Rated 5 out of 5 by traditionaltastes Absolutely as expected
This chandelier is beautiful and looks wonderful in my dining room. The packaging for shipping was terrific and it arrived in perfect condition. It is timeless and elegant, and as others have said, with a dimmer switch the sparkle and lighting are absolutely perfect.

Beautiful chandelier. BUT bronze is really much closer to black. I absolutely needed a true bronze not a "sort of black". Very disappointed to have to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gildthelily Gorgeous, elegant chandelier!
I love this chandelier! It has just the right amount of sparkle without being over the top. The delicate branches and leaves burst out into the "flower" crystals. If you are needing a little something special in your home, this one is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyBuyers A beautiful addition to our dining area
The chandelier was sent all assembled and ready to install. The packaging was itself an engineering marvel, suspending the fixture within a metal framework and then placing it within the box. It is not a heavy fixture which makes it easier for one person to install if necessary.
Originally we wanted to hang a more traditional fixture over our farm table. Instead we chose this one and we are so happy we did. Everyone who comes in immediately comments on how great it looks. That validates the fact that we made the right decision.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ExcitedShopper Beautiful Chandelier But...
The Claire 9-Arm Grande Chandelier is beautiful but I was so disappointed once I saw the one I ordered in person. The picture online did not properly represent the actual product. The Etruscan Gold was not as brilliant and has a more dull brownish finish - I was looking for a little glam in the dining room. Also, the online picture makes the chandelier appear as if the diameter is greater than 29". The arms do not stretch as wide. So, I sent it back because of the color and got the Antique Silver one instead and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bocachic This product looks elegant
We purchased two small chandeliers in bronze. They look really great in our master bath. The electrician was blown away with the packaging. Much more expensive chandeliers do not have this kind of packaging and arrive damaged. Not Ballard, they arrived in perfect order and are stunning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RepeatBallardCustomer Great product; poor instructions
We love this chandelier. Definitely worth the price. Only complaint relates to the poor assembly instructions. I bet whoever wrote them never actually tried to follow them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luv2Stage It's a different look.
I purchased the 3-arm chandelier and love the look of it in my foyer. The curve of the arms are not perfectly symmetrical with one another so I had to play with it a bit but love that it's a traditional look but with a twist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by madaboutBallards This chandelier looks so sophistocated!
This is a gorgeous chandelier. I had already purchased 3 of the Claire vanity lights so I suspected this would be just as beautiful if not more so. And I wasn't disappointed. I got it in the oil-rubbed bronze and it looks rich and sophisticated. Looks fabulous in my dining room. Thanks so much for such wonderful products. Always look forward to getting the catalogs.

This is a darling chandelier. I have it in my daughter's bedroom. It is good value for the money. A bit poorly made but look at the price. The electrician broke one of the branches when he hung it. I just wove it back in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonnielt This chandelier exceeded all expectations.
We understand why this chandelier has been a best-seller. It was made for our home in design and quality. One must put it on a dimmer to bring out the sparkle of the crystals. The color of the gold finish matches all other lighting fixtures in the great room perfectly. The vining of the fixture it unique. We love this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DoctorNancy Elegant appearance but needs refinement
Purchased for one of our guest bathrooms along with a set of the matching 2 light vanity fixtures to compliment two sinks in this room. Packing and crate was secure ensuring no broken or bent parts. The antique silver finish actually softened the brushed nickel cabinet hardware and faucets. This is a very inexpensive light fixture so expect materials to be what they are, however, the finished product is elegant enough and provides adequate light. All our rooms have high ceilings but this bathroom ceiling is low at 8 ft. The chandelier needed to be significantly re-engineered. My husband removed the entire chain, manipulated one link to a secure position in-order to effectively attach the fixture to the plate on the ceiling so our 6 foot guests could walk under it.

I wanted to update my dining room without replacing everything. I had a lot of brass so wanted to stay in the same family of metal. The gold tone chandelier was a perfect solution. It really looks beautiful and helped to renovate a dining room and bring it up to date at a reasonable price. I get compliments on the chandelier all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovepretty So pretty!
The antique silver color has just a titch of soft gold/yellow in it making it a perfect complement for those who still have a bit of gold hardware (hinges, door knobs, handles, etc.). I am very pleased and plan on ordering the small one for my powder room. It is very different than the majority of what is out there in lighting. I love it. I did have to do a little tweaking and bending to straighten it up a bit, but nothing too serious. Do your tweaking before the electrician comes to hang it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by favsource Even better than the picture!
I have been looking at this chandelier in the catalog for a few months and finally decided to order it. What a wonderful purchase, so glad I went ahead with my instincts. The picture is what drew my eye, but the actual piece is astounding when installed! Couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 12345abc A bargain!
I hung this chandelier in a 9' hallway going to the master bedroom and bath. It is the perfect size for a standard hallway. I absolutely love it. It has a touch of glamour but not overdone. I got it on sale and it has been a true bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FaninVA Graceful and at the same time a touch of glam.
We replaced a ceiling fan with 3 downlights in our bedroom with this darling little chandelier. Love it to pieces, although the Etruscan Gold is darker than the gold I had imagined. It's on a dimmer, so we probably won't get any cute little shades. But maybe ...

Rated 3 out of 5 by PL2465 lovely, but lopsided
This chandelier is very pretty with lots of detail and facets reflecting light everywhere. Unfortunately, we didn't see until it was installed that one of the six arms droops down lower and at a different angle than the others, giving it the effect of looking crooked.

Once I saw this chandelier I could not get it off my mind and knew I had to have it. I have a large vaulted ceiling bedroom and purchased the silver color. It is just perfect and elegant. It makes such a statement in my bedroom. It was exactly what I expected and not disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYer Picture perfect Chandelier
I have been following this item for 2 years. Once I remodeled my kitchen and dining room, I knew this Chandelier would be perfect. It is beautiful, elegent and when the crystals shine on the lights in the room we have rainbows on the table and the wall. It is definitely the "WOW" factor in my home. P.S. I purchased the 3 arm one for my entrance way into my apartment. It is the first thing people see entering my home. They all ask "where did purchase this" I tell them Ballards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spoiled1 This chandelier looks awesome
After I had it put up everyone who comes into my house says how awesome it looks..I totally love it and so does everyone else, my husband was away at the time that i received it and when he got home he was floored on how great it looks, it goes with our furniture so well, our furniture is dark so i had to get the darker chandelier, and i'm so happy i bought that one, i'm thinkning about getting another one for the den in a differant color. I did alot of research on them, and looking in stores and online i couldn't find any one's that i liked and that was priced reasonable.. i'm very happy with the chandelier that i bought, i totally recommend it.

I've been looking for a petite chandelier for our reading/guest room. This is a perfect addition to add a little glamour and sparkle. I ordered this in the bronze color and added the linen document brown shades to it. It looks fantastic!

Many other companies carry similiar chandeliers at a much higher price point. Adds a lot to a dining room and the Etruscan Gold blends well with other finishes.
