Sitara Collections Home Decor, Travel Needs and Fantastic Gifts from around the Globe Review

Founded in 2007, Sitara Collections is an online destination for home decor, travel needs, fine jewelry, fantastic gift selections and personal luxuries you won't find anywhere else. At Sitara, we believe gifts should be more than the mass-produced items too many of us reluctantly buy.

The company initially focused exclusively on the exceptional work of Indian artisans, whose exotic inspirations and traditional craftsmanship still remain at the heart of Sitara Collections. In recent years, offerings have expanded to include extraordinary examples of South American artistry and a line from one of France’s most exciting jewelry designers.

All of the products are crafted by talented artisans, most of whom are keeping centuries-old techniques and designs alive while creating modern treasures. And because every piece is handmade, your purchase is the very definition of exclusive.

We’re proud to offer top-quality materials sure to please the most discriminating buyer. We’re equally proud to support fair labor practices—particularly for our Indian and South American artists—to ensure that they’re able to devote themselves to their craft while earning a fair wage.
In addition to fine jewelry, Sitara Collections also features extraordinary d├ęcor items, elegant Pashmina and other delightful surprises sure to transport you to a whole new world of possibilities. Sitara is about feeling confident, chic and absolutely fabulous. Even our name—the Indian word for “star”—speaks to our mission.

Browse the Sitara Collections online, and let our exceptional creations make you feel like a star every day.

Now this very pretty envelope came in my package, which by the way all the products were packaged very well.  I was surprised to see that it holds your invoice and I thought it was so elegant and  a  real nice touch.

This handsome incense (set of 2 boxes) provides a simple and elegant way to practice meditation, or to simply enjoy the act of burning incense. The box and incense is handsomely decorated with the Tibetan sacred mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum

 Set of two boxes of incense.
Each box contains a gold incense burner.

Cassandra's Review- I liked the smell of these incense and they remind me of being in a church. I was not thrilled with the bulky size because they only fit in the incense burner that comes with the item, but they do burn for a long time. I noticed that the incense will start to burn the holder before it goes out and then you have to find something to take out the rest of the incense from the bottom of the burner.  As I am sure you aware this is not real gold. The sticks break very easily so be careful with them, I lost three before I got one to go in the burner but you can use the little pieces in the burner as well. Just supervise it. The packaging of this item is really cool.  The smell was also not so overpowering that it would burn your throat or eyes so that is always a plus. 

You can find a really good amount of inventory on the site and I would recommend checking it out. The prices are range so everyone will be able to find something they can afford.

I received complimentary products in order to review. All opinions are my own!
