I read the other reviews before purchasing and I agree that hanging all of those glass pieces took a few hours and the mini key ring things to attach them with were very small so it was hard to see what you were doing. Some of the circular pieces that came attached to the chandelier were broken or missing but I was able to rig it with the extra rings included. I could have emailed the manufacturer to get replacement pieces but I didn't want to wait. Plus, who can really see those details when the chandelier is hanging from the ceiling...no one notices. The instructions were not the clearest but once I realized I was looking at a diagram of one of the 3 cross sections of the chandelier, I understood how it came together. We had an annoyingly painful time wiring it up since the threaded pipe that came with the fixture was too short since we have plaster ceilings so we needed another 1/4 - 1/2 inch in order to screw in the canopy loop nut lock which is what supports the light fixture. We had to purchase a longer threaded pipe & hack saw it to size and purchase 2 more nuts that went easily onto the threaded pipe we purchased. We ended up wiring and rewiring 3 times until we got the right length of the threaded pipe. In hindsight, we should have had an electrician do the wiring as recommended but the chandelier looks awesome in our 14 year old daughter's "girly" bedroom.
