Glamorous Gold Watches For Summer

I have to admit that I'm a real fan of gold. After years of wearing sterling silver and platinum...I've gone back to my jewelry box and began to sport more and more gold jewels. I have not ever owned a gold watch because, quite frankly, they are too expensive. I mean to say they were too expensive, but now days many manufacturers like Michael Kors watches are featuring surprisingly affordable gold plated versions of their timepieces. Gold plating has been around for many years and the technique has just kept improving. A gold plated piece can last and look great for a very long time, and when the plating begins to wear thin, you have the option of re-plating the piece.
This summer season I predict that you will see a lot more gold watches on the beach. The warm gold sparkle goes wonderfully with the summer sun and I for one think this is a trend that will really take off. One fine example of a tasteful gold timepiece can be found in the Michael Kors MK5039 women's Chronograph. This luxuriously appointed timepiece features, not only gold, but other extravagant materials, as well. The ladies chronograph has a beautiful white Mother-of-Pearl dial with matching white sub dials. The hour markers are lit up by brilliant Swarovski crystals, which only add to the elegance of this piece. In addition to the glorious gold, Michael Kors has designed the bracelet with a row of horn resin. The outcome is fantastic and the resin accent tones down the glittering gold just enough. Unbelievably, this ladies timepiece is priced under $200.
Many of you might be thinking, "I'm not going to wear fake gold". I know this, because I didn't understand how plating worked until recently. The fact is that in the plating process, genuine gold is layered over stainless steel. The result is a strong and durable coating that lasts for years. The feel is actually lighter and easier to work with, and the look is the price stays down.
Trust me, no one will ask you if that is a solid gold watch on your wrist; they will just look at it and admire your taste and sense of style. Gold is back and in a big way.
