Rated 5 out of 5 by slwiest Exceeded Expectations
My home is French Country, and I was looking for a large lighting fixture for my Foyer. The 9-arm Grande Claire Chandelier is perfect for the space. It was the best lighting fixture for the money -- an absolute great buy. It also came perfectly packaged and ready to hang. It looks beautiful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LuLuS A " little" disappointed
This is my second Petite Claire Chandelier. My first is in the Etruscan Gold. They are the perfect size for a bedroom, bath or any smaller room. When I ordered this in the Antique Silver. I thought it would be a little more "silvery". It is really more of a gray color. It was for our Master bedroom and it does look fine. Just not what I expected in color. But I do love the look of this fixture and did not want to return it.

I love this little chandelier. I have it hanging over a small dining area and it fits perfectly. When it is on it really sparkles. Would definitely recommend this size for anyone looking at hanging it in a kitchen or small dining area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by klm2222222 I loved it except it arrived with one broken piece
I chose not to return such a large item and was able to put broken piece in a place where hopefully I am only one that will notice. Still a big let down! I hope Ballard will give some kind of credit?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RedLady You will not be disappointed
I love it! I ordered the gold and it's beautiful. My only suggestion is to be careful when/ if you want to move/ reposition any of the crystals - the wire is tight and one of mine snapped off. But it's not even noticeable because there are so many. You will not be disappointed.

I already had the petite chandelier in my kitchen and now wanted the larger one to replace my dining room fixture. Looks fabulous and also purchased light shades to give it a different look.

This is a beautiful chandelier. Its an amazing bargain for the quality and WOW that it provides. The color is just what i had hoped for as it can go either in the silver or even "gold" direction. It can blend styles and provide an updated look. LOVE it!

This is a beautiful fixture. I hung it over my kitchen table and it changed the whole feeling in the room. A beautiful product, very well priced -- I would actually say inexpensive! It was packed well for shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MFFL41 Excellent product at a great price!
This chandelier is absolutely stunning! We recently downsized to a townhome and have been trying to make it our "own". This chandelier has been a great step in making a real statement in our dining room. The look is elegant but yet not stuffy . . . it has a playfulness about it with the freeform limbs with crystals. I couldn't be happier with our beautiful new fixure. We are looking forward to seeing it sparkle this holiday season!

Love.. love.. love.. this fixture. It is very unique and has great appeal. I have a heavy traffic home and many people comment on how much they like it. It did come with one crystal broken off but I decided to keep it because I even had a hard time finding where it fell off and saw no reason to go through the return process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Light2life Better than pictured!
Hard to believe you can buy a chandelier from a catalog
and it ends up being better than you expected. I was unsure of which finish to choose and the customer service
person was so helpful in describing the finishes to me. She
definitely led me to choose the best finish. It was difficult
to see the finishes on the catalog page or online.
Not long after we received our chandelier, we received a new catalog and it was on sale. I called Ballard and was given a credit, so am a very satisfied customer!

I purchased this for our dining room and it is perfect. Shipping was fast and the packaging protected the fixture well. We did install a dimmer switch and used 40 watt bulbs for the perfect look.

Have it in my 2 story foyer, and it's just perfect. Put a dimmer switch on it, so I can adjust level of light. The glass gems add a bit more sparkle - just perfect!!

This chandelier delivered everything I asked for and more. The color is perfect - an antiqued gold - and it imparts such an elegant ambiance to my dining room. It arrived in perfect condition and to date I am completely satisfied with my purchase.

Before I bought this chandelier I read all the reviews plus to make sure the size would be right I talked to a sales rep. It arrived perfectly and, as others have said, beautifully packed in a cage inside a box. I bought the six light chandelier which is perfect in my entryway. The gold that I chose is not bright but subdued as another purchaser said and exactly what I wanted. I love just putting it on to admire it! Also, it is very similar or the same as fixtures at other web sites but much cheaper!

We were so impressed with the great care taken in packing my purchase! I was concerned when placing the order. It was such a delicate chandelier, I could not imagine it arriving without something being wrong with it. To my delight it arrived standing straight up as if hanging, surrounded by a metal framed cube holding it perfectly in place. Now that it is up the complements have not stopped! thank you

I spent a long time trying to find the right chandelier for my room. The fact that the chandelier is available in different sizes to fit & match in different spaces is great. The packing of the product to protect it, it is very clever.
All that being said, my room now has the complete look I was hoping for. I am super happy with the product!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this chandelier!
Absolutely GORGEOUS! Classic elegance with a modern feel. I have admired the Claire collection for quite a while in the catalog and it is even more beautiful in our home. The 3-arm petite version is stunning over the sunken tub in our master bath. I turn it on every time I enter the room! I am also pleased with the 2 light sconces over each of the vanity sinks. The antique silver matches the brushed nickel fixtures well and the craftsmanship is amazing. The 6-arm in the etruscan gold is perfect in the dining room. SOOOO pleased with these, I am considering yet another for my dressing room! Well done, Ballard. Well done!

Very nice chandelier for the money. Ordered the gold, which not a brassy gold at all but a more brownish gold. Beautiful in my traditional dining room, but would be equally nice with contemporary.

Ordered two of the Petite Claire Chandeliers to go above our island in our newly remodeled kitchen. The product is of great quality, looks beautiful and is the most complimented aspect of our new room. We will be ordering additional chandeliers for other rooms in our home that are currently under construction. The ease of ordering, accuracy of the product description and shipping time are incredible. The price was right too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dealshopper Everything I was loooking for!
Shipped quickly and was protected in a metal frame. Beautiful chandelier! (And I didn't have to assemble it!) I wasn't sure about the color when ordering as I didn't want gold. When I talked to a representative she said to look at the sconce picture as it showed a more true color. It is more of an antique brass, which is what I wanted. Ballard's service and assistance was top rate. This was my first purchase from them and I will go to them first next time when I have a home merchandise item I am looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jannygirl Beautifully unique
I ordered both 6 arm and petite chandeliers thinking I could use both. Very happy with 6 arm chandelier after installed--very unique--could not love it more. Petite one was backordered for some time and when received, we tried every idea we could come up with to use it. It is just as beautiful as the other but is just too much for our small kitchen. My husband keeps wanting me to put it up anyway because he loves it so much. I just can't and I really wish I could fit it into our home. These are not chandeliers seen in every other home. Beautiful!! I have not contacted customer service because of my husband. Alabama Grannie

Rated 5 out of 5 by petuniashops Beautiful, well priced chandelier
This has received numerous compliments from all over; designers, friends, real estate agents and strangers. Paired with the cord cover and a medallion, this makes an elegant statement. Also, very well priced for size. This has been up for 5 years, and i still love it. Will find a place for it in our new home, too. Somewhat difficult to dust, but, what chandelier is not?!

The chandelier is beautiful. The packaging was amazing. I purchased the chandelier for a lake house to hang over the tub in the master bath. It is just stunning. Perfect size, I get lots of compliments my husband loves it and the contractors have even been complimenting on it. Thanks Ballard and thanks for the reviews they helped my decision alot!
