The chandelier is a little challenging to assemble, but my husband, son and I put it together in about 7 hours. It was due to all the small balls and hanging parts. It was definitely worth the time involved because the fished product is absolutely beautiful. Although it was time consuming to assemble, I decided to purchase another one for my dining area with very large ceilings. It’s gorgeous and well worth it.
I love this chandelier. It makes a statement in our foyer. I paired it with 100 watt candelabra base LED bulbs made by GE (2700 Kelvin Color) from Lowe's and its super bright. My ceiling is about 17.5 feet and I used the entire chain that came with the fixture. I deducted a star because the cord was shorter than the chain. I had to purchase longer clear silver stranded lamp cord from Home Depot and rewire the fixture.
