each chain of 'crystals' are preassembled, so all you have to do is attach the 25 sets to the lamp. that being said, my fingers were not nimble enough to do so, and my husband had to do it for me. the shade is plastic and the seam is visible, but I just angled it to a corner in the room when hung. overall I think its cute, but now that I have it hanging in my dining room I dont think it has the wow factor I had hoped for, and I definately dont think it looks expensive looking. I kind of wish I had put the money to something more classical and expensive looking.
