weight limit toggle bolt

I want to swag
a chandelier that must weigh 50 to 60 lbs.into a ceiling that I think is drywall. The 1/4 inch toggle bolt suggest a wight limit of 50 lbs. Does anyone think a 3/8 in toggle bolt will hold the unit securely?
Thanks Ron

I doubt that a toggle holding that much weight will be adequately supported by a 1/2" sheetrock ceiling.

Is there a joist near where you what to attach the swag?
