This is a great chandelier for a great price. Looks great once installed, but getting there is not easy. The reviewers who had trouble getting the circular glass diffuser to fit in the chandelier are right - mine also did not fit at first. I had to experiment with flexing the chandelier slightly. The trick it to test the fit before you install the chandelier. If you find that it fits with some convincing, go ahead and install the chandelier and then screw on the diffuser. Once it's screwed on, you'll have to convince it into place like you did before you installed the chandelier into the ceiling. I found that standing on a chair next to the chandelier and looking down into the chandelier to see where the chandelier needs to be flexed to allow the diffuser to fit worked best. Then reach under and gently force the diffuser into place making sure it doesn't lose its fit somewhere else along the edge. Again, this isn't a high-priced chandelier, so some extra work like this is to be expected. If you want a perfect fit, send it all back and see if the next one fits right. I didn't feel like going through the hassle of shipping the chandelier back, so i made it work. Also, i would not attempt to install this chandelier if you have never installed a light fixture. The instructions are useless and completely ignore all of the wiring instructions and focus only on putting the chandelier together. If you've never wired up a light fixture, don't start with this chandelier. Get someone to help you. You'll need to cut the chandelier wires to the right length and then strip them a little to expose the internal wires before hanging the chandelier. Once it's all done, it's a great-looking chandelier and produces a nice glow in the room.
