Mindblowing Music
As a connoisseur for fine music, this is something you would just love to get your hands on. Bose Audio systems has just released their latest home theatre system from their Lifestyle series in India. Excellent sound quality not withstanding, it is the dimensions of the product, which enthrall the most. The Jewel Cube speakers that accompany it are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, which you can hide among plants or furniture, or even under a couch. So you get impressive sound without big, bulky speakers (and there are no messy wires either). The best part is its unique multi-source expansion capability so that you don’t need different music systems for each room.

Sensual & Creative
Fashion celebrates rings this season and the Italian catwalks are full of innovative and interesting tributes to the classic gold ring. By flirting with trends from the past and playing with the creative gap between the simple and extravagant, Daniela Vettori offers unique rings with a distinctive antique flair. Versace’s already famed use of Greek Ornamentation is a unique design detail that can be seen in clothing, scarves, shoes, belts and now, even the celebrated rings from the Oro collection.
