I believe I purchased one of the first ones of these that Overstock sold, and that there might have been some errors in the description at that time. This was supposed to come as a special delivery as it was "Oversized" I expected it to be around 1.5' x 2.75" - double check their specs before you order. It arrived UPS with the large glass dome broken, it wasn't packed well. I called Overstock, they were ready to reship a new one but when I thought about it, it just wasn't big enough for our dining room. The measurements that were listed at the time didn't jive with what arrived. The glass was pretty, although cracked, it was slightly mirrored - which doesn't show on the photos. I'm sure it would have been fine, but it wasn't the large, beautiful chandelier I was expecting.
It takes a while to put together all of the hanging pieces, but when it's finally done, it's so pretty. If you leave the light on for a while, you'll smell a slight burning odor, I guess from the metal pieces heating from the light bulbs. You must use the glove provided when handling this piece, if you don't , you'll be sorry! Finger prints are difficult to remove and manage on this piece, beware!
This chandelier is absolutely beautiful! Yes the glass is mirrored but when the lights are on the glass is almost crystal clear and it looks stunning! I placed it in my foyer and it looks so glamorous and not cheap at all! Worth the money!
I love this light. The look goes very well with my modern decor without being too hard line modern. However, I will say it looks very different in person than the image online, the shade has a metal or chrome look to the glass so it is not as see through as the image portrays. It will probably look different once I put the bulbs in, However I went to the hardware store to purchase bulbs and bought the bulbs listed in the paperwork and my electrician said they did not work. I wasn't around when he tried, so I'm not sure if he just wasn't familiar with this type of light, so I will try again. Also, the hanging part on the inside looks almost like organic crystals hanging down, which would be super cool, in reality they are cheap metal tubes with some etching on them. I'm keeping both lights because despite the lights looking different and the bulb issue the light is still really cool for the money and it looks great in the space!
This Chandelier arrived and was not as pictured. There is in fact nothing Crystal about it, the long strands which appear to be Crystal or Crystal like in the picture are silver plastic tubes which require a ton of installation. I packaged up the product in the original box exactly how it was received and when I got notification of my return it was for 1/2 stating it was damaged to the point of not being resellable which I find impossible. The gentleman I spoke with at Overstock was friendly and refunded me the difference stating there was no way it could have been my issue but the product itself was a HUGE disappointment,
