Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Andie Nice chandelier wrong description
Frist of all this chandelier is not black, I would say bronze brown, also the crystals are different than the ones on the picture, they don't have the smooth finish and there are 2 crystals for extension not 3. It's 4 light fixture not 5.....so when I put it together I liked it but something almost completely different than picture and description. I think this product needs to be reviewed again. Over all nice product, kind of hard to put it together instructions are not that clear.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JGross I would not recommend this to anyone
This chandelier had very poor instructions and when my husband did finally get it put together it was so flimsy we were afraid it would fall down. We took it back and put our old one back up, which was much better quality.

It is a beautiful fixture and I love that it looks like a designer piece. The only thing I wish it had was some kind of kit so that you could make it into a chandelier.other than that it's a great fixture and I would recommend it to others.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYMOM You get what you pay for....
The light was visually as described, oil rubbed bronze facetted crystals all very lovely, However we have to agree with the other reviews of bad construction and poor quality. My husband put it together and he is a well experienced DIY’er. I had not shared the other reviews with him…. The light was defective, it kept tripping the circuit breaker. Upon de-installation and a thorough inspection we found there was a bent contact inside the bulb socket causing an electrical short which immediately tripped the15 amp breaker. That was corrected by my husband, the light is up and pretty… but next time I’m going to heed you get what you pay for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NikkiJ Still pretty, but not black.
This chandelier is vey pretty, but nothing on this is black. The picture and description say it is, but definitely not! It looks like an oil rubbed bronze or brown color. It is still pretty and excellent for the cost. The directions were pathetic to say the least, but my husband still figured it out:). Overall, we are happy we purchased this light, just wish I would have spray painted it black before he hung it- he wont take it down now, lol. No bulbs are included either.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Daneger Agreeing with other reviewers
Note: This review is critical. I had a challenging experience with the light and it ended up being defective. However, I'm returning the faulty one and buying another just like it (fingers crossed). The product looks pretty good installed, but is simply inexpensive and you get what you pay for.
I agree with the other reviewers. There's not a single black part in this product aside from the black electrical wire insulation. It's a nice medium-dark brown color, which we don't dislike. There are indeed 4 lights, not 5. And only one small crystal (not two) between the metal part and the large crystal.
I'm a very handy guy and found this quite frustrating to assemble/install. You basically build the whole thing on the ground, then hold it in midair to make the electrical connection before finally screwing it to the electrical box. I don't see why they force you to attach the (pure white) fabric shade so soon - it could easily be redesigned to attach after the rigid portion is installed...
Be aware this light requires 4 bulbs with the small threaded bases. I bought bulbs with the large base, and had to take another trip to the store for the right bulbs.
After doing all that, one of the 4 sockets was dysfunctional. (I swapped bulbs between sockets to ensure it wasn't a defective bulb.) Because of the modest price, and since I now know how to build the unit, we're probably going to get another just like it. But this is not a super-high-quality light so don't expect the best. It does look pretty good when up in the air.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Not worth it!!!!!!!!!
I'm a pretty hard core DIY'er and this light fixture was cumbersome (quite honestly a major pain in the butt) to put together. I took it out of the box along with several other lights I was installing and had them staged around the house so I could go right from one to the next to just get the job done....of course I had already thrown the box out to this light by the time I got to install it. The pictures also look a lot better than this does in person. It feels cheap and I'm already looking to replace it with something else. I'd rather throw it away than keep it.
