REVIEW: Thierry Mugler ALIEN Eau Extraordinaire

I have adored wearing Thierry Mugler's beautiful fragrance ALIEN for a few years now.  I don't wear it everyday, as it is a decadent scent, alluring and very sensual, and I personally prefer to wear it when the mood suits me, usually evenings, when I am in just the right state of mind to exude femininity and sensuality and I want to capture the attention of those around me........  If you are not familiar with the Thierry Mugler ALIEN line of fragrances, here are the basics:

The original ALIEN Eau de Parfum Scent was created by Thierry Mugler in 2005.  He then built upon that in 2009 and created ALIEN Eau de Toilette.  Then, just when we thought ALIEN could not get any more splendid, in 2012 Thierry Mugler launched ALIEN - Alien Essence Absolue, Eau de Parfum Intense.  For those of us who have fallen in love with each of these variations of ALIEN, we know just how glorious and divine each of these captivating versions of ALIEN are, so it is with such excitement and honor that I share with you my thoughts about Thierry Mugler's newest and greatest ALIEN launch for 2014 - Alien Eau Extraordinaire, Eau de Toilette! Below are details about this fascinating new version of ALIEN:

{Adapted from the Thierry Mugler Press Release}

A new and luminous fragrance, ALIEN Eau Extraordinaire enlightens ALIEN’s universe like never before. Crafted with the finest materials, it offers a brand new olfactory experience for the fragrance lovers.

ALIEN Eau Extraordinaire - a floral, woody, amber creation in three revelations

A luminous floral revelation:
The freshness of a radiant bouquet 

The revitalizing light of Tunisian neroli: an essence described as “liquid gold” by perfumers because of its olfactory richness with hints of orange blossom. 

The exquisite sparkle of Italian bergamot tea: associates the radiance of essential oil of bergamot to a tea accord, in reference to the ancestral tea ceremony.

An incandescent woody revelation:
The generous warmth of an uncommon sensual accord…

The solar energy of the tiare flower… a symbol of love and happiness on the paradisiac Pacific islands where it grows, this flower adds honey-toned accents and a touch of exoticism.  Borrowed from the original Alien Eau de Parfum creation, cashmeran, composed like a warm, mysterious wood, continues to transport us to a welcoming “elsewhere”.

A benevolent amber revelation:
A comforting signature, like the warm caress of sunlight on skin

In the wake of Eau Extraordinaire, an enveloping and reassuring material: white amber, the emblematic signature of Alien.

Equally positive, soft wafts of heliotrope reaffirm the feeling of plenitude and well-being.

ALIEN Eau Extraordinaire by Thierry Mugler – 2 fl. oz EDP - $69

 Available in April 2014 at Thierry Mugler counters nationwide and on

Thierry Mugler
Alien Eau Extraordinaire

2014 Launch of Alien Eau Extraordinaire Eau Extraordinaire starts a new chapter in the story of Alien and promotes an even more optimistic and positive message. Splendidly radiant, the Solar Goddess emanates absolute serenity. Through her Eau Extraordinaire, she enhances the sensuality of women with incandescent freshness. Like a conduit for positive energy, the Alien Eau Extraordinaire woman radiates splendor and leaves a luminous, glowing and benevolent fragrance in her wake. This extraordinary eau de toilette is housed in a crystalline bottle inspired by a precious, marquise-cut gemstones.


I was sent a full size bottle of Alien Eau Extraordinaire, Eau de Toilette.  I know in my introduction I said that I usually refrain from wearing ALIEN everyday because for me it was more of an evening scent, but from the moment I first sprayed Alien Eau Extraordinaire, Eau de Toilette on myself, I have not stopped wearing it!  It is such an intoxicatingly delightful sexy fragrance, that I can stop wanting to breathe it in and allow myself to feel my inner beauty shine through!

