There is NO question, this is a wonderful piece. The crystal balls are made out of true glass or crystal and not out of plastic. The only problem I have the reason why I gave it a 3 rating is because, this item is not an easy thing to put up on the ceiling. I have been holding this item for over a month now and I still couldn't find someone who can easily put this beautiful piece up unless I pay a true electrician a fee that will cost me so much. Electricians and true contract people are expensive. It is also time consuming to attach all 31 crystal balls into the rings one piece at a time. But once you have it on, it looks stunning. I read majority of the advice on here before I bought this piece and followed one shoppers instruction to attach the crystal balls into the ring before putting it up on the ceiling. My suggestion is NOT TO DO THAT. Why? It's because if you do, you're handy man I'm pretty sure will have a very hard time putting it up on the ceiling because the all 31 crystals are very heavy. Like one shopper said, 3 people helped her attached this piece on the ceiling since it was so heavy. One was holding the crystals, while the other one was helping and holding the metal piece and the true handy man/electrician was doing his thing with the wires. Thus, I do suggest to have the lighting fixtures get attached to the ceiling first before attaching the crystal balls into the ring. But do make sure that you're attaching it up on a ceiling that can hold up the weight of this chandilier. It is very heavy and I'm still hesitating on putting it up on the wall unless a true licensed contractor does come and do it for me.
