This is a big beautiful chandelier! I have wanted one for quite a while but everything I liked was well over a thousand dollars. I came across this one and decided that I would try it. Beware - there is A LOT of assembly required. The metal arms are not even connected. My husband assembled the structure/base part in about an hour and a half, and he's very handy. Took another 30 minutes to hang it, and then it took about 2 hours to hang all of the crystals. Every single crystal is a separate piece...this is a time consuming project. Instructions are awful. You basically need to print the picture and use it as a pattern but you can really arrange the crystals however you'd like. The connection pieces are a bit flimsy so you'll need to be careful when you're dusting this fixture. The end result is beautiful. The crystals sparkle and they are large. I didn't care for the flat black paint on the metal so I took bronze craft paint and a sponge paint brush and very lightly brushed it over the metal (before hanging the crystals). It looks SO much better! This is really a gorgeous fixture for the money...looks like it cost much, much more!
