Set of 3 Lit Indoor Outdoor Mercury Glass Spheres w/Timer by Valerie
I purchased the spheres in midnight. When not lit, they are a beautiful graphite gray, & when lit they look like a star filled sky. Simply beautiful! You hit a home run with these Valerie, bring more new colors!
The purple is even nicer than I expected. It is so rich and when the lights are on it is even more captivating.
I own the chocolate in the smaller set and love the way they twinkle.
Gorgeous Mercury Glass Spheres
I purchased these to hang from my light fixture in my dining room. They look beautiful. I can dim the light fixture and the spheres look just beautiful over the table. I'm hoping to purchase more for Christmas decorating.
They look nice at night when lit up, but they are actually a drab color during the day and unlit. I got 2 sets and will send one back for sure. May send the other one back too. I prefer a brighter color glass.
I received the gold ones as a Christmas gift last year. I love them. I have them hanging in my den. They glow and look so elegant and peaceful. I have not had any problems with batteries running out quickly. I have the timer set to come on every night and I have only replaced the batteries twice in 8 months. As I said they are on every night. I don't think that is bad for batteries. Now they do use three C batteries each so it is not cheap to buy that many batteries but I think it is worth it for the pleasure and ambiance they provide.
Midnight Is Pretty
I received the Midnight today as well as the Cobalt. I already own a set of Silver. I experimented with putting the Midnight in a couple different places, but found they look stunning in my bedroom on my black, electric fireplace. My bedroom is very dark and modern, so they really compliment the decor. The Cobalt is very vibrant and looks great mingled with my Silver spheres. These spheres, as well as the mercury glass mason jars by Valerie, are by far the nicest and most reliable products she brings to QVC.
Midnight Is Ok
I have the silver ones and bought the new color midnight. When the lights are on at night they all look the same. Kinda a waste of money. May return. Love the silver.
I received my sphere today and they are very pretty I chose purple thinking about the Amber for fall. I have them on the timer mode and all 3 are just gorgeous. Here's hoping I get more then one season like some other reviews. GLAD I HAVE THEM
Hope these last cause they are so cool! I got the amber and put them in the fireplace.
These spheres are really very pretty. I returned them because I found the shape of them made it awkward to decorate with other decos. I would love these in a set of 4 or more, but the medium size being the largest.
What you need to know
I love these spheres! I have had mine for a year now. They work well and are beautiful. BUT, I have discovered some things about them. First of all, you must use good batteries. Good batteries lasted almost 6 months. Then I replaced with cheap batteries that lasted 6 weeks and they were dim. I thought they were dying, then w/good batteries again - like new. Also, the color will rub off. Clean with dry cloth. I don't think they will hold up outside. And, finally, mine rattle when shaken. It's the strand of lights inside. If you receive these with one broken QVC will replace.
Glowing Glass Spheres
I bought these in the red, gold and icy blue. They are really beautiful and the colors are perfect. I wish there were a green set as well. I'll be using these for Christmas decorating and can't wait to see them with my other holiday items.
