Weight limit for chandelier's chain and extension rods


I am doing a diy chanderlier and I would like to know how strong are the chain and extension rod to hang the chandelier.

I think the electrical box can handle up to 50 lbs.

Hang it from a tree or?? and test it with at least double the weight.

The details of the question are too vague.

Need to know what chain, tubes and mounting hardware you are planning.

Typically the box will let go before the chain, or extension tubing gives out.

If you look at the chain here we can see few if any are welded

But the include this about the chain.
When it comes to deciding upon the metal you wish to use for your chandelier, take note of how heavy your fixture is. While options like brass can be very attractive, they are less stable than tougher metals such as steel. For larger, heavier chandeliers, choosing a steel chain can save you a lot of trouble. If you wish to use brass for larger models, it is highly recommended that you include a steel cable to help support the weight. Make sure you protect your beautiful chandelier with the right support!
