This compact but big-impact chandelier brightened up my entry hall perfectly. I was looking for chic sparkle that wasn't over-the-top and I got it at a great price. You'll receive the chrome frame with links of crystals in separate bags. Once you get the hang of attaching the links to the frame it's a piece of cake, but will take about 45 minutes. Installation is standard fixture replacement, all the parts you need are included (except the electrical engineer dad I had to speed the process). The dangling crystal ball is mesmerizing. These are actual crystals, not plastic, and they'll really sparkle in the light.
