This was perfect for the look I was going for. I needed it to be be black so I painted it. Looks great. The "crystals" look nice enough. Took a little messing around to make everything look level. Happy that I bought this. Many people have asked me where I got it. I had to show my neighbor the site bc he didn't believe me that it was an Overstock find. He wants one too now.
I bought two of these to go over a 10 seat dining table. I couldn't be more pleased with them. They came with a variety of lengths of rods so I could set the height just perfectly. The diffraction of light on the ceiling is gorgeous. Our carpenter was very pleased with how light they were and how well made. Hanging the crystal strands was easy--just like hanging earrings--though it took a little while, and I had to do it twice for two chandeliers! (But really, they couldn't have been shipped any other way.) I have received rave reviews about them from visitors.
Beautiful light fixture was delivered promptly and was well packaged. The color of the fixture is a dark brown with a gold/bronze paint spatter which to me is very attractive. My boyfriend put it together and although it was tedious, all the crystals hung equally in length contrary to some reviews here. The install was easy and I love the little bit of glamour it adds to my dining area. Just beautiful when lit, the pictures don't do it justice. I would highly recommend this to someone looking for something a little different in their home decor.
Pay attention to the measurements because looking at the picture it almost looks like a little candlelight tear drop fixture. No, this thing is huge. Perfect above a large table. My dining room table is about 5 feet by 5feet square and wow, this was perfect above it. It has an organic feel with the touch of sparkle. Perfect for both me and my husbands style. I recommend to remove the last crystal on each strand to make them even to the rim. They stick out slightly being longer which to me looked strange. Once I adjusted it made such a great difference and looks so pretty. If you chose to do this, I recommend doing it before you hang each strand which to me was a little annoying and tedious but well worth it.
I bought 2 of these for my kitchen island which is rectangular (51in Wx 96in L). They fit perfectly for this size. Extremely elegant and beautiful. All the items inside were carefully wrapped, nothing broke. The material of the crystal inside is acrylic; although when I hold them, they felt very light, when you actually hang them, they look so much better. Definitely add a Wow factor to any kitchen, absolutely stunning! About installation: my electrician hang the light fixtures for me, but I did the crystal assembling myself, very easy, just a little time consuming. (About 45 minutes for both of them)
I hung this fixture in my master bathroom with 11ft ceilings over my soaking tub. It is "different" and brings out a more elegant "rustic" look I was going for. While I haven't done it yet, I think I am going to take away every other strand of crystal (not plastic like some reviews have said) to bring out more metal from cage. One of the sockets was funky. Hard to get bulb to thread into...not sure if it will hold up for the long haul but for the price can't beat it. This is not great quality but is definitely unique.
This looks great hung, up close, you will see the copper color with painted "gold flecks". Mine had a splotch of green (overstock switched the basket out for me). During the installation, one of the screws was stripped...had to get them to send a whole 2nd unit because they contacted the manufacture (in China) and the manufacturer sent the completely wrong part - after O and I outlined exactly what we needed, waste of time. The lights hang a bit cockeyed to the basket, and that affects the straightness of the glass dangle beads. This is mostly noticable if you look up from beneath it, the circle of beads is pretty far off from the basket circle opening at the bottom. Oh well! I had credit, and O points, otherwise the $XXX is too much to spend...
Love my new light fixture. It really does sparkle. Had to hang the crystal which is easy but takes some time. Difficult to get crystals to hang even but still looks good.Loved it so much I purchased a similar one for my entrance. Would definitely recommend to others. Order came within a few days, price was good. Color is not copper , it's more bronze, dark brown with gold highlights.
Overall, this is a great light with the perfect traditional elegance look. Im ordering a 3rd light for over our dinette table because they are so nice looking. The only difficulty we had was hanging it flush with the ceiling required us to take a trip to *** and get a shorter bolt.
My husband and I were able to quickly assemble the light fixture. We were both pleased at the quality of the crystals. They were packaged well so as to protect them and keep them straight. We had the fixture assembled and installed in a matter of minutes. It looks fantastic hanging over our soaking tub. I highly recommend this product.
The reviews were spot on! Lots of style, sparkle and presence without a weighty feel for my small dining room. I attached the crystal beads (glass, not plastic) without the straight hanger hooks, evened the bottom edge, and let them hang below the cage as designed. I like it!
I was looking for something that would be a bit eclectic in style, stand out and yet blend with the rest of my lighting and decor, and I have no regrets with this selection. You do have to attach the crystal strands which is a bit tedious but really not difficult. I did it with one wrist in a cast. I did have a split ring tool and needle nose pliers to make it easier but they're not critical.
We moved into an existing home and changed out all of the fixtures. They were very dated. We chose these pendants for the aged metal "bird cage" appearance and the "bling" with the stringed crystal. They are easy to install- my husband did it while my kids hooked the crystals. They hang over our island in the kitchen and look absolutely stunning-especially when lit. We have them on a dimmer which adds an extra element. They were bigger than what they appeared in the photo but they are the right scale for the space. Everyone comments on them and for the price, they are an excellent value!
