This fixture is lovely and just as I pictured it, actually have this in my kitchen window (it doesn't hang down near as far as the one in the picture, which was my choice) on a dimmer switch - plenty of light and definitely a showstopper. Some people love it, some shake their heads and say, "it's SO YOU!" and that's okay too. Mechanical Engineer Handsome Son installed this, and it took him a good while and quite a bit of muttering about the quality and overseas manufacture -- he was not impressed, thus I give this sparkly bit glam only four stars. But you know I just love it!
