Even better than it looks
 from Cupertino CA,  Jun 20, 2011

As others have mentioned, it's pretty hard to put together. But it's worth it. My wife wanted a fancy chandelier for our new entryway and settled on this picture. I was afraid it might look "plastic", and also that it would just fade into the white walls surrounding it. I was wrong on both counts. From the floor below, it's incredibly sparkly - I would never know it wasn't real crystal. It also looks gorgeous against the white walls, especially with the lights on. It actually looks better in our house than in any of the photos. It's close to impossible to photograph such beautiful light effects. A few megatives - it requires thought and patience to put together. I'm an engineer, and my daughters are great with arts & crafts, and it still took us 3 hours. It was actually a fun family project, but be forewarned. Also, some of the parts looked dirty coming out of the box. Everything was well wrapped and packed, but we still felt the need to clean smudges and filmy residue off some pf the parts. The last thing to be aware of is that this doesn't come with bulbs. This may be a good thing, since you can then choose high efficiency fluorescent bulbs or prettier "candle flame" incandescent bulbs. We chose the latter - they use more power; but we don't leave it on all day long (it's more a decoration than a primary light source), and they they look stunning. Overall I"m quite happy with it. Sometimes we just look up at it go "wow - what a pretty light".
