I absolutely love this chandelier! The color is black with a sublte sparkle. It is not shiny but is not quite a matte finish. As the other reviews said, it is very time consuming putting on the glass crystal's. It is not real crystal, it is more light glass. When the light is on it does sparkle. It comes with extra crystals. I put it over the kitchen table with the shades on. I didn't follow the instructions for placement of the crystals, for most of them I did but at the bottom I changed it and like it much better. I purchased 3 smaller Versailles chandeliers for the foyer and the hall, I didn't use the shades. For the money you can have a high end look without the high end price. I highly recommend if you are looking for an inexpensive chandelier.
