It is beautiful and of very good quality.......BUT....the difficulty level is high ! I found placing it upside down on a carpeted floor works. You will drop the crystals ( which are very nice heavy glass ) as there are very small awkward angles they must be placed. After a few attempts at twisting pins and securing, i got the hang of it, unfortunately they don't furnish enough pins to make any mistakes, and you will. I went to a local craft store and purchased jewelry pins to finish the project. I'm waiting to have the electrician hang it, to add the rest of the crystals as I'm afraid he will break them in hooking it up. It is beautiful, worth the cost for sure, but I would never do it again. It took 4hrs, many expletives, and I'm not yet finished.....
Thinking of getting the flush mount item also....it looks beautiful...easy to put together...it hangs in the middle of my bay window in front of my piano...very classy...looks like a very expensive piece....excellent quality for the price.....came within a few days of ordering...I am very pleased with this purchase...
This light is very pretty. Once the crystals are on, the bling bling is lovely. I must admit, adding the crystals was not fun. It took a really long time and some hooks were at an awkward angle and hard to reach. I recommend unscrewing the arms and then hanging the crystals. Once the crystals are on, the light is heavy. All that work is definitely worth it...such a pretty light....it is medium sized...not big at all but with all the crystals...it shines.....I put it in my entryway so I wish it was a little bigger but still very happy with it. BTW, there were no instructions...not even a picture to show how to add the hooks. The light came packed really well and shipped in a timely manner. I would recommend and would buy again....even with all the work it took.
I had read the reviews and knew that assembly would be a chore. In short, I used my fingernails to open the jump rings that attached the prisms to the fixture. In hindsight, I probably would have taken the chandelier arms off entirely (came attached to the central fixture) and then reattached them after I put the prisms on. I had to unscrew some in order to get my hand positioned properly. They attach with two short screws -- no issue. Since I am hanging this in my laundry room, I will probably install light first and then put the arms on after it is attached to the ceiling -- it is HEAVY. So good looking for not too much money!
This is a beautiful little chandelier. I used it in a Master Bath and it adds a nice sophisticated touch.

The 40 Watt light bulbs we put into this fixture (it says 60 watts are max allowed) melted the wires! It smoked and shorted out! Burnt wires are everywhere, the sockets dropped out! We purchased this for our 886 year old mother, thank heavens it didn't create a house fire!
I can't recommend this more highly. The price was great. I was concerned that putting all the crystal balls would be daunting, however it was not! I love looking at it every time I enter my dining room. It is just the right size for the space.
We put this in a guest bedroom and on a dimmer. It is very lovely in the room. It was a bit of a task to put all the crystals on and took 2 people to install because it was pretty heavy, but once it was installed, it looked very nice in the room.
