I was a little nervous to buy this chandelier because I thought it might look a little cheap, but let me say that this is a GORGEOUS light fixture!! I wanted something really bright and this definitely does the trick. I would recommend this to be on a dimmer because it is nice to turn down the lights low at dinner time or night but then have a lot of light at other times during the day. The metal is heavy and substantial.The crystals are plastic and when my husband touched them he was a little disappointed but once it is hung nobody would be able to tell they weren't real. It looks way more expensive than it costs and I am 100% happy with this purchase. Absolutely love it!! I took a picture and wish I could upload the photo so others could see how good it looks. The picture on the website does not do it justice at all.
