We got this for our baby girl's nursery, it looks great! It was fairly easy to put together, most crystals came pre-installed, wrapped in protective padding. There was one long string you have to attach around the middle "equator". The crystals are nice quality, glass/crystal, not acrylic. One was chipped pretty good, and a few other edges were rough, but they include several spares of each size. I didn't bother replacing since you can't even notice when installed. I installed three 60W clear bulbs, and installed a dimmer switch on the circuit, it gives off plenty of light. There were no wiring instructions included, make sure you know what you're doing if you DIY. I like the way all the light shines through the crystals, though it does make for an interesting pattern on the walls some may find distracting. I like the clean crystal look, there are no distractions from the frame, fixture, or bulbs. Definitely looks great in person, better than online!
