Rated 3 out of 5 by Pdb More beautiful unlit
More of a 3.5 rating. I love blue. Makes me feel good. I have blue accents all through my home. When I first saw them, I immediately jumped on them. However, read the reviews after purchase. They were correct. The light is too bright. You see more light and it takes away from the beautiful blue orb. I chose to keep them and have decided not to light them after the battery runs out. They are much more beautiful sitting in a bowl unlit. However, that defeats the purpose of buying an orb that lights up. I would not purchase again. Valerie you may want to consider modifying the light output. I would recommend because they are beautiful, but consider why you're purchasing. You cannot enjoy the beautiful orb colors at night.
Rated 5 out of 5 by shemad Happy with purchase in PC.. absolutely love these!
Purchased before Christmas all arrived in excellent condition. Use every night for 6 weeks, so beautiful did not want to put them away after Christmas. Would love to see colors in all the holidays...I would buy them all.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ladyjane 910 Dull..In A Word
Purchased 18 AAA batteries..that I now can't use..
The single bulb cheapened the look.
Then 2 of my 3 on a test run the timers malfunctioned.
Rated 3 out of 5 by RichieSZ Not All Home Décor Needs To Light Up
I purchased these crackle mercury glass spheres in the multi-colored set. First, they are a nice size and weight. The glass is substantial and thick, and the colors are vibrant and bold. However, when lit, these spheres lose their appeal. The single bulb on the inside is unappealing versus the smaller twinkle lights of some of Valerie's other products. Also, when lit, the colors are very dim. When the blue sphere is lit, you can barely tell the sphere is blue at all. The silver is quite see-through, and you can actually see the wires and circuitry inside when the sphere is lit. Not all home decor items need to be lit. I also purchased the crackle mercury sphere ornaments that match this set. They don't light up and are beautiful on their own. Considering it takes 18 AAA batteries to light this set and how poor they look lit, it seems a waste. I'd rather have paid a little less to have these spheres without a lighted feature.
Rated 2 out of 5 by beach mom Poor quality
I was so looking forward to getting these, but when they came I was so disappointed. 3 out of the six had big blobs of paint in them. When they are lit up all you see are the blobs of paint. They are going back. Please Valerie improve your quality control. You have such beautiful ideas and products. It's such a shame to get them and be disappointed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Diana Sue Really cute in red!
Maybe it depends on the color, but I just received mine in red and I think they're really cute...like a candle burning inside! I have the larger ones also and I agree they are not exactly the same but they do accent the larger ones nicely. Reading the other reviews I have to say I didn't notice the battery pack inside so I checked it out. I guess if you look up close and directly into the sphere you can see it...but I only noticed because I looked for it! It must be the color? I'm happy!
Rated 4 out of 5 by kath3 Excellent color
Purchased the set of gold globes. I agree that they are rather transparent but the gold color is deep and rich so I just am enjoying the glow.
Rated 1 out of 5 by bammm Very Disappointed
I have never written a review before, but I was very disappointed in the quallity of this product. Like the other reviews, I couldn't believe you could see the "fake" looking bulb and the metal holder inside the sphere. The metal holder was even noticeable 6' away. I wish they would have put thicker crackle on it so this wasn't visible. It made them look so cheap. I was not happy I had to return them and incurred the shipping cost.
