John Lewis Easy-to-fit Annette Ceiling Shade
A great purchase
I bought this ceiling shade for my living room. It took a while to remove all the individual packaging from the glass balls as it has been packaged very well to avoid any damage, but it was worth it. It it a very pretty ceiling shade.

Danger if heavy shade!
John Lewis product description says,"Is a ceiling shade that can be fixed to an existing pendant without an electrician."
But some of the customer reviews say it is a heavy shade. If so, dangerous to use a standard plastic ceiling rose - use a modern detachable ceiling rose made to support heavier light fittings.

This is an absolutely stunning shade. One of the pendants was broken on arrival but is being sorted for me. Great Service.

Beautiful addition to my dining room!
I wasn't sure what to expect from a glass beaded lampshade but it is beautiful and looks much more glamerous than any lampshade has a right to! I would recommend this product to anyone looking for something simple yet classy to enhance any room!

Even my mother-in-law like them..
... and she is very difficult to impress! Just put up two of these in our newly decorated landing. Delighted with the style, quality and ease of fitting. A very well packaged product with spare glass beads. Purchased 2 and there was a broken bead on both - think this is simply the law of averages rather than an manufacturing fault. Took no time to replace.

Annette Ceiling Shade
I received this shade in perfect order and it looks absolutely beautiful. It arrived this morning as I was advised. It was in perfect working order (as in no broken glass droplets). However I only received one extra glass droplet and think maybe you may need more as I can imagine it to be a bit fiddly to clean. The only fault I have is I don't have a drop chain or wire as pictured above so looks slightly smaller than I visioned as it is directly on the ceiling. However had it been on a drop chain it would look the way I expected. So the only thing I could ask for is that there was a slight bigger one so it looks a bit more dynamic in the space (thinking of getting a drop chain). It measures 22.5 cm drop and maybe a 30 cm drop and the diameter is 23 cm and again say 28-30 cm. Love it, it reflects beautifully even on a dull day like today, it adds glamour to my room and looks so much more expensive than the acrylic ones that I have seen and more than I expected it too. I can highly recommend. Excellent value for money!!! Thank you JL you always do deliver quality products.

Can only summarise points made by others
1. It's quite heavy. Make sure the light cable will take the strain
2. It takes 15-20 mins to unpack pairs of strands from the bubble pack wallets, per fitting.
3. I thought they were incredibly well packed, however, I had a large bead broken on 1 (of 2) fittings, but the spare was deceptively easy to replace.
4. They look classy on our long Edwardian landing, throw out lots of light with halogen bulbs, and show a pleasing light pattern on the ceiling.
Downside? My wife is so pleased she wants another one!

Bought this light for our spare bedroom, it looks absolutely lovely. Well packaged with no breakages, well worth the time taken to unwrap it. John Lewis at their best once again.
