Lovely fixture for the price! Took major effort to assemble each crystal to each pin and then to attach to the fixture. The fixture is extremely heavy and took two people to assemble and connect to the electrical on the ceiling. Price was so low --- You do get a lot of "bang for the buck" and Sparkle!
This is an *absolutely stunning* fixture with two major flaws. First is that the installation bracket is such that it is not possible to install the light in an arbitrary orientation. The net effect of that is that it may not be aligned properly to face the direction you'd like to face the bars. You'll have to rig something up yourself to correct this or change the orientation of the underlying electrical box. The second flaw is that there is no top cover for the drum shade. So if you install this in a location where it is possible to see down into the fixture -- for example, close to stairs -- you will be able to see the internals of the fixture, which really ruins the beauty of this. There is a minor challenge with the installation as the electrical wires that it ships with are designed for pendant and flush mount installation so you will have to separate the line and neutral wires manually (with some difficulty). Otherwise, the installation is not too hard.
Electrical installation was a breeze but attaching the shade and finial pieces was insufficient. Threaded screw to attach finial was too small. Doesn't fit shade/attachments. Need a longer threaded screw. Otherwise shade and acrylic piece don't fit. Will be inquiring. Otherwise, this piece is very lovely.
Purchased the 16" model for a secondary bedroom. The light is attractive and simple for a ceiling light. The lens is a frosted plastic. Installation was simple. Mount the frame, connect the 3 wires (hot, neutral, ground), screw in the frame screws (3), and turn on the light. Very bright. Though not listed on the box or specs, the 16" model puts out 1,500 lumens and used 24 watts of electricity. The color is cooler that standard incandescent bulbs (about 2,700 K) but is not as cold as a white light (4,000 plus). Overall, I am pleased with the purchase and anticipate many years of use.
