I have mixed feelings about this light fixure. Once it is installed it is absolutely beautiful, but I feel that for the price you pay the quality is not the greatest. The crystals are heavy but not true 'crystal'. (although I did not expect them to be. The price would have tripled) My real complaint is that the crystals are on clear string and you literally just lay them over the pendant bar. Nothing to connect them, just hang them across. Seemed a little cheap to me. (one reviewer must not have had the bar level and all the crystals slid right off.) No one else notices, but I just expected something else I guess. Everyone that comes over loves it. It really is a gorgeous piece above the kitchen bar.
