GIFTS - A Rose Gold Watch For Christmas

I've noticed how much rose gold is rising in popularity, particularly for watches. I've been to lots of press days lately where alternative coloured metals took centre-stage. What I love about rose gold is that it sits less harshly against the skin in terms of its colour, it's warmer and softer. My current watch is horn instead of gold or silver and I get loads of compliments on that too - Michael Kors rocks!

When I had the opportunity to choose a watch from Time2 to review I knew I wanted to go for a rose gold one. I opted for the bracelet style rose gold watch from DKNY above as I thought it would be perfect as a gift for my mum's birthday. She tends to prefer dainty, simple watches so the sleek styling of it was ideally chic. Glitz is great but if you are choosing a watch to wear day in day out then sometimes it's better to keep things simple.

Watches from Time2 come perfectly packaged and well protected to ensure they're immaculate when you give them as a gift. The DKNY watch I chose comes in at a fairly reasonable £89 but it's good quality and feels nice and heavy. Growing up I often went for a DKNY watch because they had plenty of smaller styles - I've got tiny wrists so anything too big looks a little bit ridiculous.

This year I'm away for Christmas for the very first time so I'm doing my shopping as early as possible. In fact, I've been saving bits up for ages. As a busy blogger online shopping is a life-saver, so even though Time2 has stores in the likes of Westfield, it's great that they've also got an easy-to-navigate website. One day I might even be able to browse the over £5000 category (I can dream).

Here are a few more rose gold styles from the women's watches at Time2 that caught my eye...
