Set of 3 Lit Indoor Outdoor Mercury Glass Spheres w/Timer by Valerie
These are really gorgeous in person. I ordered the amber color and they sparkle and sparkle. My stepdaughter told me she would like these to be her next birthday present! Even my husband commented on them (and he never comments on anything). I love the timer, too! These are so pretty in my home decor; great purchase!
I own 4 colors, love them.!
Purchased the blue the silver, purple and amber. Great for seasonal decorating, which I do all year.
I purchased the spheres over a year ago. You were supposed to be able to hang outside so I did, The color green faded a lot. Now the spheres will not light up at all cause the bottom must have got wet in rain, although the black rubber cover was supposed to protect them. As far as I'm concerned, I feel that I wasted The $50 plus dollars that I spent on it. It's too late now to return them.
I have purchased 3 sets of these lights at different time and use them during different seasons of the year. Some arrived broken and I received partial credit so as not to return the whole set and some have the lights swishing around inside when moved - but still light. I know they are mass produced and this lends itself to problems like this as well as poor quality control. HOWEVER - MY BIGGEST ISSUE is the color; they are not truly represented on the TV screen nor on the internet. The "blue" is an AQUA/TEAL color which I use to decorate with a beach theme in summer. The "amber" is basically a bronze color for harvest and fall decorating. Last but not least is the "midnight" color - which is pure black, black, black (unlike the very dark blue which is shown online) . . . great for Halloween but I was hoping it had more of a bluish tone so I could fit it into winter decorating with the snowmen and other items I use. There are now certainly enough colors - but I wish we could REALLY tell beforehand what we are going to receive.
I have had these for the past couple of years. I bought red, silver and green for Christmas and the blue set. The Christmas set is still up and running on the original batteries that were put in for Christmas. I can't tell you how much I enjoy this product. Valerie makes a quality product and I would not hesitate to buy anything from her company.
Beautiful Glitter and Sparkle!!
I ordered the spheres in blue and planned on placing them outside by my pool....I have since decided to keep them indoors because they are so pretty....I will use them in my bedroom and bathroom. These spheres are so versatile, much bigger than anticipated, and work perfectly. I just love the amount of glitter and light they produce, and so romantic in a bedroom. Great idea, Valerie! I love your mercury glass and home decor!
I ordered these in cobalt blue. So pretty! Timer works properly and coloring is well done. You've done it again Valerie! :)
One arrived broken beyond repair but still glad I bought them. The twinkle efect is so pretty and any season appropriate. I bought them to place on the front porch but like them so much I put them in the foyer. It gets very wendy here so if I use them outside I will have to be creative to secure them. We will see when the fountain gets here. I might put them on the porch.
I purchased cobalt for the Holidays and had them in a bay window. These are so cool and a wonderful decoration. My batteries lasted for the month that I had them on display and could have gone much longer.
I plan on displaying them this summer also.
I ordered myself a few sets two Christmases ago and when people saw them they wanted some, so I ordered more or gave them the information. During the year I bought more for myself and ordered some for Christmas this past year. Now they want more colors and even my son in law wanted me to order some for my daughter which I did and another set for myself!! They are pretty even when they are not sparkling at night. I want the pink and lavender for Easter now! They are soooo beautiful! Thanks for getting more colors in.
Would Like to Buy Just the Lights
I Love these they sparkle and can be used all year (summer with the fans on). I would like to buy the the lights as a replacement in case I over use them and the break (which is what I have been reading in the other comments). I would also like to buy lights that twinkle the same way separately. I have candle holders and all kinds of places to put them. Maybe something similar to the lights used in the mason jars.
Beautiful and Mesmerizing
In daylight, these spheres are eye catchingly beautiful. At night, it's difficult to take your eyes off them. They seem magical and somehow calming. I have them in a display that includes Valerie's mercury glass candle stick holders, so there are many levels which makes it more interesting. I've combined the silver and the brown.
One suggestion: Valerie...please make these with a remote control so that you can turn them on and off at will. To have them on the timer and using batteries every day is a waste and if , like me, you have them too high up in the room to turn them on/off manually, it would help keep costs down.
But thank you for this lovely addition to my home.
