Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bronze light not like main picture I am writing with respect to the "Oil Rubbed Bronze" finish. The metal portion is indeed a oil rubbed bronze color (like an aged dark brown) and the shells are a medium to dark gray. It is packed very well and arrived quickly (about 3 days from order to delivery) but I was hoping for the off-white shells as pictured so I will be returning it. September 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Still Love it! I bought this chandelier for my breakfast room/kitchen table about a year ago and I still absolutely love it! It gives such a beautiful warm glow when lit and is lovely even during the day when it's not turned on. It was a bit of a challenge for my husband to get it hung himself, but I have absolutely no regrets!! September 4, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by This product is beautiful but... I'm using satin nickel with burnished gold in the Master and (oil rubbed bronze door handles). The mirror is silver leaf / gold leaf antiqued. So I was hoping this mirror that was advertised antique gold - and showing it heavily antiqued would blend. I'm in FL so the shell was perfect. Problem is: I purchased it in October and it wasn't hung until last week - it doesn't match. The color is a loud copper - not an antique gold. The box it comes in is huge and very heavily packed so I never inspected it. I'm going to try and find a brown antique gel that has a slight sheen (not flat) and see if I can tone it down. But I will still see the metal inside the shells. April 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic accent to foyer Loves the way the chandelier presents itself when you first walk in the door. Casts some interesting shadows along with providing plenty of light in the foyer. It gives off a nice warm glow to all that enter our home. March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spectacular I purchased this light after many hours of research online for a shell fixture. It is hanging in my bedroom from a cathedral ceiling and is the showpiece of the room. The gold is an aged color, the shells are mother of pearl, and the lights are suffiecient to brighten the room. Packaging is great - very secure and tight. Easy to install by a professional- a bit heavy for one to do on their own. Worth the price and resonable compared to other lights I looked at. November 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better Than Expected! This is really a very beautiful product with lots of detail and well crafted. What the product description failed to mention is how pretty the shells reflect pinkish/gold patterns of light throughout the room. Truly a heirloom quality product. November 21, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice fixture but takes effort The fixture looks nice but some of the strands are less curved and because of the loft bedroom it is noticeable. One can't tell looking up but it is not symmetrical or even the way all the strands are positioned. It does provide a beautiful warm glow to the high space and ultimately glad I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Chandelier for my Dining Room - Note differences I mention in my review - from the pic This chandelier was intended for my LR, but I am putting it in my DR instead. The shells are NOT yellowish like the photo shown with the blue background - they are a TRUE OFF-WHITE (Cream) and the gold is not as dark/dull. It is not a shiny GOLD, but a true matted gold color which has more vibrancy to it. In the photo it appears almost "wrought iron" color. I highly recommend this chandelier! :) I've gotten a ton of compliments on it!! May 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful! Very well packaged to prevent any damage during shipping. Fast delivery. Love the way it looks hanging above the stairs to our second floor. May 2, 2013
