After assembling and putting this fixture up - IT IS FABULOUS. Anyone purchasing this -- Alert - you must take the chandlier - fixture - completely apart to install - then put it back together -- not the arms but the central units that are connected (this will save some time if you know this up front). Overstock Wholesale Buyers SHOULD require that the manufacture submit GOOD directions for their products.
This chandlier "Bling" is not hard to assemble; it comes in necklace - like strings and you just count off and add the ornaments. Here is my tip: One gallon zip lock bags - label A, B, C. D, E. Put together each set and place in bags as the electrician is installing -- then hang E first, then D, then C, then B, then A -- I hope that helps.
Definitely worth the effort - Not for a first time installer though.
I hesitated before buying this fixture because I just couldn't decide if I would really like it. I'm very glad I bought it (in chrome) because it's very beautiful hanging in my bonus room. It really dresses up the room very nicely and it is so much prettier in person than in the picture.
The assembly was a pain because the directions don't give you the parts list for the clasps so I didn't find the large clasps in the packaging at first. I was trying to hang the large balls at the bottom of the strands with too small clasps and not having much luck. A more thorough search of the packaging revealed the correct clasps and assembly was much easier after that. The links came in 3 long necklaces. You just count off how many crystals you need in your strand and unclasp from the necklace and attach a large ball to the end with a large clasp. Monotonous but worth it.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well made but some of the crystal balls were a bit chewed up at the top

We bought the chrome one and love it. I only wish it was a little bit bigger because the room it is in is big, but the light output is enough and the crystal balls shine and sparkle beautifully. We didn't find it difficult to assemble. I took about an hour to hang all the crystals once all the electrical connections were made and the frame fixed in place.
Once we put this together it became a very lovely chandelier. Gives a sparkly decadence to my walk-in closet and I can see using it in a hallway or bathroom to great effect as well. Provides lots of crystal illumination.
Instructions are minimal - pay attention to the detail on the drawings and make sure to do a complete count and sort of all the parts beforehand - checking the other reviews first was a big help. Enclosed fabric glove was a nice touch but you're better off using a latex glove that won't snag on hanger parts. Assembly is very straightforward and results are beautiful. Would recommend to anyone.

I received this chandelier a few days after placing the order. It is an absolutely beautiful fixture. My husband hung the fixture with no problem; I then put the crystals on. The crystals did take about an hour to place on the chandelier but it was not difficult. It seemed a bit confusing when I unwrapped all the crystal parts but the directions (pictures) were easy to follow. I hung this in my bathroom over the sink and it looks great. . I would not hesitate to recommend this chandelier for any room. Looks very high end and expensive. (A few people have mentioned having to possibly remove the crystals to change the lightbulbs--that is not true. I changed out the bulbs after it was all finished with no problem.)
Came on time. Strung all of the links of crystals, unwrapped the fixture to see two of the studs in the middle of the fixture had broken off and were in the bottom of the box. I needed this as a surprise gift, so repaired the fixture with epoxy. Didn't really need have the time or need the trouble.
I purchased 2 of these lamps for my living room and to me they are what I would have expected from a high end chandelier with the cut swarovski crystal balls. It's a little laborious putting together the strings of cut crystals with the balls, but the labor is well worth it. When the lights are on the shadows cast by the crystals are beautiful. I did have an electrician hard wire them only because of my bum shoulder, but I hung all the crystals.
They are in my new home in Puerto Rico.
Just wish Overstock shipped to P.R., I will miss ordering from them when I finish moving to P.R... they will lose me as a customer. :o(
I was a little scared of the reviews i was totally over thinking the assembly. it was sooo easy! my electrician put it up in less than 45 minutes. its absolutely beautiful. the sparkle lights up my foyer. perfect size.
