At first I was upset regarding the jet black color, however I have to say once all the crystals/glass were placed on it really works. I have a darker wood dining room set with soft yellow and gold tones in the room and it really goes well. I thought I would have to replace the candle covers ( which can only be bought online) but I happen to think the mustard color covers give it character. They match my decor but I think if you were to swap them out for ivory it would look great as well. I was able to follow the directions for the hanging the crystals except for the bottom beading. However I had fun making the beading my own design. I am very pleased with the outcome once it was hung up. My advice is to put the whole thing together and hang it in the room before you decide. The only problem with returning it after that would be taking off the crystals and repacking I think that would be difficult. Also the crystals are real glass ( really not sure if crystal) for the hanging pendants and are beautiful, but the small beading is plastic in my opinion and not as shiny. However it all works together when it is completed. You will never notice. I am very pleased. The price can't be beat and for me I feel like I got my crystal chandelier look at a bargain. It does not look cheap when hung up. Go for it.
