I purchased this item because I was instantly drawn to it as it is just what I had it mind. I wanted something brownish in color but yet wanted a little bling. I love this and have since purchased the other one that is not two tier and am purchasing the pendant for my foyer. The crystals do have to be put on one at a time but I did it in 3 evenings while watching TV. It really wasn't that bad. The chandelier is beautiful and will look perfect in my dining room. I have a oblong rustic dark brown table with 4 chairs and a bench. Perfect color and a little bling. The crystals sparkle. I can't wait to see it with light bulbs in it. As soon as the other one I ordered arrives, I'll put the 400+ crystals on it. This one will go over my eat in kitchen pub height table. Overstock has awesome customer service and I will definately order from them again and again. Thank you overstock!!
