I really am glad that I purchased this light fixture. It was easy to put together but it does take a while to put on all the crystals. It looks more expensive than it was. We saved a lot of money compared to a local furniture store that had a similar light. One thing that I think would of sent it over the top was if the crystals had be faceted; since they're just smooth drops that don't sparkle as much. Also the shade had dried yellow glue on it that took some time to clean.
