To find the max weight of the chandelier, we will set the cords to their maximum allowable tension given, 1660N, and then sum the forces vertically. Let W be the weight of the chandelier. Let T be the tension in the cord. Therefore; $(\uparrow +) \sum \overrightarrow{F}_{y} =0$ $-W+sin(45^{\circ})*T=0$ $W=sin(45^{\circ})*T$ $W=sin(45^{\circ})*1660N$ $W\approx1170N$
