Well worth the money and looks great! It wasn't that difficult to put together. It took about 1 hour to assemble and another 1.5 hours to hang all the crystals. I wish i went larger :)

Purchased a smaller version of exact same chandelier from Neiman Marcus for almost twice the price. Then purchased this one for my front entry. It is very pretty and looks more expensive than price. Only drawback is the assembly. I had an electrician install it but I worked with him to open a million little pieces and sort them out. It took about 2 hrs. The directions are in tiny print and not clear. Very pretty but it cost almost as much to professionally install it as it did to buy it. If you are handy and extremely patient, this one is for you. Otherwise you may want to tear your hair out!!

Chandilier is very nice looking and it took around 3 hours to assembly. We used 60 watt bulbs and added a dimmer switch so we could control the brightness of the light. I am very pleased with the looks of the chandilier and would purchase again.

The bargain hunter in me immediately went to nextag to compare prices on this chandelier as soon as I read the review that said this same chandelier was available in one of the big box stores (HD) for $100. It's there alright, but the "crystals" on their website are acrylic not glass. So if you want the real thing you're going to have to fork over twice as much here for crystal prisms. I haven't purchases this item YET . . . so please disregard anything else I said about it. :) Hate those Required Fields.
I love this light. I have had it up for a few months and it catches the light just right. I purchased it for a much lower price at a large home store chain and it is still available for less than a hundred there. The only draw back are the instructions. If you use the photo on the box, you can get it put together very easily.
The chandelier is stunning! It took me a while to sort out the instructions, there were only 2 pieces of paper with graphs on them, but it wasn't too difficult to figure it out. I was able to put all the pieces together in 2 hours and I hired an electrician to help me put it up.
This product looks really classy; goes well with both contemporary and old-fashioned furniture. The size is perfect for an eight-ten seat dining table. The installing part was reasonably difficult. I needed help from my handyman. If I could do it myself, then I would give it a 5-star rating. But the price is just awesome. I guess that makes up for the handyman charge.
I was sooo excited to finally get my "crystal" chandlier unfortunately many pieces were broken. Overstock was worked wonderfully with me to replace the damaged item. The replacement had broken pieces as well so fortunately I was able to swap pieces from both to make a whole. Despite all my woes, the light is GEORGEOUS and work for me. I know some has complained that it is not "real crystal"...duh! Where can you buy a crystal chandlier for $**** For the price it works for me until I can afford the $3500 light I really want. Beware, it takes a lifetime to put together.
I just got my chandelier mounted. Its presence is all and more then what I expected. Its in the kitchen, I know a bit much, a little bling, And just what I wanted to cook under. O yea, I had to get a replacement piece and all happened without a hitch. I was able to track it from China. Sweet.
I really like this light. It was easy to put together and looks great. I liked the price compared to similar items. I like the security of overstock because I know I can get help, quick delivery, and mostly I love the review system. I can read what others thought about the product before I order. Thanks Overstock. We are doing a remodel and overstock is a great resources.
I thought the chandelier was beautiful once I got it together. I bought 2 of them and the first one I put together took HOURS!!!. The second one went much faster because I learned from my mistakes. While the chandeliers are very inexpensive considering how beautiful they are, I wish you had an option to receive them put together for an additional price.
We ordered two for our long hallway. The design is beautiful and it puts off an incredible amount of light. We have a Victorian home, so it was necessary to keep things looking classic. After seeing a number of beautiful antique lamps that cost 6 figures, we decided this was perfect. However, one had a rusty spot on the center column. It's not terribly visible unless you're looking for it. We elected not to hassle with exchanging it. The other was in great shape.
