Ladies Two Tone Watches: For the Love of Silver and Gold

Updated on November 24, 2010

Oh dear. I remember a time and it wasn't too long ago when a girl was forced to choose between silver and gold for all her fashion and jewelry needs. For a while, if she wanted to be seen as "modern", she had better chosen silver, too, as gold was perceived as gaudy in many, many circles.

Well, those days are over. Once again, gold is fashionable, modern and to anyone with a clue, is not perceived as gaudy. Gold is in fact classy.

But wait! Not only can us women now wear gold again, it's okay for us to wear both gold and silver at the same time! I honestly didn't see this one coming but the time is now here. I love it when fashion rules go out of fashion. The less I have to worry about what I wear, the better.

Where the ability to combine the looks of these lovely metals really comes in handy is when buying ladies two tone watches.

Now that it's okay to wear silver and gold at the same time again, do not limit yourself to wearing all your silver jewelry with just your silver watch and all your gold jewelry with just your gold watch. Perhaps you weren't/aren't so foolish but this is what I used to do! I felt so restricted to have to do this so like I said, I love it when fashion rules go out of fashion.

The best thing to do is when buying your next women's watch, buy one of the two tone varieties. You will get a lot of mileage out of this, baby, and here's why:

Like I said, while it's now okay to combine silver and gold between your jewelry and the watch you're wearing, it's the ultimate if you have a ladies two tone watch because this piece can act as your centerpiece and will go really well with, say - a gold pair of earrings, your white gold wedding band, maybe a silver chain around your neck and whatever color metal hardware happens to be on your purse! A two tone watch will really play well off whatever colors you're wearing.

You can still wear an all silver or all gold watch with either silver or gold jewelry, but it just doesn't look as good as when you mix it all up with the two tone watch. With the ladies two tone watch, you are making a statement that you are a modern woman who doesn't have to choose.

See how pretty this ladies two tone watch by Citizen is that you just scrolled by? Years ago, I would have puked but now I love it and want one for myself. Funny how one's opinion can change, isn't it?

      I love two tone watches because they match either gold or silver jewellery and I love to have everything matching.

      LOL - as I am traveling here in Guatemala, eating with the local chickens and dogs that roam the restaurants that are more inline with my budget, it is nice to know about style!

      Silver and gold together - what a great combo. Next, wearing fiat money will be in fashion!

      Keep me posted on the latest trends, purpleone, I find it very entertaining, the importance of style!

      Good hub, and enjoyed reading it.
