Although rose gold has been used for several decades, and was once called “Russian Gold” in the 19th century, it has increased in popularity drastically over the last couple years and can be found in fine jewelry, fashion jewelry and watches. Initially, I was not a passenger on the rose gold train but I eventually fell in love with this pink hued metal for its versatility. The warmth actually compliments all skin tones, in addition to other colours of metals instead of competing with them…not to mention, it also works extremely well when paired with diamonds or gemstones.
Mixing and matching metals is huge right now and throwing rose gold into the mix of accessories can add another colour dimension, putting your look right on trend. Bulova’s new watch line, Caravelle New York is finally available here in Canada and it’s extensive collection of rose gold watches is bound to have a piece that would appeal to any woman who considers watches an important element to one’s outfit. Afraid of introducing this unconventional colour into your watch and accessories collection? You can always choose a watch that only uses the hue as an accent and if you’re a legit fan of it, there is a vast variety of options to choose from on the brand’s website. Some of my fave styles from the rose gold collection have utilized beautiful Swarovski crystals, mocha coloured dials, leather, even bracelet style bands.
A bit of a departure to what I would normally wear on my wrist, I really do love this watch for a couple of reasons. For starters, it is a perfect juxtaposition between a feminine and masculine looking watch. The woven look of the band is what you would typically see in a man’s watch but the pearl coloured dial, rose coloured roman numeral numbers and the 60 Swarovski crystal bezel gives it a feminine feel. $155
If you’re not into the full rose gold look on your wrist, this is the perfect watch for you. Caravelle New York has recently introduced their Rose & Mocha collection inspired by the city of New York at sundown. In this style, rose gold is used as a beautiful accent and gives the attention to the Swarovksi crystals, mocha dial and luxe leather band. $95
Love, love, love a classic chronograph watch. Always have and always will. I have several of them in all colour/metal tones, with my rose gold one being the latest addition to my collection. The style really goes with anything , can be worn for day or night and I love the masculine aesthetic. However, not overly masculine as the dimensions of the watch face and case thickness, still run consistent with women’s sized watches. $155
Probably one of the most chic watches in the rose gold collection, this style screams simple and understated elegance. There’s nothing over the top here and allows the wearer to quietly introduce the pink hued metal into their accessories collection. The double leather bracelet band is perfect for younger fashionistas who are just starting to coordinate watches into their daily outfits. $90
Mixing three trendy elements into one watch may sound too much in theory but when you take a look at this timepiece that incorporates the ever-so- popular tortoise around the bezel, mocha dial and rose gold metal band, you can agree that work together in harmony. $105
The tank style watch will never grow old in my opinion…it’s timeless…it’s classic…its sophisticated and very lady like. I remember seeing my English grandmother wearing a watch that resembles this one and thinking how chic she was and the style is still relevant today! Perfect to wear to work and the quintessential watch to wear for evening events. $115
