like the other reviews, the assembly process was not very fun. it took me (30-yr-old female) about an hour, while watching tv. some of the pieces appear to be real glass, and others are definitely fake; however, once the chandelier was hung, i was very impressed. it definitely looks more expensive and high-end than one would expect from a $130 purchase. definitely take all of the pieces out of the packaging and lay them out so you know what you are working with. many of the pieces look very similar, and you may accidently attach the crystals incorrectly otherwise. although, i don't think it really matters if you get the exact placement of the crystals - the whole thing just sparkles when it is lit. i'm very happy with it! 4 stars because of the lack of directions for assembly (you basically just look at a picture and guess) and also because when i went to o.co yesterday to try to look at different views of the chandelier while assembling i saw that the item went on sale; however, beacuse it had been more than 7 days since i ordered the item - they would not do a price adjustment.
