I paid a little extra for the hand cut crystals. If the crystals were any less in quality they would be plain glass (maybe they are). I also was not expecting to be assembling the ENTIRE chandelier. The frame had to be assembled, then each strand of crystals(?) had to be individually affixed to the frame. The instructions for all this were poor at best and incomplete. It took longer to get then stated. Poor quality Misleading info on the web site Overpriced for what I did get (even at the supposed sale price).
We received the chandelier without instructions so called ATG. They were on the phone immediately to th4e manufacturer to get the instruction e-mailed to me. Had to wait a while for the chandelier, over a month, with the shipping date changing 3 times, but the result was fantastic. 2 days after getting the shipment, my wife and I hung the chandelier. We have 4 other Moder lights and this one just outshines them all, just like it is supposed to. If you have ever hung crystal chandeliers before, this one is a snap. the worst part is making sure to get everything straight so it hangs properly, they really should do a better job of this at the factory as the parts that usually are bent out of true is the downward stems, and those suckers are difficult to bend without scratching when it's in your home. Otherwise, the light went up with the most time spent hanging the series of crystals. My wife loved the light it put out (won't need the heat on in the winter) and how the crystals just shined. Everyone who has seen it loves this light.
