Set of 2 5-1/2" Color Changing Glass Ornaments with Gift Boxes
I received this set of Color Changing Glass Ornaments w/Gift Boxes and they are beautiful. They look like I spent much more than I did and the gift boxes look like these came from a high end boutique. I purchased these to give to my foster son's social worker and case manager for Christmas. I purchased a different set of round ornaments last year and they loved them. So, I know that they'll love these too.
I received both my ornaments in good shape , but the boxes they came in look like they have been returned or something before so I will not be able to use to gift these. I may just keep both for decoration because they are pretty. I do not know about the battery life as the other reviews yet, either way I will keep to decorate my home since I did not pay full price.
Bad Purchase - Voracious Battery Eaters!
Ornaments are pretty and delicate looking, but unless you have a special bank account for purchasing batteries, avoid these ornaments. In a matter of only a few days, set on the timer function, they devoured not only both sets of batteries that came with the package, but also another set of batteries that I purchased separately. And the batteries are not cheap, especially when they need to be replaced so quickly. Really bad. Like a dope, I purchased yet another (!) set of batteries before I learned my lesson -- 4 sets of batteries in under 2 weeks, on the timer setting!
Looked good for first 1 or 2 days, by the the 3rd day they lit up nicely but faded to very dim within 30 minutes. No guarantees that they'll even light up after 3rd day, unless you spend another $8 or more on just one set of batteries to last only 2-3 days. Very expensive purchase once in use.
I tried these ornaments when I received them to be sure they worked. They did. I gave the angel to my sister and kept the tree. I put the tree out and set it on timer with colored lights last week. After less than a week, it blinks red only. The ornament itself is lovely, and the changing colors were pretty when they worked, but really, it's hardly worth the price for only for a few days. It's still okay without lights, but I expected more. Like others, I'll keep it because it isn't worth the price of postage to return.
These ornaments are beautiful, and you'll be able to enjoy them as long as you have a good supply of batteries. From our experience, the batteries are good for about two days. (on timer mode)
Received ornaments which was on wait list - ornaments are very nice except the christmas tree didn't work-changed the battery twice-still didn't work-needed all 5 for gifts for co-workers. Should have read the reviews before ordering them. Cost too much money to return - Sent them back any ways.
These two ornaments are beautiful, but I used the angel right away since I collect them & the battery only lasted about 2 weeks if that. I was very dissapointed. I thought about keeping them anyway since they are pretty even when they are not lit up, but I'm going to send them back. I can't keep putting batteies in them every two weeks.
I would like to give this product a better review, but one ornament arrived shattered so of course it went back. Maybe I can leave a better review when I get the replacement, hopefully intact.
Lovely for gifts
These are lovely. Perfect for a grab bag gift, office gift, teacher gift, mail lady, bank teller...you name it, they're simple, elegant and most importantly AFFORDABLE. IF you're looking for fine crystal then obviously this isn't for you, but for a simple ornament gift these are spot on!
These are pretty and I like having either the bright white or multi color mode. Unfortunately, with the angel, the switch to move to multi-color, does not work. Will return for an exchange. I will place these on a table, not hang. I like these so much, I may buy another set as a gift for my Mom. She likes flameless candles and she'll love these. Reason for a 4* is that the angel is not centered inside the glass globe.
i just returned these. The Christmas tree did not work at all, even changed the batteries. Back it goes!
No wonder, so inexpensive. However, QVC always does well, with their high shipping costs. makes me think twice now before I order anything.
Very cheap looking. Not too bad when the color changing light is on. However, the while light is very dull on the tree and just OK on the angel. One of the box lids was crushed so not very giftable. Haven't decided yet if I will return them or not. Could probably get something at a "dollar" type store a lot more reasonable.
