Overall this is an elegant chandelier. I did not gve it 5 stars as the pieces that hold the actual bulbs are wrapped in a black beading that has a clear wire holding it together. This is something that is visible, even when you are not standing in close proximity. I think when the light is on it will be much less noticeable. I would just rather have a black wire, rather than the clear, so it doesn't stand out. The crystals and shade are pretty, and overall it is a great value for the money.
