This is REAL Crystal people! That original price tag is no joke! This is a reproduction of a much more expensive chandelier (over $1.5K for that one) that looks virtually the same to the untrained eye. High quality, height adjustable, clean and modern with just a touch of traditional with the octagonal faceted crystals. A+, the best buy so far from Overstock and the most beautiful thing in my home! :-)One thing, make sure the junction box that you hang this from is 3.5" in diameter or under. I had a 4" diameter one originally and had to change it out for a smaller one. It was worth it though!
