First of all, thanks to each and every one of you who has left me a comment on this morning’s post. Your support truly does help me!! I am feeling more positive about the whole thing and like lots of you mentioned, am hopeful that this will turn out better than we could have ever anticipated. Thank you for sending the positive vibes my way, and also, for letting me be real for a second and have a bit of a vent sesh. Because I can’t let a day go by without giving you some pretty, we’ll now dive right back in to our regularly scheduled programming:

I have a huge thing for rose gold. The bling of gold with a fresh, feminine touch? Totally sold. My love affair started when I was browsing in Nordstrom last year and spotted a Michael Kors watch in rose gold with a navy blue face. I mean, do I really need to explain how perfect this is? She’s a beaut, that’s for sure.

Rose gold gets it’s pretty pink hue from the addition of copper to the gold. Wikipedia tells me that the style was quite popular in Russia in the early 1800s, and rose gold used to be called ‘Russian gold.’ Another fun fact: the reason some rose gold looks pinker or redder than others is that it has more copper in it! There is, in fact, no such thing as naturally occurring “pure rose gold.”

Pure or not, I think this shade is perfectly lovely and compliments virtually all skin tones. What do you think? Rose gold lover like me, or do you stick with the traditional yellow?

  7. Love #7!! That needs to make its way to my finger stat! xo

  8. I love rose gold – especially in watches. #10 is a hit with me. I think I would still stick with regular gold for the monogram necklace though!

  9. Love the little clutch! It would be perfect to spice up any evening outfit! http://www.confessionsofaprofessionalbridesmaid.blogspot.com

  10. I have that Michael Kors watch and I am obsessed. I love it!

  12. LOVE everything about this post!

  13. love this color too! i nearly drooled when baublebar posted the nameplates in rose gold — so pretty!

  14. I find everything about rose gold to be extremely romantic. Its just really soft and really calming. I bought the traditional gold MK watch and the rose gold one is next on the list! So pretty. P.S. I wish I could take Photoshop lessons from you! I just got it and Im learning!

  15. my fave is the ring and of course it is out-of-this-world expensive! boo :)

    side note, I was in Hong Kong about 4 years ago and one of my very fashion forward friends had just bought a rose gold rolex, I was thinking what a waste of money for something that isn’t even in style… I was totally wrong :)

  16. Absolutely love the watch … and the monogram necklace! The navy face on the watch is killer … heart it!

  17. I have the MK in yellow gold, good taste!
    XO~JD

  18. I’m not that much into the rosy gold trend, but I LOVE the watch!

  19. I have never ever seen rosy gold look so fabulous…..LOVE!

  20. I LOVE ALL OF THESE!!!!!!!!!!

  21. First of all, I love rose gold – especially since it goes beautifully with both silver and gold jewelry. Secondly – I just read your previous post and let me tell you, I know EXACTLY how you are feeling right now. I am currently going through something similar myself but involving a friend and business which is never a good combination. It’s a tough place to be when your future depends on other people. I am also a bit of a control freak and I have to keep reminding myself that a: everything happens for a reason and b: this too shall pass. Hang in there :)

    Best – Kate

  23. so gorgeous! i am so happy my engagement ring is rosegold :) it makes me want to buy lots of other RG jewelry! xo

  24. Gorgeous! I love that sequin bag.

  25. I asked my hubbie for a pair of rose gold hoop earrings from Ippolita for my birthday so I can wear them to work…and I LOVE them. It really is a versatile shade and looks good with everything.

  26. Love love love rose gold – I want a rose gold and black diamond eternity band. I think if I ask my husband for it enough one day I will get it, sounds like a plan right? LOL

  27. Currently obsessed with rose gold too!

  28. Maybe I will jump on the rose gold trend, but it just seems to too trendy to me right now. I may be invest in all sorts of rose gold pieces later that were so 2011-2012. Plus it never had the prestige of yellow or white gold and does not look great on my skin color. I can see it’s appeal…. got to mix things up every now and again.

  29. I love rose gold jewelry! It’s so beautiful. I just came across your blog and I must say that I love it. Keep it up!

  31. Loving rose gold right now! I have a rose gold Michael Kors watch on my wishlist too!

  32. I also love rose gold. I have asked my boyfriend to select a certain special ring in rose gold. :)

  33. I love the BaubleBar monogram necklaced. I got it in gold for Christmas before the rose gold had come out. Very pretty. I get so many compliments on mine.