When I was approached to do this review I was asked to be honest and share the good, the bad and the ugly.  I can say without hesitation that there just is not any bad or ugly, it is all good and may I add exceptionally outstanding!  The fragrance is breathtakingly so lovely, I will try and describe it to you:


I am drawn to a couple of different types of scents when I am selecting a fragrance for myself, usually a scent with a citrus aroma because I find that refreshing and energizing, or an amber scent because I find amber aroma's sexy and alluring.  For me, ALIEN Eau Extraordinaire, Eau de Toilette combines both materials that I love, along with many more!

Alien Eau Extraordinaire, the olfactory expression of optimism and benevolence

Happiness can be thought of as a state of plenitude and absolute serenity. To translate this feeling, Alien Eau Extraordinaire has been designed as a luminous, resolutely positive eau de toilette, composed in a radiant and optimistic olfactory language. Eau Extraordinaire, a concentrate of luminous notes Eau Extraordinaire combines materials selected for their energizing power on the senses. In keeping with the Alien signature (white amber and cashmeran wood), there is a solar bouquet of citrus and flowers – ethereal, festive, the symbol of radiant femininity: bergamot, neroli, tiare flower and heliotrope. These flowers have blossomed in the sun to fill the heart of a generous fragrance with radiant benefits.

When I spray on ALIEN Eau Extraordinaire, Eau de Toilette my senses are filled with energized sensations as well as feelings of flirty sensuality.  That is why I am do drawn to this fragrance and have chosen to wear it by day and night!  I have received compliments on it from family and friends as well as total strangers in stores and as I travel out and about!  The scent is irresistible, mysterious, enchanting, sultry, invigorating all at the same time!  It is sure to drive those around you crazy with excitement and happiness!

I understand this complicated fragrance and now can understand why Thierry Mugler paired it with the Solar Goddess as it's inspiration.  She truly does shine as the Alien Eau Extraordinaire woman who radiates splendor and leaves a luminous, glowing and benevolent fragrance in her wake. 

One last note, the bottle is stunning, so ultimately couture!  Here is the background relative to this exquisite bottle:

The Alien Eau Extraordinaire bottle: a crystalline gemstone with a marquise cut

This precious new flask reveals the golden champagne sparkle of Eau Extraordinaire. Like the other Alien bottles, it was inspired by gemstones and precious crystals, intense sources of energy and light with mystical powers. 

 This new design pays tribute to the “marquise” style, a way of cutting stones in 56 facets using complex and painstaking expertise. In France, this eighteenth-century innovation is said to have been inspired by the love of King Louis XV for his favorite, the Marquise de Pompadour. The rounded lines of the cut stone are a tribute to the radiant smile of the beautiful marchioness. It conveys the power of feeling into precious matter and covers the beloved woman with shimmering jewels in joyful shapes. 

 This same sensuality and femininity now clothe the bottle of the new interpretation of Alien: Eau Extraordinaire.


With every new season comes an opportunity for you to reinvent yourself.  Why not incorporate a fresh new and exciting fragrance into that mission!  Alien: Eau Extraordinaire is the ideal scent to kick off Spring and Summer in a mesmerizing manner.  Or, why not treat your Mother to this delightful scent for Mother's Day! Whatever the special occasion is, one thing is for sure, every woman will adore this fragrance once she experiences it for the first time, and she will covet it each and every day afterwards!

This concludes my review.

Scarves are one of my very favorite ways to add an element of style and chic-ness to my wardrobe.  I enjoy the way scarves make me feel about the way I look.  There is something very alluring when you pair just the right scarf to an outfit to give it that complete, pulled together look.  So it is with great enthusiasm that I share with you how FRAAS is kicking off the Spring season with relaxed sophistication and dressier options.  Here is a sneak peak of some of the scarves that FRAAS is debuting this season!  

The new Spring/Summer range 2014 from FRAAS – The Scarf Company has interpreted current trends in a unique way and thus lent to each item its very own FRAAS look. In the range there are photorealistic digital prints combined with hand-sketched motifs. In addition, geometric and graphic prints in rich contrasting colours play an important part. This demands a special emphasis on love for detail: embroidery, contrastingly coloured piping and shiny touches as well as doubleface effects.

