We opted to put the 14 globe light fixture in without a professional and I wanted to say it can be done but you really have to know what you are doing and follow the instructions. Items that could help the next person:
- make sure your ceiling can hold the weight. This is nearly 50 lbs and Molly’s don’t mean a hill of beans if the Sheetrock gives out. We braced from above and added a box to the joists to mount this to.
- check the housings before you put the cords in. One of ours was loose and we nearly had a heart attack when we discovered it at the end of the process (easy fix so no worries but we could have saved ourselves the momentary agony)
- have a good plan for keeping the cords detangled before you start. They tangle really easily
- get the cords to the length or near final length before working on connecting the wiring. The company sends the cords really long so you have plenty of length to work with
- at the same time, don’t mess up the length as you literally cannot pull it back out if you go too short
- wear gloves while working with the plate and be gentle with it. We accidentally hit something in the process of hanging it and put a small dent in it. Barely noticeable but it didn’t have to happen and the finger smudges came out with a little work.
- the hardest part was getting the mounting screws to the right spot on the plate - we were 20 ft up and no good way to see them from that position. If we could do it over I would attach thread, yarn, or tape to them and thread them through the holes.
Overall it was totally worth it - it’s a gorgeous light and we are thrilled with how it looks.
I hired an electrician to install this chandelier and he was able to install it without any problems. It's very beautiful and my wife is pleased with my purchase. I never fill out these reviews, but I was so happy with them, and I've appreciated comments that have helped me in the past!
We love the look of this light! The style looks great over our table, and we love to see it everyday. Lighting Shopper was super helpful, I asked if they could do a custom bracket and they got us one in just over a week! The install wasn’t bad at all, just make sure you have studs to mount it to as it is very heavy. We love it!
I was nervous making such a large online order from a company I wasn’t familiar with. But it was so worth it! The light came so quickly in probably 7 days! It was packaged wonderfully. My Electrician husband did put a tougher bracket on the back so we could put it on a cable lowering system. I’m beyond pleased with this light it is a jaw dropper!!
We installed this beautiful chandelier on slanted ceiling. Just as the picture showed, couldn't be happier with my selection!
Very good purchase, very responsive company.
This is a beautiful chandelier. I read some of the reviews and painted the canopy ceiling white and it works! These lights Are dimmable. You need to buy a CFL/LED Dimmer to be able to dim the lights (we found this at Home Depot). A regular dimmer won't work with these LED lights. Request and watch the video and remember it is doable! The video was a big help. The light is heavy, and its a stunner! We used the soft lights, since we found the bright white too nuclear.
Beautiful chandelier. The glass balls are heavy, well-made and offer good light. The instructions were a bit lacking, but I contacted the store and they were very helpful. Would recommend hiring a professional to install, and a big ladder!
Gorgeous chandelier! We are so happy with this purchase. It took a couple of days to put together and connect...but was so worth it.
Beautiful and stunning. I also bought two single pendants for the vanity.
Very high quality and looks awesome. If you have an area that needs depth from both upper & lower floors this fits the need to the T. Best part is I picked it and my wife loves it!!
Product arrived promptly and looks exactly as we had hoped. Easy to put together and install . Globes are heavier than anticipated. We decided not to hang over stairwell as originally planned as the space really needed more than 7 but not as many as 14. Since we liked the fixture and did not want to deal with returning, we just found a spot for in our bedroom. Now it’s the first thing I see each morning :-). Great product. Would recommend to anyone.
I love the look of this light! Although I will say that it did take a great deal of preparation to install. I think it would be greatly helpful if the company would also share the video and additional instructions I received after contacting them with every sale.
I am sooooooo happy with my purchase! The chandelier is sooooooo beautiful and elegant looking!!!!!
Beautiful chandelier light. Drowns you in warm light upon entering the condo. A true show stopper.

It took awhile for the electrician to put it together but it looks so nice!!! Bulb replacement is very simple. It is beautiful!
It cost 8 days to arrive, but completely worth it. Looks more beautiful than the photo and the crystal ball really big.
This Chandelier is beautiful. Solid, quality materials. Very heavy, professional installation is a must! It’s perfect for a staircase.
Love it! looks great. Amazing quality. The base is very reflective, we painted white to match the ceiling. The glass is looks very modern and it comes with soft white AND bright white LEDs. Highly recommended.
Well made, quality product. This is really a statement piece in our entryway. It is beautiful!
Very pretty and heavy chandelier, but installation is easy. We ordered the 36 lights, the crystal ball is a little bigger than I originally thought.
Love, love, love it!!! Usually don’t order things like this online but I am so pleased. The style is great and the finish is perfect. I am more than satisfied!

I promise you it is worth it! I was so worried spending that kind of money on a light and it not being what i expected or something going wrong. -all worries melted away as soon as i saw it hung! Buy it, you will thank me! Also, you can arrange them how you want them-higher or lower.
