Rated 1 out of 5 by myconboys Trying again to get my review posted
I wrote a review AT LEAST 5 days ago and QVC didn't bother to post it. I didn't break any of their community standard rules. I don't know why they wouldn't post other than the fact I gave this ornament an honest review. This ornament is cheap and is in NO WAY up to Joan's standards. I own many pieces of her jewelry including bracelets, necklaces and bee pins. i also own some of her scarves. Joan would never have put her name on this ornament. It feels like plastic, and came in a really cheap box (Joan always presented her items in a beautiful black box). And the "etched" XXV is a STICKER on the back of the bee.
I really hope this review posts because I do not want to write all of this again. Please post my honest review, QVC. The buyer needs to know that this is not Joan quality. I wasted shipping and handling on this item and my time.

Quite happy with my new ornament. Enjoyed Joan and her collection she brought to QVC. This is my first ornament from her collection. It is lovely. My tree is white and silver...very light an airy. This fits perfectly. Quality is fine...bought on clearance/ steal for sure. Thinking about gift ideas...this would be great. Love my bee!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by chic but comfy Sizable and lovely
A lovely ornament - certainly glass, as advertised, not plastic, as one negative review stated. mine came in perfect condition - no loss of glitter or other embellishment. The only negative I can see is that the "XXV" on the back is, in fact, applied with a strip of clear tape, rather than engraved. If that's important to you, you will not be happy - if not, this isn't something that anyone will see, actually... Otherwise, it's just a matter of taste! Perhaps this design is not as lovely as some previous versions - I've not purchased those, so cannot compare, but I think some of the very negative reviews here are really a bit over the top. I do think the original price is higher than I'd have paid (hence, the four rather than five stars), but this ornament is just what it is presented as being, and especially at the reduced price, is a nice addition to my tree and a pleasant annual reminder of Joan Rivers, whom I admired.

This is a beautiful bee ornament. It is substantial in size and very well made.

I chose the 'gold' toned bee to have it displayed in my living
and dining room which is all tonal golds & champagne. It is
beautifully made with lots of bling & brightness. Joan is so
missed: Joan was a pioneer who forged against all odds in
her generation when women didn't have their own identity or
careers. Joan also endured a heart wrenching personal issue
when her husband committed suicide....but even with all these
hardships; Joan endured & thrived into a multi-billion dollar
enterprise & lived a truly authentic life. I wanted something
from her retail line at the "Q" & this piece was the perfect
item for me to remind myself that when life gives you
a bunch of lemons.....make lemonade :) God Bless You Joan
your energy, love, humor, strength, & all you stood for will not
be forgotten but passed on to the next generation of young ladies.

I can't compare this bee to her previous version ornaments because this is the first ornament I have purchased from Joan Rivers collection, but I think it is beautiful and very unique. It is quite large and will show up very nicely on the Christmas tree or dresser. I ordered the gold and it is lovely. I like that it came in a special box so it cannot get broken. I believe this is glass not plastic as some people put in there reviews. I will keep mine and treasure it for years to come.
Rated 4 out of 5 by nwgirl Same great quality
After reading through the reviews i decided to order the pink bee. I have ordered all the bee ornaments over the years and i am just as pleased with this years bee as others. Mine was a beautiful glass bee with all of its embellishments intact. I brought out all my previous years bees and held this years up to each one and could not see any difference. Some of the past years had a more beautiful pattern to them such as snowflakes or other design to them that this years lacked but all in all its well done. If possible i would love a better design next year. It's missing that extra touch.
