I think, after extensively looking around the internet for wrought iron crystal chandeliers, that if you are looking for a big bang for only a few bucks this is a great purchase. It is not, however, a high quality piece of lighting. When I opened the box, the leaves and bobeches were bent and more than half of the crystals had easily visible defects. They also have very little light refraction or sparkle (rainbow effect).
What I can say is that once the crystals are hung, in whatever design you choose they make a very impressive piece (there is an endless opportunity for fun creativity here, because they give you extra crystals and lots of places on the chandelier on which to attach them). I wish there was a place to upload a picture of the finished product, because it came out nicer than the version online. It's the extra crystals...use them!
And I would also suggest using 15 watt bulbs. When I used the 25watts on the 12 lights...it was waaaay too much. All you could see was light bulbs. With the 15watts, the focus is back on the graceful lines of the chandelier and the modest light refraction of the crystals.
Obviously the assembly was a bit of a hassle... you first attach all the arms to the center post, then you must wire all the arms to each other BEFORE you wire it to the ceiling. I went into a home improvement store, with the thing half assembled and begged for a lesson on wiring. I got lucky and the guy said, "Just go shop around and I'll wire it all together for you." Such a nice guy.
After all is said and done, it was more work than expected, but I knew (from reading reviews) what I was getting myself into, and I think the end result was definitely worth the money.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I was warned that it would be darker than pictured and it was. I used a hammered bronze spray on it before I assembled it and it was much better.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I wouldn't say that the quality was the highest. Many of the flourishes/leaves and such were bent and had to be reshaped. It was a good thing I was repainting it, because as soon as I bent the metal leaves back into place, their paint flaked off. And it would be more accurate to call the crystals just glass (there is almost no prismatic effect). More than half of the crystals had flaws or scratches as well. But considering the decent size of it and the full effect of so many crystals it was none-the-less a good buy.

This is a big beautiful chandelier! I have wanted one for quite a while but everything I liked was well over a thousand dollars. I came across this one and decided that I would try it. Beware - there is A LOT of assembly required. The metal arms are not even connected. My husband assembled the structure/base part in about an hour and a half, and he's very handy. Took another 30 minutes to hang it, and then it took about 2 hours to hang all of the crystals. Every single crystal is a separate piece...this is a time consuming project. Instructions are awful. You basically need to print the picture and use it as a pattern but you can really arrange the crystals however you'd like. The connection pieces are a bit flimsy so you'll need to be careful when you're dusting this fixture. The end result is beautiful. The crystals sparkle and they are large. I didn't care for the flat black paint on the metal so I took bronze craft paint and a sponge paint brush and very lightly brushed it over the metal (before hanging the crystals). It looks SO much better! This is really a gorgeous fixture for the money...looks like it cost much, much more!

This chandelier was not difficult to assemble. I am a woman in my 40's and I was able to assemble this light in under 30 minutes. Hang the crystals after the light is assembled and installed. The light fixture itself is black. There is a metallic finish to it, but is not noticeable at a distance. A person could spray this another color if they wish. There are many beautiful, high quality spray paints once can purchase if they wish for another colored finish. We did not prefer the white candle sticks, so I sprayed them a silver metallic finish and it goes fantastically with our decor. We love to mix high end pieces with lower priced pieces and the result is amazing. The chandelier looks like it cost much more than we paid for it. I wish this site would allow us to upload pictures because I'm certain my photos would sell many for them!
Please use 25 watt bulbs and so install dimmer. A dimmer takes it to a whole new level!

