A+ For the "Big O" F for the product. I purchased this fixture for a small hall, I was hoping the chain was removable as it looks strange bit it is not. My main reason for the F is because of the quality of crystals, very poor. I honestly expected more but something I've learned is crystal with "lead" in it sparkles much more then whatever I was sent. Once assembled the fixture looks like extra/spare parts were used to put it together, the photos show a nice sparkly fixture. In person it just doesn't look right. Overall a lesson learned go with your gut because my husband said no and I said yes. Next time I will purchase with two yes's in the equation.
In May 2010, we installed one of these in our Chicago condo on Lake Shore Drive. Not a party goes by without several of our guests asking where we got this particular fixture. Our ceilings are low and it was very hard to find something that looked fun, but fit the space. I look at this fixture often and know that I would purchase it again if I were decorating again. I was willing to spend three times as much for this room's fixture and can't believe how lucky we were to find this awesome accent light at such a steal.
I don't mean to confuse, but I am conflicted about this light. I love, love, love it. It is gorgeous and casts the most beautiful patterns on the ceiling and walls. The negative part of my review is about the assembly. I believe there are 36 one and one-half inch crystal balls hanging from this light. I was expected to hang these fairly heavy real crystals with a one half inch piece of wire. I was half way through assembly when the crystal balls started dropping off in my lap. I would not even consider hanging this light in that fashion, as I believe someone would probably get knocked in the head with a falling crystal ball eventually. I couldn't bear to part with this beauty either, so out I went in search of a fastener that would safely set my mind at ease. What I came up with was a lightweight key ring that will hold each crystal up beautifully and safely. If you have a craft store nearby check out the jewelry making section and find some fastener that will "lock" in each crystal ball if you really love, love, love this light like I do and have to have it! I also purchased the matching dining room light, I had to stock up on key rings at my local craft store...
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? accurate color comparison
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of the product is excellent, however, the half inch metal included is totally inadequate for assembly.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Meh...
The wires on the crystals are pretty thin and weak, and also too short. If you were really worried about them, you could use thin plastic coated cable to tie on the crystals, or use silver colored twist ties.
After I got it installed, I haven't worried about the crystals falling off. It's beautiful!
I installed a new light switch which has a dimmer lever snuggled next to the on/off switch. I put in 60 watt bulbs, so at full brightness, this thing consumes 240 watts! It's great for trying to find something, but most of the time I have the dimmer set at 50% or less. Makes a beautiful mood light when set very low.
When set low, it consumes a modest amount of electricity, but doesn't put off that nasty green light you get from compact fluorescents.

All bulbs had to be added to the frame manually. However, once put together and hung up in our dining room it was an absolutely beautiful piece. Even my husband likes it!
Tip: we bought the recommend bulbs (not supplied), realized they were too bright, and installed a dimmer. Now it makes for a beautiful lighting in the dining room.
Well worth the money as well as the cost of a dimmer to be honest. I feel as if I have a unique piece of lighting not commonly seen in many homes!

When I opened the box, it looked like a puzzle! I hate puzzles and I don't have the patience to put things together...the whole thing comes for the owners delight in putting it together. The crystals arrive like eggs in a carton and I see that 4 are empty....I don't have the patience for this...tonight...maybe tomorrow...maybe my electrician would put itt together so add this charge to the price...it looks pretty and perfect for my foyer, but why the hell one has to put it together? I read the reviews but never thought it required so much assemply...and then I must deal with the instructions that never make any sense.