Now that you have had an opportunity to see some of the exquisite and truly gorgeous FRAAS Scarves that have been created for Spring/Summer 2014, let me share with you about the darling Dottie Scarf I was sent to road test.


The Dottie Scarf is a clear winner that brightens and delights every wardrobe.

I was sent the Dottie Scarf in the pretty vibrant Pink color, and I adore it!  The scarf is long and flowing yet lightweight enough for me to enjoy it during the warm Spring and Summer months.  As always, this Dottie Scarf is rendered in very fine quality, always of the most meticulous fashion.  It is super long, and measures 28 x 76 inches so it allows me to wear it, tie it, arrange it in several beautiful styles!  I love the versatility of this splendid scarf, and it adds that element of elegance to so many of my outfits, from casual to dressy!

Polka dots have always been classic, and the Dottie Scarf is one of the top looks in the latest FRAAS Spring Collection.  Dots are always a popular pattern and Dottie is particularly chic because of its fresh, new color range:  Turquoise, Yellow, Pink, Green and Taupe.  Each shade is bursting with a clear and flattering hue and fresh, white polka dots.  The polyester drapes beautifully and can also be worn as a wrap!


Style No:  625827
Retails for:  $32

This well priced Dottie Scarf is ideal for gift giving, remember Mother's Day is around the corner or better yet, a perfect treat for yourself!  The scarf is sure to be an accessory that one can wear and covet for years to come.

You can find this scarf and a wide variety of other FRAAS products sold worldwide via department and specialty stores.  They are also sold at several online retailers.  You may also order from the company by calling (212) 575-0191.  Select styles are available on and

This concludes my review.

REVIEW: Amarte Skin Care - Love Yourself, Love Your Skin - East Meets West Synergy

I am bubbling over with excitement as I begin this review because I want to convey to you all how totally thrilled I am with Amarte Skin Care products.  It has been well over two months that I have been exclusively using Amarte Skin Care products on my face.  It is the very first time, for as long as I can remember, that I have consistently used the same skin care brand and products on my face for over 2 months.  Usually within that time frame I have at least tried or switched to some other brand or product, but I was so impressed and enamored with this brand and the products that I did not want to stop using them, not even for a day, and means a lot coming from this beauty product loving gal!  I think the Amarte products are outstanding!  Let me introduce this most intriguing company to you:

{Adapted from the Amarte Press Release}

Amarte is a premiere luxury skin care line based on eastern skin care philosophy and western dermatology, designed to cleanse, hydrate, rejuvenate and protect to bring out the clarity, brilliance, and beauty of every woman’s skin. With deference to Korean heritage and philosophy, Amarte is refined for American preferences and employs western elements within eastern structures for a true hybridization and a more thorough skin care experience. Since its Korean debut in 2001, Amarte has been the leading skin care line in Asia and has newly launched in the United States, aiming to provide consumers with the most effective, high quality skin care formulations in perfect East-meets-West synergy. All eight products in the Amarte line are tested, approved and recommended by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Craig Kraffert, President of Amarte.

Amarte celebrates the Korean tradition of taking pleasure in a multistep skin care ritual. Together, Amarte products create a unique, multifaceted regimen – cleanse, hydrate, rejuvenate and protect –to create an effective skin care system with formulations that marry innovative science and impressive beauty, exceeding current U.S. standards. For maximized purity and skin care benefits, Amarte also uses innovative airless pump technology, which preserves natural ingredients and ensures the formula remains consistent and product is completely dispensed.

Now that you have some background information about Amarte, let me share with you my experiences using a few of their most coveted products!


The truly wonderful folks handling Amarte Skin Care generously sent me four key products from the Amarte Skin Care line to review.  I was very anxious to try out the products because I was so impressed and intrigued by everything I had read about the brand.


