Rated 2 out of 5 by deepjoyroy Helene ceiling lights
Bought two of these online, for home delivery. Arrived on time and in good packaging, with good degree of bubble wrapping inside the boxes for each individual glass piece and all were intact.
In principle a very good idea for a product, design wise. However ahead of purchasing new buyers should be aware of the practicalities of attaching the two parts is fiddly. Only an issue when putting up and changing bulbs.
We have a 15W energy saver bulb in place and it fits fine with a lovely pattern shadowed above on the ceiling.
However the overall rating is two stars on the basis that one of the chandeliers is not completely circular and is slightly wonky leading to imbalance. It therefore looks a bit funny and the ceiling shadow is off centre, which is a further clue pointing to there not being something right with the product.
Having purchased numerous products over the years from JL, and being a stickler for quality and finish (otherwise referred to by my girlfriend as 'you're being a bit OCD'), am rather disappointed with this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Susancatobrien Beautiful once you get it fitted
A really lovely pendant shade, even nicer in the home than on display. Very tricky to get the clasps together to put both pieces together would recommend a hook rather that the clips that is used. Dreading the bulb going as I will have to take it apart again. Nevertheless a real pleasure to look at and the glass makes a lovely reflection around the hallway as I have two lights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MinnieDean1981 Good once we managed to get it up
This shade will only take the bulb type shown on the box. No glass pendants broken, all in tact - great packaging. A little fiddly to install as I had put the shade together, best keep both parts separate when fixing it to the flex. Bulb brightness is a little dim but still looks pretty when on.

Arrived and instead of being a lovely pale good as other reviewers described, the gold is rusty all over. Will be returning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gilly588284 loved this ceiling shade
I ordered this shade hoping it would suit our newly decorated bedroom - and it did! The quality is of a very high standard and I was really pleased with the glass droplets (not acrylic, like some). At first I thought it had to be attached to the ceiling, and was confused as there were no fitting components. However, upon a visit to John Lewis in Reading, I realised that it is meant as a shade and should hand accordingly. I would definitely recommend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lindak51 Lovely light fitting
Really pleased with this light. Looks more expensive than it was. My husband tells me it was quite complicated to fit, but I only saw the end result which was very good!

This is an excellent product looks great when lit with reflection on ceiling, only problem is fitting the bulb. There needs to be a slightly larger version if possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluebell2014 Pretty light, great value!
Recently purchased this light for our hallway. It's a pretty pale champagne gold colour which makes it look almost antique. We have a Victorian house so it works really well. The glass pendants give off a pretty light effect on ceiling and walls if used with a clear bulb.
