I bought this chandelier for my office. I really wanted an orb chandelier and when I saw this one on overstock I couldn't believe the price! It was significantly lower than a major home decor store that I have seen a similar one at. At first when the chandelier arrived it was missing all of the crystal parts. I called the number that came with it and they shipped out a box of all the crystal parts that I needed. My electrician had some difficulty getting the chandelier up. It is not the greatest quality by far, but I suppose you get what you pay for. You can't really have this light and not put the crystals on it. It doesn't look right without them. The finish is not black, or iron, or bronze. It is actually a black paint with red paint speckles all over it. Kind of weird, but from far away you can't even tell. The instuctions for putting up the crystals are not very clear, so I just improvised and did the best I could until there was no more room to hang any more. It actually came with a ton of extra crystals! Also, the metal that the crystals hang from are a very cheap, thin gold color. Again, from far away you can't tell. Overall, for the price, this light looks pretty good. It actually is a bit fancier than I thought it would be because of all the crystals. You could probably even hang it in a dining room or a foyer and it would look stunning.