Amarte Daily Wonder® Cleansing Foam
Price:  $40


A whipped-to-perfection cleanser made to refresh and pamper all skin types including oily and acne-prone complexions. Formulated with a custom blend of natural antioxidants (lavender and chamomile) and the botanical ActivElement® allatonin, the creamy lather lifts away impurities, protects against external factors, brightens, soothes, rejuvenates and exfoliates skin, preparing it for hydration.


The very first thing I noticed about this product is how fresh, clean and beautiful is smelled.  I am all about the sensory experience, and immediately I was captivated with the cucumber infused fragrance.  The second thing I noticed was it's rich creamy texture that immediately transformed into a lathering foam as soon as I began to swirl a dollop of it in the palms of my hands.  You need very little of the product to dispense enough to adequately gently cleanse your entire makeup filled face!  I wear it all, foundation, concealer, powder, blush, eye shadow, mascara, you get the idea.  And, this cleanser quickly, effortlessly and thoroughly removes all my makeup and leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and feeling wonderful.  It is probably one of my most favorite cleansers of all times!  That is honestly my feeling about this truly awesome cleanser giving my skin a fresh glow.

The next step is to REJUVENATE:

Amarte Wonder Cream®
Price:  $97


One of the most highly regarded products of the Amarte line, Wonder Cream® aids in anti-aging and restoration, lightens sunspots and exfoliates and nourishes skin for a supple, translucent complexion. The unique formulation of nano-encapsulated retinol, mushroom emollient and microscopic, multitasking elemental sulfur restores a supple, uniform appearance, enhances immunity without irritation and calms and brightens skin. With pearl powder and caviar extract, skin is left with a delicate sheen and full of vitamins and minerals.


I tend to have sensitive skin so often when I try a new moisturizer, especially one that contains retinol and has exfoliating properties, my skin tends to not react very well to it.  I have, in the past, experienced increased redness, even some burning with these types of ingredients.  And, to my pleasant surprise, I experienced none of those negative side effects from using this sensational Amarte Wonder Cream.  It truly earned it's highly regarded name!  Over the past 2 months it has worked "wonders" on my skin!  I find the cream to be rich and luxurious, yet, not even the slightest bit greasy or over hydrating.  It seems to absorb into my skin immediately, leaving my skin calmed, smooth and oh so silky feeling, I love it!  It is as if my skin is just begging for all the nourishment from the vitamins and minerals that is contained within it leaving a perfect canvas for my next steps, the makeup!

I have noticed over the past 2 months that my skin is more radiant and seems to have more of a glow to it.  I am also finding that I am not covering up my skin as much as I used to, using less foundation and barely any concealer.  I used to use much more to cover up redness and uneven skin tone, but I barely have any of those issues anymore since I have been faithfully using this Wonder Cream.  I savor my skin with the lasting benefits of this product and my skin is now worth adorning!

Amarte Eyeconic® Eye Cream
Price:  $55


An anti-wrinkle rejuvenator that delivers the highest levels of enhanced-stability pure retinol, ActivExtracts®, and ActivElements® to give vitality and resiliency to the eye area. The sophisticated yet mild Korean formula deeply penetrates wrinkles without irritation, while the argan oil and ginkgo nut extracts nourish, protect and condition the skin for optimal hydration and elasticity.


First I have to comment on the innovative and very groovy applicator!  It is the finest and most unusual pump applicator I have used!  You can easily dispense the most ideal amount of eye cream, a tiny dot, without having to dig your fingers into some tiny jar to apply.  Bravo to whomever designed this container and pump for the eye cream, it is amazing!

OK, the eye cream is beyond exceptional, think of something superior and think beyond what is superior and there you have it, the word for this eye cream!  You need just a tiny dot for each eye, I apply just a little bit under each eye and a little above my eye and it leaves the skin around my eyes treated and feeling hydrated.  No wrinkly crinkly's are going to ever form around my eyes as long as I use this magnificent eye cream.

