I fell in love with a similar chandelier but it was about 10x the price, way out of my budget. I was determined to find the look for less. I couldn't believe how much this chandelier looks like the expensive one. I was a little nervous with the purchase, not sure on the quality but was pleasantly surprised when the chandelier arrived! It was much larger than I thought but its the perfect scale for my dining room which had 9' ceilings. There was more than enough wire/chain to hang it at an appropriate height from the table. It was a little challenging hanging all the crystals (which I am not sure are real but look great). The instructions were difficult to understand, I used the picture online for a guide. I love the way it looks and gives the room a lot of light!
