When I was younger I only liked silver jewellery. My Mum wore gold and I thought it was horrendous and that I'd only wear silver forever. How times change - gold has come back in a big way, especially in costume jewellery, and I can hardly remember the last time I wore silver. My real obsession over the past maybe four of five years though, has been rose gold. It annoys me a bit that everybody likes it now, but at least that means I can find real rose gold pieces a lot easier in the shops! QVC have a pretty good selection of rose gold and rose gold plated jewellery right now, and I picked out these two gorgeous rings to add to my ever growing rose gold treasure trove.
You have to love that duck egg blue QVC packaging - it compliments the rose gold rather well too.
This is the Diamonique and simulated morganite rose gold plated ring. I didn't mention that alongside my rose gold obsession, I've also recently discovered morganite, which is a gorgeous pinky-peach stone with goes oh so well with rose gold. It's a little (a lot) out of my budget, but just like they do with Diamonique, QVC sell simulated morganite, which is what's in the centre of this ring, surrounded by little diamonique stones which also go around half of the band.
I love this ring - I think it has a cute vintage kind of feel to it, and it's nice and dainty too. It was only £36 and I've already worn it loads.
I'd sort of been planning to get this arrow ring from Michael Kors - I have a few rose gold pieces from there and they last really well - then I spotted this slightly similar version from QVC. The Diamonique rose gold plated kiss ring has the same sort of shape and style, but the crosses or kisses meet in the middle, and it's closed all the way around. I was concerned that the more open style of the MK one might mean the ring would stretch and become to big or go out of shape. Anyway the QVC version was a little cheaper at £33 and it fits nice and snugly over my knuckle - which is where I'd intended to wear it - and it doesn't slide around or slip off.
I've been wearing both rings together on the same hand like this - I'm not one of those cool people that can pull off six rings at the same time, so even two on one hand is a big step for me! I like how these go together - it's a bit of a clash of a vintage and more modern look. I think this may have encouraged me to mix more of my styles together, and to maybe progress to three or four rings at once on the same hand - I probably need to get some rose gold midi-rings for that.
Are you a fan of rose gold? Where do you buy from?
