I bought this chandelier for my new entryway. I got it about a week after ordering as I am in Michigan and it shipped from California. It was very well packaged. They give you cloth gloves to handle the crystals with but those seemed to snag a lot. I just grabbed some plastic gloves and they worked perfect. It takes three bulbs which are not included so keep that in mind before you put it up. What a bummer to put it together and realize you don't have the bulbs! ( I am using 3 40 watt bulbs and it is quite bright, thinking about putting in lower watt ones or a dimmer switch) It was very heavy once assembled so my huband and I had to put it up together, me holding and he wiring. From the time I took it out of the box until the time it was up and turned on was about 45 minutes. You definetly want to take all of the crystals out of the box and sort them before you start attatching them to the base. Everyone that comes to my house says how beautiful it is and where did I get it. My sister has seen it on three seperate occasions and each time tells me how jealous she is of my chandelier. I am thinking of ordering a similar one for my master bedroom also! I love, love, love it!

I got this light fixture for a room with an 8 foot ceiling. When I bought the house the room had a huge chandelier in the bedroom and I am not sure how the old owners did not hit their heads. I could have gotten one a little bigger, but this one is very nice and I am happy with it. I painted the room with ben moore horizon gray. When the light is on it make the walls have a design (diamond shapes) from the crystals.

This is a gorgeous light. The photo does not do it justice. Our electrician installed it in our entrance foyer and it gives off a bright, sparkling light and throws reflections all around the space that add a real "wow!" factor. A few things to note: It took about 40 minutes to put on all of the crystal balls, and with all of that crystal the fixture weighs about 11 lbs. So, you have to choose whether you want to hang a pretty hefty light or whether you want to install all of the crystal after it is hung -- either way, it's a little hard to do. But worth it.
I was skeptical when purchasing this light online. For interior decorations, I'd like to see them in person. But for this light, I took a chance since I've not been able to find something similar anywhere else (within the price range anyway). I am extremely happy with how it turned out after assembling the parts. It was a breeze putting it together except for spending some extra time on the crystals, because there are so many of them. Overall, I'd recommend this light to anyone who's looking for something that makes your house pop. I also tried taking a picture while my light is on, but it just doesn't come out right. Now I just like to turn it on and stare at it. :)

Because of the low ceiling height in my bathroom needed a flush mount chandelier. Was not sure if I was going to like the light but because of other reviews decided to give it a shot. I am sooooo happy I did. It exceeded my expectations - big time. I can't rave enough about how beautiful it is. I sat and stared at it for an hour after all the crystals were hung. Because of the weight of crystals had electrician install the fixture first and I hung the crystals after. Would recommend starting on the inside and working your way out. Directions were great - very easy to follow. I found the crystals incredibly easy to hang - took me less than 20 mins. It totally completed the look of my new bathroom. Would highly, HIGHLY, recommend this light.
I purchased 2 of these chandeliers for our outer room. They are SO beautiful! I put the crystals on myself, and I have issues with my hands. it wasn't difficult and so worth the time! They create gorgeous prisms on the walls and ceilings. Everyone LOVES them! They are heavy, so be sure they are attached to a stud. My husband put them up and said it was super simple.

My husband put together this light so I can't comment on the complexity of that, however if it was overly cumbersome I expect I would have heard some complaining! All of the previous reviews helped tremendously in my choice to buy this chandelier for my soon to be born daughter's room. I expected it to be a little brighter based on the other reviews. The room we have it in is quite large and will not require a dimmer as some other people have suggested. The previous light in that room as far too dim though. This one gives off just the right amount of light. I love that it is unique. Not something you find on the shelf at the big box retailers but at a price that is very reasonable. Good job again Overstock!

If you are looking for a chandelier for a smaller room, this is perfect. It comes without bulbs and it has small rings (like a key ring) to attach it to the fixture. It can be a pain to install, but well worth the work.

We have a small twinhome, and I hung this in our dining room. We have about 7.8 foot ceilings, and I thought the flush-mount would be appropriate. Now that it's hung, I kind of wish I had gone for the hanging fixture, just because it's so petite. We used 60 watt halogen round bulbs and it's beautiful and lights our small dining area with no trouble. I also found that hanging the three long crystals to the base (which are kind of difficult and awkward to attach - and one of the eyeholes kept swiveling - major pain in the doo-dah!) and then hanging the fixture, and afterwards hanging the rest of the crystals worked best for us. I sorted all the crystals by size and worked from the inside out and the process went fairly quickly (about 25 minutes to hang the rest of the crystals). The ground wire is readily apparent, but the other wires are not black and white, so my husband just attached one to each and either it didn't matter which one goes to which, or he got lucky, because the light works great. It's a beautiful fixture and I can imagine this working for many different spots in the home! As far as the parts, it came all inclusive, but only with one large extra crystal, then several (about 7) of the small octagon crystals and extra key-ring type joiners. The strands of crystals are already strung - you just need to attach to the fixture itself. Another reviewer was spot on about using the latex gloves (to not print up the crystals) instead of using the included cotton gloves. Great purchase!
I just finished installing this in my master bedroom. It's so pretty & sparkling. I installed the fixture first then hung the beads. Since I put it up on my own that was the only way to do it. Easy install just pay attention to the picture provided. I had to re do some parts because I was trying to move too fast. I looked at the box stores before ordering this, I was only finding ugly plastic beads for this price. I am so pleased with the fixture & the price.
Beautiful fixture! It is not big, so fits my bedroom perfectly. I rated quality good instead of excellent because some of the pieces have little chips in them since they all are crystal. You don't really see those flaws when you hang them up. The finished product is easy to assemble and looks very expensive. It came very well packaged and had spare parts in case some of the pieces were really damaged, which they were not. I think it is a great chandelier for the price. I have seen chandeliers with much less crystal in them for much more money, I would buy it again.
Realize that there is a pattern of shadows that illuminate the walls and surroundings like any crystal chandelier. Shipped with extra parts. It needed the brightest incandescent light bulbs we could find. We have had lots of complements.
I purchased this chandelier for my foyer and it looks stunning!!. The reflection of the crystals against the wall are absolutely beautiful. it looks like a very expensive chandelier and had a lot of compliments. I would definitely recommend it!!