It is light and creamy and leaves no greasy residue anywhere around my eyes.  I have truly noticed increased smoothness around my eyes and my skin just seems so much healthier and dewy.  Consistent use of this product is key to keep the progress going, but I noticed a different in my skin texture almost immediately.  This non-irritating product has given me results worth of my devotion to it now!

Now on to the final step, PROTECT:

Amarte Natural Finish BB Cream
Price:  $55


This finely pigmented moisturizing face tint brightens, softly conceals and protects with Broad Spectrum SPF 36, providing uniform coverage without caking or flaking for a long lasting, natural glow. Formulated with refined particles of titanium dioxide, rare argan oil, elemental sulfur and caviar extracts, the BB cream brightens, hydrates, heals and exfoliates the skin. In Light and Natural.


I saved the best for last, well, not really because it is the last step in the skin care routine, but it really is my most favorite product in this line, if that is even possible because I hold such a huge regard for each one!   No other BB Cream that I have used can shine a candle over this one.  This Amarte Natural Finish BB Cream is by far the best I have ever experienced using for so many reasons!

First and foremost, when I use this product, I do not need to wear foundation, at all!  This BB Cream is rich, lusciously creamy, and the "natural" color is a perfect match for my skin tone, which is inbetween light and medium.  The cream flawlessly blends into my skin to even out my skin tone, hide imperfections, and give my skin that dewy yet matte skin that I have always dreamed of having!  Who knew that there was a magical cream like this that can multi-task and multi-task to instantly transform your skin into the kind of skin most women dream of having!

It is everything it claims to be:  finely pigmented, moisturing, brightening, conceals, protects, provides uniform coverage and it lasts all day long without gaining any kind of a greasy appearance to it over time.  Oh, and I have to add, a teeny tiny dot of this BB Cream goes a long, long way!  I have been using it daily for over 60 days and I STILL have so much left!  This product is worth its weight in gold, I say that without hesitation!  I love love love this product and so will you once you experience it for yourself.

Your Story. Your Journey.
The Signature Fragrance of the Modern Woman

There is an untold story behind every modern woman who is thriving in her life’s journey. She owns every experience she’s had, every decision she’s made and is blossoming into a woman of many facets. Whether it’s dreams she has yet to share, secrets she has yet to reveal, or ambitions she has yet to declare, there are countless facets to every woman. While some of these facets are apparent on the surface, others remain hidden, only to be discovered over time.

The world never sees all of her, but can only steal a glimpse at a time. In those few fleeting moments you see her genuine smile, vibrant energy and effortless grace, but her story remains unrevealed… untold. Celebrating the sophistication and intrigue of the modern woman, Elizabeth Arden announces the launch of its new fragrance UNTOLD.

The Fragrance:

 Feminine. Sophisticated. Luxurious. Modern. Sensual.

Since 1922, Elizabeth Arden has been crafting fragrances as part of the brand’s holistic approach to beauty. Past classics like Red Door, 5th and now, with UNTOLD, the brand is introducing a luxurious and modern rendition of a sensual floral composition.

In developing UNTOLD, the perfumer masterfully brings together the highest quality ingredients to capture the different facets that, together, make the modern woman intriguing.

“I wanted UNTOLD to be a harmonious balance of the many facets of a woman, which, for me, is the source of genuine beauty,” says Clement Gavarry, IFF perfumer. “I imagined her sometimes adventurous, sometimes romantic, yet always equally confident,” he adds.

Each note in the fragrance was selected to evoke a characteristic of the UNTOLD woman:

Vibrant: Sparkling Pink Pepper fused with crisp Bergamot expose her vibrant optimism and joyful spirit.

Unpredictable: Playful, fruity accents of Pear and Blackcurrant Bud LMR* evoke her unpredictable ways.

Refined: Delicate Gardenia petals and intoxicating Egyptian Jasmine LMR* reveal her romantic and sophisticated femininity.

Mysterious: Nuances of Patchouli Heart LMR* and Sandalwood hint at her mysterious aura.

Sensual: Heated Ambers cascade over the caress of hypnotic Musk unveiling her magnetic sensuality. Lingering in the air is the unforgettable essence of her presence.

