This is a beautiful chandelier - it is really lovely in person - and it was not difficult to put together. My husband assembled the metal parts and I hung the crystals. It took me about 2 hours to unwrap each crystal, lay them out in groups, and hang them. The diagram is very easy to read and makes crystal placement easy. I suggest suspending the fixture from a hook - I hung mine on a pot rack - to hang the crystals so that you can walk around the chandelier as you place them. This also keeps the chandelier at a good eye level height so that your arms don't get tired reaching up too high. If you keep all of the same crystals together and label them in groups you will have no problem figuring out what goes where. The metal fastenings are very easy to crimp and I suggest making sure that the pieces that come already hooked together are securely fastened. All of the crystals appeared to be in perfect condition - no nicks or scratches. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it. If you like it in the picture, you'll love it in person.
