Get to know rose, gold, that is
Jun 27, 2013
Gold was once reserved for big time rappers like LL Cool J and Run DMC back in the '80s and that is the era in which fashionistas thought the precious metal would stay. However, there is a new gold in town as of late and its name is "Rose." Rose gold, which is less harsh than traditional gold and boasts a pink hue, has been popping up on the arms, ears and necks of A-list celebrities and you can rock the popular style to look fresh and fabulous this summer.
Looking for a way to jazz up that black cocktail dress? Try adding a few gorgeous rose gold bangles to either arm to transform your simple look from drab to fab with an easy flick of the wrist. While bangles like the 14k Rose Gold-Plated Lattice Cuff Bracelet 7 1/2" will help you stand out at your next fete, mixing metals and fabrics by styling with a rose gold and leather wrap bracelet can give you an edge on the competition.
Stars like Kate Moss and Jessica Alba have been known to mix rose gold with various materials, meaning you can look just like your favorite stars by doing the same.
Bracelets are fun, but adding a chunky rose gold watch to your wrist this summer will get you an A-plus with the fashion world. While actresses like Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox have been donning these timepieces for years, adding one to your collection now is just at relevant. Plus, the gorgeous pink hue of rose gold is sure to help your bronzed summer skin sparkle even more, a total win-win all around.
Even though you can opt for a dainty watch dripping in diamonds, it might be more fun to pick up a more masculine timepiece to go with the easy breezy vibes of summer. Investing in the August Steiner Watch Rose Gold-Plated might help to satisfy both of your style desires thanks to the chunkier body and style of the piece and the rows of crystals surrounding the face.
Summer is the perfect time to add some major fun to your ring collection, since there is perhaps nothing more beautiful than tan hands. While you might want to go big or go home with a large rose gold ring, it's best to let the elegance of the hue shine through with a more delicate piece. However, this just leaves it open for you to accessories with bolder pieces such as silver, copper and rose gold bracelets on your arms.
On the same note, a stunning show-stopper rose gold ring like the 1.80 CT DiamonUltra™ Cubic Zirconia Open Flower Ring In 14k Rose Gold-Plated may be the perfect addition to that LBD you've been dying to rock all season. But remember, since this ring is so fabulous, it's best to keep the rest of your jewels simple when wearing it. A single thin rose gold or black bracelet on one arm is plenty and won't take away from the true star of the evening.
Ladies looking to add some life to their ears may be able to do so with stunning rose gold designs. You can opt for more subtle rose gold studs or have a bit more fun this summer rocking bolder statement earrings. The experts at Cosmopolitan magazine report rose gold studs with a unique shape such as a flower are great for summer since they can easily be dressed up or down.
