will hang unevenly?allybell on Jan 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The top base goes flush to the ceiling. If you were to hang on a slanted ceiling the strings of crystals would not hang properly.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 4, 2013
