Hello welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** will be happy to assist you today. It is most common with chandeliers and other light fixtures to only have 2 wires, both black. There is one thing you can do and would involve a multimeter to check continuity between the wires and the bulb socket. If you have one I could tell you what to check, otherwise, you can just connected the two wires into your box and polarity does not matter.
