I had read some reviews about these lamps prior to purchasing and they were all positive. I waited a while to purchase because I couldn't make up my mind between this lamp and another. When I realized this product was "out of stock" I panicked. I kept trying the site and luckily I was able to secure a couple. That made me even more excited to get them! Knowing how popular they were made them the prize I was looking for. These lamps are over the top. They are really heavy once you put all the crystals on. Only thing I might change is for the base to be a little more chic, maybe brushed nickel with a little straighter stem. Otherwise, these lamps bring the bling I was looking for.
