My name’s Rachel and I’m addicted to Rose Gold Jewellery. Okay, you got me, I’m not literally addicted to it, as though my life depends on the colour of rose gold; but I do have a growing obsession with the colour, wanting to buy items that feature it and of course wearing it and pairing it all with an outfit.
I don’t really know what attracts me to rose gold, but I don’t particularly wear any type of gold jewellery or actually like it that much, so I suppose it’s kind of a more girly and ‘me’ version of gold. But lately it just seems like I’m more attracted to it than ever before, and have now seemed to have accumulated quite a few rose gold pieces, that I thought I would share with you. Obviously I don’t think any of them are actually rose gold, however a girl can dream and hopefully one day it won’t be costume jewellery that has rose gold featured in it, but real jewellery that is real rose gold.
So, let’s start from the newest piece that has been added to my little rose gold collection, and this has to be this rose gold ‘wish’ ring from Argento. This was actually a present from my aunty, which I had been eyeing up for quite a while, and is part of argento’s new own range of jewellery. If you’re not familiar with the concept of argento, then basically it’s a jewellery shop which contains a number of different well known brands, such as nomination, Pandora, Thomas Sabo, and mixes it with their own range of jewellery, to create one large outlet for a number of different types of jewellery and for all different tastes. And, this gorgeous little ring is exclusive to argento’s own jewellery range. It’s very dainty, small and quite simple and elegant, with the swirly writing of the word ‘wish’ and the small diamante to top of the I, it makes it extremely femine and girly, and is such a perfect gift, with a perfect price tag, of only £20.
Then next, is this large, round faced, rose gold watch from Fossil. If you saw my ‘New watch’ post from about 2 years ago, then you would know that I actually already have a really nice Armani exchange watch, which is still in good condition and something that I wear on a regular basis. However when ,me and my mum visited Bicester shopping outlet, and saw how much reduction they had on the watches, and the extra 25% because it was the bank holiday, we decided to both treat ourselves and buy new watches.
I’ve had my eye on getting a rose gold watch for ages, and have always loved the Michael Kors chunky wrist watches that are rose gold. However, when I tried on fossils version of those watches, they just looked stupid on my small wrists, and although I’m no way a small and delicate person, it managed to completely drown me and make me look like I was wearing my dads watch. Therefore I decided I needed a leather strapped one, very much like my existing watch, and then I found this beauty. It’s very big faced, which I absolutely love, and it has a mix of nude/peach leather and rose gold hard wear around the face, and trimmed rose gold clock handles, markings and numbers. Without the discount this watch would of been around £80-£100, maybe even more; however, I got at an extremely good discount and would totally recommend you go and have a visit to Bicester village, and get yourself some bargains.
Somehow I feel like rose gold is going to continue drawing me in, and making me love it more and more. I’m sure by the end of the year I will have so many more items to add to my rose gold collection, and may even have to do this post again, but choosing my favourites from my collection. I think that a few of these items may end up being from the new Pandora Rose collection, which looks so lovely and femine, and has my name written all over it.
