We had a professional electrician install the light. I chose to put the beautiful crystal balls on myself to save money,, because it is very time consuming. BUT, oh my gosh this is an absolutely gorgeous chandelier ! We have a dimmer on it and I keep going back into the dining room just to look at it. With a promo code I had , free shipping and no tax it costs $$. You will not believe your eyes. In a lighting store this would easy have been 300-400 dollars. I am a very happy lady. thanks again Overstock !
