Just wanted to give the people that are comparing this chandelier to an almost identical one at a high end store a tip. I read all the reviews and didn't want to deal with all the crystal assembly needed for this product so instead ponied up the money at the other store. To my dismay...that one needed 2hrs of assembly too. It's just that those crystals screwed in...but there were still a lot & I broke 5 in the process. So just saying, don't let the time you have to put into it effect your decision, as I learned...there is no getting out of it it.
