This is GORGEOUS and I absolutely love the fact that the glass portions are real glass, not cheap plastic. It's large and makes quite a dramatic impact. I used it as my bedroom chandalier and couldn't be happier. I also ordered two of the matching table lamps for the nightstands. The amount of light is plenty for the room and overall, I'm tickled with the purchase and the price was phoenomenal. However, I gave it only 4 stars instead of 5 because this thing was difficult to hang on the ceiling. They only give you a system that requires a hook to be in the junction box in the celing. Huh? I had no hook to attach the eye-attachment they provided as a means to hang it. So my father had to actually construct a hook on a crossbar for the junction box in order to hang this thing. When we spoke to someone about it at the hardware store (they make no such pre-made system to hang stuff with hooks), he stated that the only time he's even seen a system to hang something like that is in situations where the item is extremely heavy, which this is not. So the whole experience of hanging it was a real beast, took hours literally, and made no sense to me. But it's up and I love it, in spite of the difficulty.
