Rated 4 out of 5 by MsJones Recommend with Caution
The finials seem to be well made and have a good weight to them, they are also very pretty. I decided to return them because they are HUGE, I mean in diameter and height, almost the size of a baseball. My walls aren't very tall and so they looked gaudy and silly when up. I think this is right for a certain style of home, but not mine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by designfrenzy One of my favorite things about Anthropologie is their hardware. They always have a unique selection of beautiful pieces but their hardware is always hard to use. From lacking of mounting hardware or screws to difficult to use nuts, bolts and hanging hooks that fall off I don't always feel like I'm getting what I paid for. I wanted to be able to use these finials, but unfortunately they're been made so that they can only be used with Anthro curtain rods. The bolts on the end are much larger than the more standard size that accompanies rods made at three other popular furniture/hardware stores. With Anthro's eclectic selection of hardware you'd think their products would be designed so you can mix and match pieces but that's not the case with these. It doesn't even specifically say in the description, but I think the only curtain rod they would work with is the smithery .75" rod. They're definitely too small for the 2" rod. So I would recommend these if you're using that exact combination because they're very pretty but if you need a finial for any other rod look elsewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bijoux Beautiful product but does not come in sets of 2
Recently received my finials which are very beautiful & well made. On the website it says they come in sets of 2. This is not accurate as the price is per finial. So, when ordering you need to keep that in mind otherwise you will not have enough. I ordered 4 of these thinking I would receive 8 finials in total since 4 sets of 2 would be 8. I was 4 short. I did call customer service & had to order more. Luckily they were still in stock! The customer service rep was very nice & waived the shipping which was technically the right thing to do seeing as I already paid shipping on my previous order. I think the price is a bit much as these finials are about the same size as the average Anthro door knob which obviously comes with a knob on each end (2 knobs total) for about $38-$40. Needless to say it all worked out well & I can't wait to get the other finials so I can complete my look. These are stunning & fit my room perfectly!
