CHERYL COLE LAUNCHES JEWELLERY RANGE
Cheryl Cole has been a busy bee this week, launching both a book and a new ring in association with de Grisogon. Before I saw the ring I had expectations that it would be big and made up of either one precious stone / gem, or be made up of a collection of lots of small chippings. Basically I thought it would SPARKLE and say, 'hey look at me, how beautiful am I!'
Well, I was wrong. My initial thoughts are far from the real thing. Sure, Cheryl lived up to my expectations for the launch night, wearing a customed designed dress which had sparkle and looked absolutely gorgeous... the ring however, did not.
It is a thick band ring with the word 'promise' inscribed on it. Do I hear 'cheesy?' Where's the glamour, where's the 'wow' factor?? (or should I say 'x'?!) From a distance this ring looks like one of the ones you can buy off the guy on the beach on holiday! I really was disappointed with it. And not only is the word itself cheesy and naff, the 'o' in the word is spelt with a heart rather than an actual letter. All the good stuff is on the inside! The ring is set on a solid gold band so that you can just see a glimpse of it through the letter cut outs for the word promise.
I'm not sure how much this ring will retail at but I know it will be out of my budget and probably most peoples', I got that impression from their website anyway! I think that is why I wanted to see something but more striking and definitely not have any messaging on it! On the night Cheryl decided to wear it on her little finger, which I think just looked out of place, and if she can't make it look good, then I've got no hope! What do you guys think? Even if you had a million pounds in the bank would you buy it? I don't think I would as pretty sure I'd never wear it!

Same can't be said for the ring!
