I saw a similar chandelier at another retail store and immediately fell in love with it. However, I didn't want to pay that much for a chandelier. I decided to check Overstock to see if I could find a similar product. Much to my delight, I found this chandelier priced much more reasonably than the one at the other retail store. I read the reviews and the specs for this product and decided to order it. This chandelier is slightly smaller than the one at the other place but it still works great in my dining room space. I agree with the other reviewers about the color of the candles. They aren't ivory at all. They're an ugly yellow gold color that really detracts from the beauty of the chandelier. I painted mine bronze because I don't want them to detract from the spectacular free form of this unique chandelier. I'm very pleased with this purchase. It's beautiful hanging over my dining table even when it's not turned on.....it's absolutely gorgeous when it is turned on and the light shines through all the crystals and it makes incredible shadows on the ceiling. If you don't want to call attention to an area of your home, DON'T put this chandelier in that spot because it's certainly a statement maker. It DOES take quite a bit of time to put together and get all the crystals attached. I put all the arms on the base then suspended the entire chandelier from the bracket of my six foot ladder. I completed it in approximately ten hours and did it over a couple days because my fingers would get sore. A good pair of needle nose pliers are a must. My son hung this for me and did so in just a few minutes. I used a cord cover over the chain to dress it up just a little more. I'm very happy with it and would purchase it again. I gave it four stars since the candles are such an ugly color. Were it not for that, I would have rated it five stars. The product was well packaged for shipment; there were no broken crystals and extras were included just in case. It was shipped and arrived quickly which has always been true of anything I ordered from Overstock.
