This is not a perfect replica, but it is still gorgeous. Yes, it takes a while to put together, but two of us had no trouble putting it up and getting it to hang properly. I don't like how it's set up to have the wire show in the middle of the three rods (you can't see it in the picture, but it's set up to come up right in through the center, and they really should have run it through one of the rods). We hooked the wire through one of the holes where the rods attach and ran it along one of the rods so it's not as obvious (just make sure you don't run it across one of the light bulbs!). It may not be perfect, but it's truly unbeatable for the price.
We saw a smaller version of this same chandelier for double the price at a store here in town. It was fairly easy to hang and the end result is just beautiful! Received it fast and can't beat free shipping. Definitely recommend this chandelier. In love!
The quality of this chandelier is not great but once you hang it, it looks great. I priced a similar looking chandelier which was about 5 times as expensive at two other stores (the quality of those chandeliers was better but I don't think the price was worth it). It takes a while to put together because of all the crystals but it looks stunning once you put it together. I liked it so much, I ended up purchasing two.
This chandelier looks beautiful in our master bedroom! I've received so many compliments and it was a great price for how it looks. I was worried it wouldn't be bright enough or would look cheap but it provides plenty of light and looks high end. Very happy with this item! I just need to be careful dusting it as the baubles are very delicate. And a word of warning - you have to connect all approx 200 baubles. I had my builder do it so I was lucky, but I'm sure it's time consuming so just make sure you realize that.
I love the look of this chandelier! It's hanging in my guest bathroom and this really looks classy! You do have to hang every ball, but it's worth it to me. I can not speak as to the difficulty in hanging because I hired it done by an electrician.
I originally purchased this chandelier a few years ago for a home Reno. I loved it some much that I bought it again for my own home. Looks just like the $$$$ designer option except it's glass and not crystal. Only reason to give this light a 4 instead of a 5 is because the hooks that are used to attach the glass to the light can cut your fingers when assembling. Have patience with assembly, it takes about and hour. Overall it's beautiful and sparkly!