Contrary to many, I thought the product was very easy to assemble. You'll do best if you lay our all the parts by category. Make sure you have a ratchet wrench that fits the large-headed screws. Should take about 30 minutes. This is not a high end chandelier. If you want heavy wrought iron or leaded crystal, you will have to pay north of $1000. This was perfect for me, though. It is going in a vacation home with a high ceiling, and it is difficult to discern the "quality" from that height. I'm sure these Chinese made products cost about $50 to make, but you are unlikely to find a better deal.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? about right
Please tell us about the quality of the product. About what you'd expect for the price
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The "wought iron" is tube, not solid. The "crystals" are light weight glass, not leaded. The retialer doesn't say they are leaded, but the implication is that these re real crystals.
You get what you pay for. This is not a high end chandelier, but you have to realize that when you see the price. The glass pieces are connected with some pretty flimsy, almost paper, not quite metal things. These connectors don't exactly fit on the larger glass pieces, and these are the same connectors that you hang on the chandelier. I am hoping that they stay on the chandelier once it is hung from our 2 story foyer. My husband put it together pretty effortlessly, but the directions were useless, as are the directions for hanging the glass pieces. Look at the picture on line and you should be fine. Oh, and the most important thing, you do not get enough WIRE or CHAIN to hang this thing properly You will receive 18 inches, and that's it!. Local hardware store had black chain, but not the right gauge, so we are doubling the chain, and I am banking on my electrician being able to add more wire. I would have returned this chandelier, but we already put it together; From a distance it looks pretty, so I'm glad it will be two stories up LOL.
My home decoration is a rustic/chic. I use a lot of wrought iron throughout the house mixed with dark wood . This chandelier is just beautiful! The only issue I had with this product was some of the Crystals have small chips not really noticeable unless very close. Overall still a high rating this chandelier lights up the room very well and it is just stunning
I'm very glad I read reviews because if I would have based my opinion on unpacking I would have sent it back. Instructions are worthless. I was very skeptical about the outcome but based on others who said the same I continued on and I'm very glad I did because it really is beautiful once assembled and up. I did not like the black color and used two different spray paints to get a rub oiled bronze textured finish both by *********. One was Autumn Brown textured and the other dark bronze. My light came out just like Restoration Hardware. Crystals are nice . Not glass but they do put off a very nice sparkle. Overall I am very happy.
This chandelier looks better in person. It has a medium black metal flake finish that goes well with the other items in my house that are rubbed bronze. My frame had no scratches. The chain could be a bit longer... it measured about 24" which makes the entire length from the ceiling to the bottom crystal about 53". I have 10' ceilings and I like that it is about 3' from the top of the dining room table. With this style of chandelier it looks better up high. If you need a longer chain and wire you will need to purchase a home improvement store, but that would be cheap and easy. Some of the crystals are a bit cloudy and scratched when you look at them up close, but hard to see at typical viewing 3' away. Also there are plenty of extra crystals that you should be able to discard the cloudy crystals.
The INSTALLATION...it is a bit involved. It takes about an hour to construct the main frame, about 1/2 hour to do the wiring, another 1/2 hour to hang the fixture, then about 2-3 hours to tweak everything straight and hang the crystals.
I disagree with some reviews saying that the wiring is difficult. It seems very obvious to me that all the white wires all go together and the black wires all go together. The only thing I did different was I used 2 jumper wires (1 for the white wires and 1 for black), so that there would be 7 wires per wire nut, rather than 13 wires. I simply cut about 2" of wire from the end of the main cord and used it as a jumper (there is plenty of extra cord). You will need 2 extra wire nuts for the jumpers.
I also rotated the candle trays in order for 4 of the long skinny crystals to hang nice (rather than 5). I agree with one of the other reviewers that you can throw away the instructions when installing the crystals and be creative. Just count to make sure you have enough to do your design because they are time consuming to install. I like it better without the crystals hung on the strung crystal.
If you buy this chandelier, be ready for about 4-6 hours of work, but it will look beautiful.

I've just received this chandelier, its in soo many pieces. The most important question is about the black and white wires and the copper wire at the bottom of the arms - do all these wires - white, black and copper all fit together? also if all these wires do fit together, once they are together they are all live wires in a metal dish - fire hazard much!!!michelle562 on Feb 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
