I am so pleased with this fixture! It is easy to assemble, although all 264 round crystals have to be attached by hand. It's easy, just time-consuming. They are real crystals and the finished look is like a prism. I couldn't ask for a better looking light for less money! One thing to note, both the 'white' and 'black' wires are wrapped in clear insulation and the wires are fused together...it was a pain to separate them . The wire with writing on it should go to the 'black' wire in your fixture box. Another note - it says the length is 11.5 inches, but if you are putting this fixture flush to the ceiling, it actually is a 15 inch length when you add the ceiling cap. As long as nobody over 6'3" comes into my closet, I'm good! I would buy this again.
