No more "cookie cutter" look for my kitchen. Absolutely beautiful. The picture does not do this chandelier justice. The inner shade has a silver shimmer to it that makes it look dressy. The metal bubble shade is more "black" than "bronze." It was very easy to install. The hardest part was deciding how low to hang it since the crystals hang low. After hanging most of the crystals I realized that there were different lengths but not Overstocks fault, it was me just getting too anxious and not reading the directions :) Very nice look especially for the money!
