Rated 3 out of 5 by Xantos Great design, but... with hints.
Really beautiful lights but...
Tricky to install. With the ceiling plate, once the bracket is fixed to the ceiling, put one screw in loosely then link the other two screw holes with about a foot of stiff wire (or string maybe) while you connect the electrics.
Globes are really fragile, slide the beads in carefully with globe on its side on a soft cushion. Do them singly or you can do a handful at a time if you're careful.
When fitting the globes to the tubes handle them by the top of the neck only, don't even touch the main part of the globe, hold the globe still by the top of the neck and wiggle the tube in.
Bulbs only last a couple of months, I'm now using AC compatible 9mm LEDs, difficult to get hold of but good (diameter must be no bigger than 9mm and they must be AC compatible).
We've just had a transformer failure. After a lot of testing it was because there was a short circuit in the cable to one of the tubes. I've just ordered a more robust transformer with overload and short circuit protection.
Sounds like a lot of hassle and it has been, but the lights are fantastic, a real head turner, so I've been prepared to deal with it!

This light fitting is amazing - a stunning feature in my new kitchen. I loved it in the store, but it look so much better in situ.

I really like the look of these lights and they are very effective, the only criticism I would have is that it is quite unpleasant when you look directly into the light bulbs (which, depending on the height, can be difficult to avoid) as they are extremely bright.

We installed this beautiful light above our kitchen dining table just before Christmas. Virtually everyone who visited our house over the festive period commented on its 'wow factor'. It is simply gorgeous and a real statement piece. Yes, it's a little fiddly to install but straightforward enough to someone who is practical. We used the amber glass beads, which catch the light exquisitely. It is easy to adjust the height of the different bulbs to suit the individual situation. Fabulous product!

A beautiful product. You must be careful to load the crystals one at a time. I did it on the bed so there was plenty of soft padding as the glass globes are fragile. It took a couple of hours to prepare and a careful electrician to install but it looks amazing. We hung in adjustable heights which is very impressive

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColumbusTigee Stunning.....a real feature
We have a high hall ceiling and the installation was not easy, in fact it took three people. The individual globes are very fragile and need to be handled very carefully
. Once installed the light was just what we wanted. It makes a spectacular feature and gives out more light than we expected.

Purchased to go over kitchen table, no problems installing, only be careful as others have mentioned as glass bulbs very delicate and will shatter if handled too roughly.. Only complaint is that the noise from the transformer is too loud, and will no doubt become very annoying over a length of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nosila139 Stunning light fitting
Absolutely stunning once installed. I have to admit it did take some time to put the beads into the globes and fit the globes to the main fitting but it was well worth it. We did break one of the globes when trying to fit it to the main fitting but
John Lewis came up trumps supplying a replacement!
