Mixed Metals

The logical, OCD, left-brained side of me loves organization and cataloguing. It’s simply a shame that my artistic, chaotic, messy side generally trumps all, leaving me living in clutter that stresses me out but not enough to clean it up until the mister throws his hands up in exasperation and forces me to. That’s probably why I like this blog so much.

These are a few of the baubles I wear on a daily basis (though it’s safe to assume I only wear one watch at a time, albeit remarkably large ones). Over many years I’ve amassed a little collection of David Yurman (my favorite jewelry designer) but until recently haven’t been wearing them much because of my fondness for a certain yellow-gold watch that is ubiquitous on PSS.

Enter my new love: the rose gold version of said watch. It arrived in the mail Friday thanks to my friends over at Shop Bop and I’m head over heels. It has that more muted pink hue with which I find it easier to mix metals. I think it’s safe to say you’ll be seeing this new addition a lot in future posts.

    I used to love rose gold, because I was a tomboy who secretly wanted to be a girlie princess. Now, I'm all for yellow gold, and from time to time I throw in a silver piece or two. I wonder if one's penchant for a certain metallic color has anything to do with personality?

    I love that watch, I'm a sucker for rose gold myself. You've got a lovely collection of jewelry!

    I love Michael Kors watches! I love them in gold, but the rose gold is a nice change!

    I"m in love! I'm looking for a new addition and I can't decide which one to get. Although, I have decided to go with Michael Kors…his watches are fabulous.

    Oooh, that rose gold is so pretty!

    I love rose gold 🙂 It's a little more feminine than regular gold, which makes an interesting contrast again a big, masculine Kors watch. Love it!

    Careful girls. I've had two marc jacobs rose gold watches and one gold michael kors watch (same as above).. the finishes on all three watches wore off. For a $250 watch, that's not cool. I hope, for your sake, it was a bad batch! Because they are GORGEOUS!

      I'd say that's pretty scary, Jess! I will keep you posted on the quality of mine. I definitely agree that a $250 watch should at least hold up its finish, barring a few scratches here and there. The gold watch seems to be the same finish (or coating process) and mine has lasted forever, through everything, so I wonder what makes the rose gold so finicky?

      At any rate, I've only had mine for a few days and it's perfect, but time will tell! I'll reply here if anything changes.

        I'm delighted to know your gold watch has held up! That makes me happy and hopeful for your rose gold watch. And now, I'm not so mad at Michael Kors 🙂 Keep me posted, indeed!

    OMG that rose gold watch is to die for! I'm thinking I may have to make a visit to ShopBop, and see if I can snatch up something PSS-worthy! 😉

    What a great choice with the rose gold! It's so versatile.

    The rose gold is awesome! I've been looking for a new watch to replace my beloved one from Tokyo. Thanks for sharing!

    Congrats on the new watch! Wear it in good health!

    I love this post, probably because I have almost all of those items! Similar taste!

    I got that gold Michael Kors watch for Christmas and have been wearing it every day since!

    Yurman is AMAZING as well! I love mixing them together!

    Great blog!

    Rose Gold seems to be making it's way back in, doesn't it?!
    I have the same MK Gold watch and have worn it nearly every day since getting it from my boyfriend two months ago. It's too beautiful not to wear!



  17. […] since my good friend Kristina at Pretty Shiny Sparkly spoke so highly of this watch, I’ve been having trouble getting my mind off of it. Could this […]

    I've been thinking of buying a MK watch for awhile.. but havent decided yet which color I prefer. Im between the gold one or the white coral just because u can combined it better with ur silver accesories. Tough decision =/
