This fixture is fairly easy to install, I would suggest putting in the stem before putting up the main fixture plate as there is no real visibility to the electrical housing. The crystal drops are easy to hook in place. They all hung the same direction, but the longer rectangular crystals don't face outwards as they do in the picture - maybe with some twisting I can accomplish that look, but it is very elegant looking. I would suggest using frosted candle bulbs.
These flush-munt ceiling lamps are beautiful. The price is right, too (couldn't find anything on the internet that even came close). My only complaint is that the included installation instructions/diagram from the manufacturer are useless. I had to call the manufacturer directly and speak with their tech support desk in order to understand how to hang the light. That said, installation was a breeze once I had the correct info.
I ordered two of these light fixtures for my hall and they look very pretty. However, the lights in the photo have 7 crystals per strand and the ones I received only have four per strand. I thought that it would not fit but it did and it looks really pretty. I installed them myself and it was not difficult, just takes a little bit of time to install the crystal strands. You will need to polish the crystals when you install them though...they were a bit smudged up. Once polished and installed they look lovely. I would recommend this product. I rated the product "good" but would have rated it "excellent" had the crystal strands had the full seven crystal on them. I had ordered this particular light for another area in my home and it had seven crystals on each strand. Overall it is a good product and the light it produces is good and the crystals really have a nice sparkle.
It is a beautiful lamp that will add a very elegant and unique touch to your home decoration. I purchased two and I love them both.

Overall a good quality product. I like the brass color- I was worried to would look tacky and cheap but it does not at all. I saw this exact same product on another site for over double the price. The circle base was a little tweaked, but you can't tell once it's installed. Installation took me a while, but it's up! I wore very thin gloves, which I recommend to prevent fingerprints on base and crystals as well as protection from the fiberglass insulation on the base. It's VERY pretty turned on. I have 60-watt bulbs in each, which may be a little much for some folks, but I wanted it to be bright.
