Rated 3 out of 5 by Alwaysshopping Beautiful but faulty
I got the finials and they are lovely with or without the lights on. However, the light component is poorly constructed. I think the boxes were originally attached to the finials but in two of three they fall out. I put the finials out about a month ago and last night the timer on the largest finial quit. I can turn it on manually, but no more timer. I will keep these because they are pretty even without the lights which is a good job because I doubt that the lighting is going to last long.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Who Knew Defective finial
The timer quit working on one of the finials after 2 weeks. I returned them. The trees are still working properly. Despite all this, they are pretty.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ConnieMarieD Beautiful but...
These are pretty, but I cannot open the battery compartment -- it's too stiff and my fingers are not that strong. What a waste. Now I have the joy of re-packaging and sending back.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WisconsinMom So nervous to try these...
The reviews are awful and that is such a shame...it truly doesn't do justice to these beautiful trees or finials. Maybe quality control is a real issue, but if you are given a good set - just WOW! Even luckier still, I had to order my set(s) in as is since the silver quickly sold out and still got a perfect set. Anything could have arrived in that box and I was preparing myself for the worst...broken trees, non-working battery boxes, crooked, that horrid oil so many have talked about...but NOTHING. Mine are as good as new and better. They didn't even appear to have ever been opened and of course, with ordering "as is" I got a great discount. Just know for all those out there that love the VPH collection, these trees are worthwhile. Maybe try as is instead so that if nothing else, its less of an investment considering these seem to be a gamble regardless. Today. I hit the jackpot! I also ordered the matching silver finials which will arrive tomorrow...I hope its another success story again then, as well. So far, I love them!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Beautiful but defective
I didn't open mine immediately upon receiving rather waited until the Christmas season. Lesson learned. Two of the trees work, but one did not. The battery compartment was missing a prong for the negative side. I'm contacting Customer Service to see if they will send me a replacement and hopefully they will.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Karen in SF Pretty but has its limits
The finials are beautiful when lit. Lots of sparkle and look great with my holiday decor. Drawback, uses three batteries that last about 5 weeks on the timer. Other shortcoming, timer is only 4 hours "on". It's dark close to 5pm but I have them go on at 6 pm so I can enjoy them until 10pm - bedtime.
Rated 1 out of 5 by MUGGS Very disappointed in this purchase
I have purchased many items of Valerie's and was always happy with them. But with these finials I am very disappointed the paint is coming off and the battery box fell out.
I should have look at these when I received them but I never had a problem with Valerie's products before just took it for granted that they would be as beautiful as the other things I have ordered.
