January 31, 2014 - Love the paperweight. Hate the idea of a big white sticker with a bar code and price on one side of it. Can't seem to get the sticky off. Afraid to use to harsh a chemical that might take the color off with it.

January 27, 2014 - Having received one of these paperweights in pink, I decided to order a second paperweight and am just as pleased with it. The colors and carving are truly beautiful.

January 10, 2014 - The stone is lovely but the sticker that was on it dyed the stones color in that spot & no matter what I did it is still there. I have to hide one side because of this. Sad.

January 4, 2014 - UPDATE: I got 5 more hearts but the stickers weren't easily removed, left stubborn residue and discoloured the stones. Could possibly give away 4 but the light blue is too obviously marred. Still love the item but have to reduce the rating for these issues. (previous post: This is a really lovely heart. Mine is orange with a hash-mark pattern. It did have a large sticker on the back but it came off pretty easily and I didn't notice any discoloration as other folks mentioned. It may be due to the lighter color or perhaps was just a less adhesive sticker. Very pleased with this item, would DEFINITELY purchase more to give!)

December 29, 2013 - I love rocks and stones and so I loved this product. Mine was a dark pink with light pink lines all around it. I bought it in early December 2013. I did have the problem with the big sticker on the back. Still haven't been able to get it off. Otherwise awesome. I will buy more just reading the story about how they are made!
