April 14, 2015 - Love the hearts (I have 3); hate the sticker. Will try the olive oil technique another reviewer mentioned.
April 23, 2014 - Received my hearts in the mail last night. Dark blue, orange and teal. The carving goes up and down instead of across on all 3. Very pretty fat little hearts. The sticker is a pain. I got as much as I could off and then used a tiny bit of olive oil - rubbed it over what sticky was left and then scratched the rest off easily with my nail. I wiped the heart dry with paper towel. The tiniest bit of orange color came off with the oil, but not enough to see any discoloration on the heart. I have found oil to be the best remover for price stickers - no harsh chemicals.
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.
