I bought this chandelier to go over my bathtub. For that purpose it is perfect:. It llooks beautiful as long as you don't look for long or too closely. I was not terribly particular about the details that woud bother me if I chose to put it in my dining room. For example, the crystals do not line up horizontally and it looks inexpensive. It was easy to assemble and came with extra crystals and rings. I would recommend it for use in an area where quality and craftsmanship are not necessary for the personality of the intended decor.
