Once this light is up you'll forget about the process of assembling/ installing it! It's absolutely stunning, and photos here don't do it enough justice! We read the reviews carefully before purchasing, and they were right- there are a few fiddly things you need to do to make the chandelier installation go smoothly. Here are my tips:
-I discovered a way to deal with the black electric cord: silver model paint. Get a little brush and vial of Testor or other model paint at your local craft store. A LOT easier and cheaper than replacing it yourself or paying someone else to! Wait until AFTER installation and the cord is woven through the chain. Since the cord is bendable, the paint will flake off if you move it around. Carefully paint the exposed black areas. Voila!
-The mounting cup is smaller than most US light electrical boxes. No biggie. Get a ceiling light medallion at your local big box home store.
Painters caulk will stick the medallion to the ceiling nicely.
I did this myself and completed the installation (after getting the above items) in less than 2 hours. The most time consuming part was attaching all the glass crystals and beads- but even that was kinda fun. You won't regret any of these detours above once you are looking at this amazing chandelier! Good luck.

This is an absolutely beautiful chandelier...BUT....if you purchase this, BEWARE!! I got the chandelier assembled at 11pm before my electrician came at 8am the next day. All the packaging was great and protected the crystals perfectly. Everything looked great prior to install. However, when my electician arrived, he could not install the chandelier. The problems are as follows: 1. The cord for hanging the chandelier is black, not silver, making it UGLY, so it needs to be REWIRED! 2. The chain and cord are way shorter than advertised. 3. The chain is fairly flimsy. 4. MOST IMPORTANTLY, this chandelier is "European" electrically, meaning that the canopy for the light box needs to be Americanized so it can even be hung at all. It has NO brackets to secure it to the ceiling. So, now I have to get the chandelier rewired at a lighting store with 25 foot silver lamp cord instead of the black, buy a new, sturdy longer chain, and get an American canopy and bracket set so the chandelier can be hung and installed. WHAT A PAIN!!!! I have no idea how much MORE this will cost me. Please be advised that this chandelier is high maintenance!!
Nice product BUT before you hire your electrician PLEASE get the shopping list done...it does NOT fit American standard electrical boxes. I hired an electrician to install and he had to run up to HOME DEPOT for the fitting around the electrical opening and the actual brackets to hang the fixture. It is beautiful but buyer beware! This simple job cost me as much as the chandelier to have installed!

This is a beautiful chandelier that makes a fabulous addition to my dining room. Definitely a statement piece. Assembly took some time....about 2 hours from box to ceiling. The directions are a little hard to follow, but not impossible. My father and husband worked together. I have received numerous comments on how "stunning" and "stylish" the fixture is, and many people are shocked when I tell them it's from Overstock. Definitely recommend!

The fixture should come with a warning that it has a european mount kit - not an american mount kit - so if you're excited to install right away - you'll either need to go out and buy a US mount kit or steal one from the old fixture (which is what we did).
Also - the wire is black and should be at least coppery or brushed nickel in color...this is 2013? are there still no more wire choices than black or white?
looks gorgeous now its installed in my dining room which I recently repainted to "glam" it up...really works
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? excellent
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very nice fixture - value for the money

For this price you can't find anything as nice in local stores and I live in Houston where every store is!
I do have to say *** carries a similar chandelier with crystals but I already have that one above my kitchen dining table,
love that this one is similar but different!
I bought this chandelier with intentions of installing it in my bedroom with a normal height ceiling. I removed the chain all together and used it as a ceiling mount chandelier. My husband is 6 ft. tall and his head hit it but I installed it over our bed anyway where he does not walk. I have a great picture of it installed, I wish I could post the photo. It took me 45 min to unwrap the beautifully wrapped crystals, nothing was broken or missing. It took my husband an hour to install it. Yes it is European and you do have to run out to get a larger canopy. No the cord is not black, mine was white/silver. I just love it. I did put on a dimmer switch (it's very bright) which my husband installed in 10 min. You need to buy this for your bedroom, den or dining room. Oh one more thing, the width of of drum shade is 22 inches, larger than I expected.
this is an awesome chandelier for the money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can take the assembly directions and throw them away, as they are generic and useless. I went back to the picture online and tried to copy the look of where things went. But, I would certainly purchase it. It is QUITE LOVELY AND A GREAT TRANSITIONAL PICECE!!!!!

Can this chandelier be hung flush to the ceiling? Or is the cord adjustable to be shorter?robin0528 on Jun 22, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The cord is attached with an "S" hook and is easily adjustable. I am not sure it can be hung flush to the ceiling, but the height is very adjustable with the chain it hangs from.lawyerl on Jun 24, 2014
Yes, you can hang this however you want.krazicolor on Aug 7, 2014

The chandelier needs to be supported by an electrical junction box in the ceiling capable of supporting it. It is well worth having an electrician install it, as it is truly a beautiful conversation piece. It "made" my dining room!agent12 on Jan 7, 2014

So the wiring for this is the US voltage but the electrical box is still designed for European fixtures?mcoone on Nov 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello mcoone, As stated previously, this product is wired for the U.S. I see two of the 73 reviews mention this issue, so I can only assume the fixtures were sent in error. Please be reassured that should a product be sent in error, it will be immediately taken care of. Thank you for checking with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 4, 2013
so based upon everyone's experience, what is a good size ceiling and room to handle a light like this?jgreeley3366 on Oct 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello jgreeley3366, There is no standard answer, however, our google research found a simple equation for determining room dimensions and fixture diameter according to Karen Davis Design.
"For calculating the appearance as well as lighting capacity of a single bedroom light fixture, measure the length and width of your room in feet -- for example, 12 feet by 15 feet. Add the length and width together: 12 + 15 = 27. Substitute inches for feet to indicate the diameter of a ceiling fixture that will be visually appropriate for your room. Twenty-seven inches is the diameter of a fixture suitable to your 12-by-15-foot room"
We hope this helps and thank you for shopping with us.
