This chandelier is a beautiful thing! The crystals are weighty and crystal clear. It looks special in my dressing room. The installation was easy and did not take a lot of time. The chandelier gives off a glow that is reminiscence of old Hollywood glamour. I love it!
I love it!! The crystals are actual glass crystal. Meaning they aren't plastic or something else. They are heavy and clear. They aren't as sparkling as Swarovski or other "high end" crystal BUT they still emit a sparkle nevertheless. The overall effect does NOT look cheap. It looks much more expensive than the listed price. . All in all, very happy and would purchase again
We purchased two of these, one for the master closet and one for the master powder room. They put off great light, however they get hot to the touch. Overall they are stunning but we always turn them off right away because of the heat.
I purchased one of these Chandeliers to put in the area of hallway between my guest rooms, outside of the bathroom. It had a builders grade light. I couldn't be more pleased. It is elegant and gives just the right amount of bling without overdoing it. I liked it so well I ordered two more for my hallway which also had two builders grade lights. I have had many positive comments, my husband put them up and loves them as well. These are priced very well and the quality is excellent. They even send an extra crystal and yes these are glass not plastic.
As this fixture sits close to the ceiling and has (30) golfball size crystal balls, be aware that in conjunction with the 4 halogen bulbs (that are very bright,) the crystals will throw rainbow prisims all over the walls and ceiling on light paint. I installed this fixture in a small bathroom as part of a full home renovation project. I intentionally painted the walls in a nearly flat, dark eggplant paint color, knowing the beautiful effect it would create using this fixture. Rather than primary (rainbow) color prisms, we achieved a broad jewel toned metallic effect, cast across the top of the walls rather than tight traditional crystal prisms, that was nothing less than impressive in a small powder room that was loved by both men and women realtors. I will defiantly use this style fixture again if presented the opportunity. It lends balance to bold or modern room designs with a touch of soft, feminine energy. It would also be very sweet in a little girls room on a dimmer, compatible with halogen bulbs. This elegant little fixture is weighty. I would make sure a well-installed or reinforced ceiling box is present as a precaution. Hint: when installing the frame and hanging the crystals, wear some thin, clean white cotton gloves. It will save you time and stress trying to clean fingerprints off the shiny chrome rails and crystals after its on the ceiling.
THe reviews are all right on this one...it's amazing. I bought 4, as I am rennovating my house. They are a nice touch of modern meets classic and cast an absolutely gorgeous light. The bulbs are specialty and are hard to find and very expensive. However, they are so beautiful I don't care. Really make my bedrooms look elegant. If you are thinking of buying these, do it fast. They rock!
I bought two of these, one for a kitchen and one for my hallway. They are the perfect light for an area where you want something elegant and bright but not over the top. I would most definitely recommend these lights. Got both of mine on sale and feel it was a great value.
