Stunning Light Fixture
 from Troy, NY,  Mar 13, 2012

This chandelier is absolutely stunning! It brings a unique, contemporary sparkle to a room and casts beautiful shadows on the ceiling through the crystals. We hung ours over our table in our small dining area. It seems just right for our small space - however if you have a full size dining room or a large table, I would recommend a larger fixture. Based on the measurements available online, I'd say the listing is accurate, but I was still a bit surprised to find that the top metal part of the fixture is a bit bigger than I expected proportionally to the crystals - I think it's a trick of perspective in the picture that makes it look a little smaller! For those like me who are a bit picky about color temperature, please note that the included bulbs are very warm in tone, unlike the image. I usually prefer a brighter white light temperature, but with this fixture, I don't mind the warm tone at all. It seems to bring out occasional red, yellow, and pink glints in the crystals - very pretty. As others have noted, assembly is a bit tedious. My recommendation is to hang the fixture first, then hang all the crystals (be sure to be gentle and make sure you screw the hanging bracket into a stud or firm surface to help offset the weight of the crystals). My moderately handy husband didn't have any trouble hanging it up since its much lighter without the crystals (and it's easier to put in the bulbs without the taut wires in the way too!). It only took me about a half hour after that to hang all the crystals using the included wire circles (they reminded me a little bit of key rings). My husband and I both found the included instructions a bit mystifying, but luckily the whole operation was self-explanatory enough that it didn't really matter. As other reviewers have mentioned, the size of the crystals is supposed to vary, but I gave up trying to figure out which were which very quickly. They should really label the boxes! It does not seem to matter in the end though - the fixture looks beautiful even if you can't tell the sizes apart. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase and have been receiving loads of compliments from friends and family! This fixture looks way more expensive than it is!