The Packaging:

The breathtakingly beautiful bottle of UNTOLD Elizabeth Arden is the embodiment of the multi-faceted, versatile nature of the modern woman. Just like the woman, the bottle is made up of many facets, which make it radiant and elegant. Due to its subtle curvature, the bottle takes on an appearance that is strikingly different at every angle, just as a woman delights those around her with a new side to her at each moment.

The generous folks over at Elizabeth Arden sent me a couple of the new UNTOLD products from the fragrance line to review.  I have been a long time Elizabeth Arden fan so my expectations were high and the thrill of my first impression did not disappoint!  Here are the details of what I experienced:

I received the:

A luxurious and modern floral composition, UNTOLD celebrates the sophistication and intrigue of the multi-faceted modern woman. From her vibrant optimism and refined femininity to her mysterious aura and magnetic sensuality, UNTOLD takes you on a journey through the many facets that together, make her genuinely beautiful. With its sparkling and fruity introduction, radiant floral heart and mysterious addictive warmth, UNTOLD captures all that a woman is. 

Whether it's dreams she has yet to share, secrets she has yet to reveal, or ambitions she has yet to declare, UNTOLD was designed to embody the many different facets of the modern woman. While some of these facets are apparent on the surface, others remain hidden, only to be revealed or discovered over time. 

The UNTOLD fragrance journey opens with sparkling Pink Pepper fused with crisp Bergamot, exposing her vibrant optimism while playful fruity accents of Pear and Blackcurrant evoke her unpredictable ways. Her refined femininity is revealed as delicate Gardenia petals enwrap themselves with intoxicating Egyptian Jasmine. Her mysterious aura is sensed through whispers of Patchouli Heart and nuances of Sandalwood. Finally, her magnetic sensuality is unveiled as heated ambers cascade over the caress of hypnotic musk. Lingering in the air is the unforgettable essence of her presence.

Mid: Gardenia, Peony, Jasmine

Base: Sandalwood, Patchouli Heart, Musk, Amber 

Fragrance Notes by Facets:

Each note in this fragrance was selected to evoke a characteristic of the UNTOLD woman: 

Vibrant: Sparkling Pink Pepper fused with crisp Bergamot expose her vibrant optimism and joyful spirit.

Unpredictable: Playful, fruity accents of Pear and Blackcurrant evoke her unpredictable ways. 

Refined: Delicate Gardenia petals and intoxicating Egyptian Jasmine reveal her romantic and sophisticated femininity.

Sensual: Heated Ambers cascade over the caress of hypnotic Musk unveiling her magnetic sensuality. Lingering in the air, is the unforgettable essence of her presence.  


This is one of the most enchanting, exhilarating, magical new fragrances I have experienced in a long time!  It is ultra feminine, very sexy, but also clean and fresh and oh so alluring!  You can immediately catch the lingering notes that embody this fragrance and the intoxicating aroma will leave you wanting to experience more!

It is full of fruit and spice and everything nice!  It is soft yet exotic, sporty yet sensual, it embodies it all!  It is subtle enough that you can were it during the day, but layer it with the body cream and you can easily spice it up to wear for a romantic evening out (or at home, smile).  I became immediately enamored with this sophistical fragrance.

I tend to be sensitive with some fragrances, in that after I spray them on they give me a headache because they are either too strong, too spicy or just plain awful.  That did not happen at all with this scent.  It is noticeable yet light, not overbearing or offensive.  I wore it all day long around the house, I wore it to work, I wore it to a couple of events, and everywhere I went, my girlfriends complimented me on it.  My friends are my toughest critics, so if they give it their seal of approval, I know my gut instincts must be correct!  It caught their attention in a positive manner, so much so they want it now.  That is why I give this new UNTOLD fragrance my highest recommendation as an ideal gift this Holiday Season.

I also received the:

Price:  $45


Lavish your skin with the irresistible scent of UNTOLD in this velvety body cream. Silky and luxurious, UNTOLD Body Cream leaves the skin lightly scented.

