Set of 3 Lit Indoor Outdoor Mercury Glass Spheres w/Timer by Valerie
I got these spheres in the midnight and they are fabulous! They are black / graphite gray in color; not dark blue. They are perfect for Halloween decorating and my kitchen is done in shades of graphite gray, fog gray, and white, so I plan to leave them out on my kitchen island all year long. I have had these spheres in other colors and have had issues with them; hopefully these will perform as they should. Get the midnight color if you love gray and black; you won't regret getting this color.
I ordered the Gold & Silver last year and got compliments from EVERYONE! Even my husband loved them. I really wanted the Ice Blue, but they had sold out. This year, I thought I would need to order the Cobalt but Valerie said the Lavender was actually an Ice Blue color, so taking her at her word (of course) I ordered them, and VIOLA! PERFECT! They ARE Ice Blue! These will blend perfectly. I Love, Love, Love these Balls. So different and pretty. I'm running out of storage room. Am going to have to purge my Christmas Decorations so I can fit all my QVC purchases! NOT COMPLAINING!
A Hot Mess....
I purchased these in 2013. I did not put them out till June and stored them for the winter in November. I noticed some of the color coming off at that time. I put them outside again in June of 2014 and almost all the color is off all three pieces. Also the middle one stopped working. I gave them one star because they were pretty when I first got them. Where is quality control QVC?
not a good value
I bought 3 sets of these a few months before a backyard wedding. They lasted about 3 months (even tho' they claim that batteries, using the timer, would last several thousand hours). Not only did the batteries not last but at least half of them failed to continue to work after having new batteries inserted. They're quite pretty but not worth that kind of money.
They are fun and festive. They are also very large, so be prepared. The orange color is actually gold which is fine. I am happy with the purchase. I guess you could break them up and give them out as impersonal gifts for a teacher or a hostess gift.
This is on of the best purchases that I have made!! This is my 2nd set of spheres. I have the red, silver and green for the holidays, and now I have the brown set for Autumn. I have them on the bottom shelf of my coffee table and I receive compliments whenever someone is over and they are lit. The timer is awesome and the battery life is wonderful.!!! They seem to last forever. Great item Valerie..... going to purchase the light green set towards Spring time...... Thank you!!!!
Doesn't Work Any longer
I purchased 3 sets of these two at on time the other by itself. Ok, that was a year ago . Took them out a few months ago for summer... The switch doesn't move to turn on any longer in almost all of them. Batteries don't last long either . Oh I bought her little mason jars that lite up , batteries dead n a month. Theses were all brand new barriers. Extremely disappointed in what Valerie is selling !!!
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.
