We just love this chandelier. We placed it in our dining room and it is perfect over our table. It offers glamour without being overdone. The crystals come in separate packaging and not attached. We attached the crystals after hanging the fixture. The directions offer some but little help in how or where to attach them. We simply opened all of the packaging and laid out all the crystals. You will find that you have both five strand (some with hanging loops on both ends and some with one hanging loop on one end) and six strand crystals, along with 1 major crystal and several teardrop crystals, as well as a number of two strand crystals (with a loop on each end). Look at the picture online and the directions and put on the crystals you are sure of first. Then, by process of elimination, you will be able to place the others. Obviously the very large crystal hangs on the very bottom. The five strand crystals (with a hanging loop on one end) hang around the lightbulb and dangle straight down. Then proceeding top to bottom. First, a teardrop hangs on each swirl at the top of the fixture. Next, hang the two strand crystals in the space between the two fixture loops and attach a teardrop to the center of each. *NOTE: When connecting one crystal to another always connect via a loop and not to the fixture itself. The next layer is the most complicated. Hang a teardrop crystal on every swirl loop remaining on the fixture. Then drape a five strand (with loops on both ends)between the open spaces (teardrop to teardrop) on the next layer. Last but not least, you will have six strand crystals remaining. They drape from the teardrop crystals with the five strand crystals that you attached in the last layer to the very bottom teardrop crystals (which circle the largest crystal at the bottom). Hope this somehow helps. You'll figure it out. We did.
