6-piece Lit Mercury Glass Ornaments by Valerie
Beautiful when they work
These are really pretty and stunning when they actually work. These work about 3 hours on a set of new batteries. When they do work you must juggle the top from time to time as the connection is weak.
I was so disappointed in these. Last year I bought them for a friend who went out of town and didn't use hers and then I received them as a gift. They go through batteries (which are pricey) and only last 12 hours. Half the time they don't work. I wish I had read the reviews first. Waste of money.
Take your chances
The bulbs are beautiful without the lights and that's good because five out of twelve bulbs did not work properly. The on/off switch was extremely tight and some couldn't be turned to the on position at all. A beautiful concept but the mechanics of this product has serious flaws.
very frustrating--beautiful concept and poor workmanship--one ornament was broken upon opening and two were not working well--expect more quality from Valerie--had this poor performance with the glitter balls too. Going back--it would probably take three boxes to make a single purchase work well.
So Disappointed!!! Did NOT work!!
Ordered 2 sets last year after seeing on-air presentation. None of them worked. Extremely cheaply made. So disappointed because ornaments were beautiful, and would have been incredible if they had worked. Fortunately I had the foresight to check them when they arrived. Sent them back immediately. Don't waste your money. Lost money due to shipping charges. Surprised QVC has kept them. Need to do better with QA!
Bought these during Christmas in July promo. In December put them on my tree and was blown away with how beauitful they were. But...the timer did not work so the battery died. Replaced the batteries but did not help. Some did not light. Others only lasted a few hours. Still, just the reflection from the string of lights made them glow but that is not for which I paid. Valerie, if you fix this I will try again because they were that beautiful for one day.
The ornaments are gorgeous hanging on the tree reflecting other lights. The lights they were to have morphing, didn't after the first day of use. Changing the batteries didn't work. Now, all I have is a tiny little red light under the cap. It's not annoying because it blends in with the tree lights. I plan to keep the ornaments and use them like my other unlit ornaments, taking the batteries out..
I too bought these ornaments during Christmas in July. They are very pretty ornaments. However, I was mainly sold on the timers that each ornament was suppose to have as well as the extra batteries that were suppose to be in the box with an additional screwdriver for the very tiny screws. Like many of the other reviews, mine did not have any timer function and there were no extra batteries. I didn't turn them on until Christmas Eve. They never turned off, like others claimed would activate the timers. And the battery life only lasted that one night! They also are very hard to turn on and off as others have said. You have to apply so much pressure to get the switch to turn on, you think you're going to break the ornament. I plan on sending them back since it was advertised in July that you could send any returns back by January 31st. However, the box is long gone. Valerie, these ornaments were so beautiful during your presentation. They are just one big disappointment for their defectiveness. But thanks for the screwdriver!
Battery Life is 3 Days
Sending my set of ornaments back because of low battery life. I got 3 days of usage before the batteries went dead.
timer a joke
i purchased 2 sets and was very excited when they arrived. great size on the sets however the timer does not work on either set and they are hard to turn on and off.
since one set was a gift i was embarressed when i raved about ithaving a timer and it did not work..to late to send back. very unhappy
wish they had timers
one reviewer said that by turning them on that sets the timer, not at all true, these definitely do not have timers! and one i cannot even turn off, my husband took it apart and could not fix the problem. i had planned on giving some for gifts but not without a timer. not very happy with them! oh well!.
I am very happy with my mercury glass ornaments. They arrived safe and sound, worked well right out of the box, and look beautiful hanging on festive wired ribbon from my dining room chandelier.
