I had only Silver Jewelry phase in my life (high school). It just never, in my opinion, suited me. For years now, my accessories come in yellow and white gold; and in the past, this included chunky statement necklaces and thick bangles.
Nowadays though, I prefer pieces that still classify as a statement piece, but have a lighter more subtle form.
Surprisingly, on our first anniversary, my boyfriend gifted me an elegant watch and bracelet combination! The Michael Kors watch came in rose gold (specifically the Portia Rose Gold-Tone Watch) which my boyfriend combined with a bracelet (Pavé Rose Gold-Tone Bracelet) to make such a well-balanced set. I didn't even realize I didn't have rose gold in my jewelry repertoire until then! And while the watch is on the slightly chunkier side, the rose gold compliments my skin so it gives a barely-there, subtle style.
I wish that this could be an everyday watch, because I love it so much! (I also do need to rely less on my phone's clock) But the truth is, I like the idea that it be more of a formal event piece. I can't wait to take it on more dinner dates with him. It's a soft touch of elegance that goes with just about anything.
Is this another sign of a maturing style as I get closer to *gulp* thirty?
