by FunnyGirl2 Nice addition to the window
I wanted something pretty to add to my lovely curtains (also from Penney's). They are beautiful. Make sure that you measure the window before ordering. I accidentally ordered too long of a rod. I unscrewed the ends and put them on a shorter rod that I had but I accidentally banged one end on the floor and broke a piece out of the ball. The good news is that the whole thing stayed intact except the small part that broke out so I could simply turn it to the wall and no one knows. I would purchase them again but know that it is glass and not just a shiny finish.

This is a beautiful curtain rod, and I think the finials make it look so classy. It really has a vintage, elegant look. I ordered three rods (two smaller size, one medium) for my living room and family room. The cracked mercury glass finials do feel a bit delicate, you certainly wouldn't want to drop them, but it just adds the perfect, unique touch to my home. The gold color is a pale, subtle gold- not shiny or brassy at all. The rod has a matte finish. Overall, once hung, the rod feels sturdy and there was only the slightest, slightest sad in the middle. We haven't hung our curtains up yet but the rod feels like it will be plenty sturdy to support them. It took about 15-20 minutes to get one rod hung, which included measuring.

by MCS08 Beautiful Rods but awful quality!
I bought these curtain rods Friday to put in my daughter's room.. My husband was putting the large rod up this afternoon and one of the balls just fell right off the base! Later in the day I was hanging up curtains on the smaller rod and another ball just fell right off the base! Very disappointed for the price I paid for these!! It's a shame because they matched the room so great..

by PattynCincinnati 2 out of 4 was what it took...
I ordered the first set of rods because they were gonna be the perfect match to the decor of my newly decorated room with my Studio Finley Blackout Grommet Top Curtain Panels from JCP (which are beautiful)! However, I received the rods and was excited to get them up but when I pulled out the first set of finials they were not the same look. I then opened up the second set of finials and they both looked the same, but nothing like the first set. I was VERY disappointed in the quality of the finial. I called customer service who was very nice and reordered another set of rods for me. I kept the first set to see if maybe I could get two sets that looked the same. I received the second set, opened up the boxes and found one finial broken, but I did finally come up with 4 similar looks to the finials. I put those on the rods and then returned the sets of unmatched ones. I am now VERY happy with the look , but just had to order extra to get the finials to match. That is why I gave it 3 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spotsy Nicely designed product for different styles.
I looked at several curtain rods on many websites for valances (also Royal Velvet) in the living room and dining room. The Royal Velvet Anette curtain rods are perfect! They have a nice modern, yet transitional look. Works well with silver and gold accessories in the rooms. The only dislike I have is the sizes. The rods were available in 24"-48" which I needed for 2 dining room windows. I had to go to the 48"-86" size for the living room, but only needed rods about 4 inches longer than the 24-48 inch size. Not a big problem, but I wish they was a size between the two.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SavvyShopper49 Disappointed/ Returned Rods
I purchased the light gold, Anette rods in two sizes, but I am returning both of them. The glass portion of the finials were silvery in color and DID NOT MATCH the metal bases of the finials nor the curtain rods. The rods were darker than depicted in the photos. Worse of all, the glass portion of the finials are not securely attached to their metal bases. It appears that they would, at some point, fall off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Newportshopper1 This curtain rod is tasteful and elegant!
The rod is in a subtle, misty, matt gold finish which adapts well with brass and nickel finishes nearby. The finials are beautiful glass balls that look like they have an antiqued or crackled finish on them, making them adaptable and elegant but contemporary and understated at the same time. The rod looks much more expensive than it is and it was a great solution for hanging curtains in the master bedroom suite. I was thrilled with it.
