looks amazing (once you finally put it all together and hang it up)! bought this piece, knowing from the other reviews that this was going to be a project in itself, but i'm glad i did. it totally makes the room. the entire chandelier comes only semi-assembled, semi-wired for hanging, and in a 35 lb. box. although they did do a good job wrapping all the many pieces for shipping. you need beyond the basic tools that a normal person would have in their average toolbox and you may need some extra pieces from the hardware store too. take your time putting everything together and only hang all the crystals AFTER you've hung the fixture from the ceiling and wired it up for power. you also may have to be a bit creative in adjusting the crystals for hanging, the diagram they provide is detailed, but could do a better job. you will be well rewarded for patience! disclaimer: only buy this product if: 1.) you are willing to hire an electrician to put it together for you or 2.) you consider yourself beyond "handy" around the house.
