Let me start off by saying this. I sifted through hundreds of chandeliers for my boutique. This one caught my eye for many reasons. One being how pretty it appeared in the photo. It was such a nightmare when I pulled it out of the box. My boutique is very high end, and wanted something to catch the eyes of the passerby, unfortunately. For the reality of things. This item is so beyond cheap. It comes in a large box stuffed full of paper. When you remove the paper you see a white flimsy carcas like white cage that is part of the base. When you keep digging in this box of junk. you begin to realize that you have to string over 200 glass "charms" that are held together by these cheap manilla folder prong like things.. which by the way do not fit into the crystal thing all of the way so you will have to rig it to stay on. It took me (no joke) 3.5 hours to try and connect them all together- good luck figuring out the directions which look more like egyption chicken scratches for drawings. I made up my own pattern which looked way better than it would've had I attempted the actual "plans". The middle rod of the bas that holds the 3 cheap portions together does not stay screwed so I may and quite possibly, you, may have a chandelier that will hit the floor sooner than later. I will also say this. First when I opened the box and took stuff out, I shoved it back into the box and was ready to return and on the phone with overstock only to find out that once you open the box, you cannot return the item. How am I supposed to know the quality of the item if I do not open the box. So, that is when I proceeded to put together this cheap atrocity nightmare together. Oh and by the way. I didn't install it in my store. NO WAY. Save yourself a heartache and find another. this one is an epic fail in all areas.
