Cubic zirconia engagement rings - so much for so little. Why wouldn't you or I want something as lovely as this Art Deco style engagement ring for less than $40? Made of 925 sterling silver, this stunning ring has a 1.00 carat round brilliant cut 6 mm cubic zirconia stone that is nearly as rock hard as a diamond, but because of its unique properties is absolutely flawless! Brighten up your cubic zirconia ring with an old soft-bristled toothbrush or clean make-up brush. Coat the brush bristles with a simple paste of baking soda and warm water. Brush your jewelry on all sides: top, bottom, inside and outside. Regular cleaning maintains all of your cubic zirconia stone's original brilliance, making them look like high priced diamonds!

A wine themed bridal shower - make mine lovely and light Pinot Grigio! Women and wine - a perfectly chilled glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay or Merlot sipped while playing bridal shower bingo or trying to put down in print your best "words of wisdom" for the bride-to-be. I can't think of a better way to toast her future and good fortune!

Custom candy buffet labels - they are so lovely but they don't come cheap. These lovely vintage style lace candy labels will cost you $45.00 for a set of 10.

Or sell them to a friend, neighbor or co worker for half the price. Custom tags like these are just too exquisite to use only once.
