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.....
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!
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.
This is a beautiful little chandelier. I used it in a Master Bath and it adds a nice sophisticated touch.

We put this chandelier in our bedroom. After reading the reviews on it, I poured myself a large glass of wine and prepared to spend hours putting it together. Umm, no. I didn't even get to the wine. (Okay, I maybe had a sip or two.) It seriously took me less than half an hour to put this together, and it looks fabulous!! We get *so* many compliments on it. It definitely looks like we paid a LOT more for it than we did.
Overall the finished product is beautiful. The Chandelier is well made with beautiful glass crystals to catch all the reflections of the light. The assembly was tedious, time consuming and challenging. Start to finish is took over 2 hours to assemble as I had to take a break several times to calm down :). Each glass crystal has to be attached to the chandleier using your fingers to pry open a tiny circular hook - this takes great patience and gets harder as you get to the center of the chandelier. The limited space makes even small hands difficult to use. I ended up using needle nose pliers which seemed to help to attach the crystals. One review mentioned pins (which I saw in the packaging) however, I did NOT use them to attach the crystals and it seemed to work. I used this chandelier in my daughter bedroom (a little fancier than she needs) but the look is glam glam glam.
