JEWELRY: My Skagen Watch

Yesterday I began my jewelry-series with talking about my Birth Stone Ring from Chinchar/Maloney. As I said, in these posts I'll be talking about my most treasured jewelry and a little bit about it's history and why I like it.

I don't wear a lot of different jewelry and I didn't bring a lot with me when I moved to the US. I normally wear a watch, on or two finger rings and I own a couple of necklaces. I've also recently bought a pair of hoop ear rings, since I don't wear my piercing jewelry anymore, and I'll wear that for extra fancy nights out. 

In this post I'll be talking about one of my newer pieces, My Skagen Denmark watch. I received it as a gift for my birthday in April. Or that is, I actually received another watch as a gift,but decided to change it for this one. I never had a problem with returning gifts - and I'm pretty sure people would rather have me get something that I actually love - especially when it is still a watch, from the same store and brand. I showed it to you guys on Instagram immediatly:
I always loved Skagen watches, and I will definitely get another one, if I were to own another watch. No need for that though, these bad-asses have life-time warranty, and they are actually not super-duper expensive. I love the obviously Danish design, I love their use of gemstones and colors and I love, love, how tiny and classic this one is - It goes with everything. 

As the ring, I always choose yellow gold, so this is why I chose this one. It is only plated though, and is made from steel. This has a Mother of Pearl dial(Which is super hard to photograph) and the time indicators are made of Swarovski crystals, and it has a little line of crystals at the top and bottom. I think in the US, it is sold as "Luxurious Gold Mesh". The outer ring is so polished that it is almost a mirror. The mesh steel band seemed a little hard at first, but it quickly softened up, and now I never notice that I'm wearing it. It is, so comfortable and PRETTY! 

I'm pretty sure this baby is actually on sale in the US right now, if anyone's interested. I like that you can actually buy watches directly from Skagen Denmark in the US, and don't have to go through a retailer!
