I am very pleased with my purchase. The chandelier is beautiful and all that I hoped for. Though I had to hang each beautiful crystal myself assembly was easy. My electrician husband hung the fixture but I think I could have done that part as well. The diagram that labeled the parts was a little off but we figured it out.
This chandelier is a copy of a very expensive designer chandelier. The look is just as nice and the bonus is much, much, much less expensive. All heavy glass ball, no plastic. You do have to assemble, but not bad. Just hang first, and then put the glass balls on, use the white gloves that come with the lighting, finger smudges will show up if you don't. Great light, great price, beautiful look!
This light is stunning and a great deal for the price! You cannot assemble it completely before hanging though as the larger crystals will just fall off. I ended up putting on what I could, which was all of the smaller crystals and then finished putting the rest on once hung. The crystals are easy to put on but have a pretty generic clip to hang with that is basically just a staple that you have to squeeze together to try to make it secure.
The light is beautiful. It's slightly smaller than I thought it would be (of course the measurements are listed) but is very pretty. It isn't as flashy as I thought it would be either. You almost dont notice it, but then when you see it you see how pretty it is. Can't imagine that the version that's $1000 more is any better. I installed this with my husband. We've never installed a light before, so it took a while. But wasn't difficult, just awkward. If you are installing yourself, make sure you take out extra chain loops first, and cut the wires to be close to the correct size.
