I gave this a 2-star rating only because they are rather pretty and do function with tealiight candles. Otherwise, I was totally mislead by both the description and Customer Service Rep when I called to specifically ASK about sizes and TYPES of candles to use with this set. I was told that I could use Pillars, votives (there are no inserts in this set just a hole which is off-center on all of the pieces). Truthfully the only "safe" and not messy option is to use a little tealight (I used the Partylite ones w/ a burntime of about 6 hours) and that did work well and was pretty. But I had wanted to have more diversity with these holders. It's just not there. Tried balancing a pillar on there but it was so wobbly that I was concerned that as it burned/melted that it would fall over and burn the floor. Not a favorite, has in it's future.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? same
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. poor, holes for candles were obviously off-center, there is no "sparkle" from this item as in description, does NOT use anything but tealights unless you want a waxy mess EVERYWHERE! Votives too big to even fit. Cannot use pillars as too wobbly.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very misleading and inaccurate. I called customer support to ask specifically WHAT sizes/types of candles could be used with these and was told ALL candles could be used.... which technically is true as long as you don't mind the mess or risk of burning down your house.