With its sparkling and fruity introduction, radiant floral heart and mysterious addictive warmth, this fragrance captures all that a woman is. Complement with UNTOLD eau de parfum spray for the complete fragrance experience. And, it is Paraben-free.


I love the fine art of layering my scents so this ultra luxurious body cream is the perfect pairing with the UNTOLD Eau de Parfum Spray!  I found that incorporating the body cream into the fragrance routine prolonged the longevity of the scent.  The thick rich body cream feels absolutely divine gliding along my skin.  It is the perfect texture, just the right amount of moisture and hydration to leave my skin feeling silky soft and glowing.

The body cream is emollient and oh so pampering and is great to apply right when you get out of the shower.  Applying this first and then spritzing yourself with the UNTOLD Eau de Parfum Spray seemed to really bring out all the notes in the fragrance more noticeably.  That is why I think that the holiday gift sets are such a great value and choice if you plan to try out this outstanding scent.  I found that doubling up with both made the scent last longer and I did not need to reapply it again for several hours.

You can visit the Elizabeth Arden website directly by CLICKING HERE to learn more about the delightful new UNTOLD fragrance and shop for all the splendid limited edition Holiday Gifts Sets that they are offering this Holiday Season!

This concludes my review.

The wonderful folks over at sent me a sensational Sterling Silver Diamond CZ Infinity Ring to review.  This is my first experience with and it has been such a positive, pleasurable one.  If you want a first class, 5 Star, superior gift for someone, or you want to treat yourself to a new and exciting piece of designer inspired jewelry, then this is the place to go for just that.  

Here are the details about the splendid Sterling Silver Diamond CZ Infinity Ring I received from

Sterling Silver Diamond CZ Infinity Band

Price:  $49


Everlasting love is expressed perfectly in this sterling silver pave eternity band. The continuous eternity symbol is highlighted with .55 carats of pave set cubic zirconia. This ring can be worn as a wedding band or a right hand ring and is available in sizes 6 thru 10. This infinity ring is 3.2 grams of sterling silver and measures 3/8" in width. A pave cz infinity band is the perfect gift to express everlasting love.


The ring arrived beautifully packaged in a distinctive blue and silver gift box.  A memorable first impression!  Then inside the gift box the ring was housed in an equally impressive blue and silver velveteen jewelry bag with the logo on it. So right away I was excited by this delightful presentation.

When I opened the jewelry bag and saw the ring for the first time I gasped.  Yes, even I can still be wow'd by some things.  The ring, which is a Size 6, fit me perfectly, which told me that the ring sizes do run true to size.  And, the ring is even more beautiful to see in person than from what I viewed on the website. 

Let me first comment on the quality of the ring.  In my opinion, the ring is meticulously crafted.  It looks like an expensive piece of very fine jewelry, that cost hundreds of dollars, not $49.00  It seems to be expertly rendered, with attention to detail in every design aspect.  I am immediately very satisfied with its outstanding workmanship.

I love that this particular infinity ring has that bling factor that I look for, but it is not too over the top in that it is unbelievable.  The diamond cz's immediately catch your attention, but they are the ideal size as to not have that unrealistic look to them.  I wore the ring through the Thanksgiving Holiday and I received numerous compliments from my family members and friends.  They all could not believe that the ring was a $49 ring.  The sterling silver shines, the diamond cz's sparkle and the entire design of the ring has that dazzling effect that catches the attention of those around you.  I am so enamored with this divine ring.

Lastly, included in the gift box was a special card that explains in detail how to care for your sterling silver piece of jewelry.  So I feel confident that this ring is going to stand the test of time and I will be able to enjoy wearing for a very long time.  This Sterling Silver Diamond CZ Infinity Ring is perfect for all women of all ages.  It is a classic yet contemporary designed ring that will bring such joy and happiness to any woman who wears it.  So without hesitation, it is one of my top picks for this season's Holiday Glamour and Gift Giving!
