I regret that I have to give Overstock a bad review, but I want to be honest about my opinion of this chandelier so other people might not be convinced by all the 5-star reviews. I was disappointed with this chandelier. All the glowing reviews gave me confidence to purchase, but when I unpacked it, I was really disappointed. The biggest difference between the photo and the reality is the sheerness of the shade. I understood that the shade was made of embroidery thread strings, but I had hoped they would be more closely strung together creating only a semi-sheer effect. The reality is that the shade is very, very see through and what you see on the inside is the shiny cheap looking silver finish fixture. It took me half an hour just to unpack it and about 40 minutes to put all the crystals on the thing. I was hoping once all the pieces were in place, I'd like it better, but I didn't. It still looked cheap because of the super see-through shade. The gossamer effect I wanted isn't there. It's just see-through strings. I didn't bother to install it. I disassembled it and will be returning it. I love Overstock, but this one was a miss for me.

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It's a creamy white rather than true white, but the color is nice.
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The chrome/silver chandelier surface is very shiny and cheap looking.
  • How accurate was the on site description of the product? It's accurately described.
