The crystal light display is dazzling, like multi-faceted diamonds shimmering in all directions. I replaced a pot light in the hallway of my dressing area, and this light adds just the right amount of bling. Because I had to convert a pot light into a ceiling-mounted unit, I had to purchase a converter kit at a local big-box home store and hired a handyman to do the installation. Once he completed the conversion, it took one hour to wire the frame and install each crystal one by one. The process went smoothly working as a team, with me inserting a wire in each crystal, while he stayed on the ladder and installed each crystal in the frame one at a time. Easy but a bit tedious. If you need to hire someone like I did, this will add to the cost, but still well worth it. I priced very similar lights at local lighting stores and each was hundreds of dollars more. Tips from other reviewers were very helpful: install the frame on its own, then install each crystal, otherwise it will be too heavy and fragile. Three complaints: (1) the wires for each crystal seem quite flimsy; the crystals are heavy and I do worry that one might fall although the handyman assured me he made sure each was clamped down well. (2) I received one spare crystal - good thing as one arrived damaged so I needed the spare. I phoned the 1-800 number provided in the packaging, and have already received 2 replacement crystals free of charge.(3) light bulb directions say "B" base but chandelier lights are too long. I had to return for the small round types, which work great. NOTE: you CAN change these bulbs without removing the crystals. Overall, one of the best purchases I have made on Overstock - a dazzling piece of bling for my home at a very fair price.
