I did what others in the reviews did, paint the candlesticks because the gold yellow was not going to mesh well in my house. After spray painting them a French white, my husband installed the chandelier. It looks great. Much brighter than my old one and i love it. The only reason why i gave it a 4/5 stars was because i had to do some “finishing touches” to the candlesticks. But we couldn’t beat the price!
The item is the same shape as the photos but the color in the photo is way off from the actual item received. It's almost a mottled brown / red / copper / gold melange. The crystals are a task and a half, particularly if the chandelier is already hung as is recommended. (NBD just hanging out at the top of a ladder beading fragile crystals with easily-breakable wires.) Otherwise it's beautiful and I look forward to finishing the crystal assembly so that it can be fully enjoyed. I may take a dark brown sharpie to it at some point so it matches my other oil rubbed bronze hardware but will leave it for now. Overall it works for me despite its flaws.
I am very happy with the chandelier! It adds industrial/farmhouse style to our dining room, and it does not look small with our 15 foot ceilings. The candles are more gold/tan than cream. The candles arrived slightly bent from transport, but they straightened easily.
