These pendants are beautiful- I am very happy with this purchase. They arrived quickly and were easy (for my husband) to install. The look is perfect for our tranditional style master bath (beadboard; procelain, ceramic and marble tile). The quality of these fixtures is very good and the polish brass finish is gorgeous. PB may not be the metal finish of choice these days, but it is AOK in my house. I love the way these extension rods seem to snap into place when screwed together- this made the seam very tight and hard to see. Ultimately, we only needed the 16" rod for the proper drop (there is an good selection of rods that ship with this product). There is almost 10" drop between the ceiling mount and the pendant sans extensions. There are detailed specs on the Progress website, if needed.
This mini-pendant is somewhat larger than it appears. The cap has a depth of several inches, add the top cover and the 6"+ shade, and this is a large mini-pendant, an oxymoron. Nevertheless, the metal, finish and glass seem to be quality products compared to most. The sturdy stem comes in 2 lengths of each dimension--12 and 15 inches--very good for tall ceilings.
I bought 3 of these for my kitchen renovation. 2 for over a 5 foot island and one for over the sink. Because of a soffit over the sink I could not use even the shortest rod, but no worries the electrician was able to mount it flush without a rod and it looks great. I thought they were beautiful lights, just the right size for my kitchen but they throw plenty of light. They are well made and the price was right. I couldn't be happier with them. Service was great as well, the lights arrived in 4 or 5 days. I am pleased all the way around.

I love these pendant lights. They are classic in design and very nice quality. They look great in our new kitchen.
