I am so happy with this chandelier. I had my eye on it for some time and finally ordered. I also saw similar ones in either other stores or websites & either the price was ridiculously high or their was no comparison in the detail. I was a little reluctant from the comments about the color, which I was expecting it to get here & look completely different than the color shown in the pic (and thought to myself I would just get a can of spray paint which was suggested in the comments), absolutely not. I have no idea about these "red specs" I mean maybe if I put my reading glasses on I would see it, but no the color was true to the pic. I also was reluctant about putting this together because of the previous comments, I was lucky I was having work done and my electrician put it together basically in no time (I didnt expect him to put the crystals on but he did) I have gotten so many compliments I love it!!!
