I read every review before purchasing this Chandelier for my daughter's newly decorated bedroom. Some of the reviews mentioned that the crystals were plastic, WRONG, I don't know what Chandelier they got, but it wasn't this one. These are all glass - OK, they aren't 24% lead crystal, but we didn't pay 24% lead crystal prices either. But when the light hits it just so, the prisms give off a rainbow of colors, it's just a beautiful piece. My daughter just loves it. I recently purchased another chandelier for my dressing room and I'm so jealous because it's no where near as beautiful as this one. She won't trade :) I see that this is sold old, no wonder - but if it's ever in stock, you better grab it quick. I will tell you the only piece that is plastic is the center cover, but who cares - it's gorgeous!!!!! You won't be sorry with this, no matter what room you put it in. We used 40w bulbs and it lights up her room beautifully, you can use up to 60W bulbs which would give you 360w of lighting.... Hope this review helps you, like the others helped me.
