Think Pink!

Everywhere we look, the color pink is making an appearance.  Whether it be pink gold, pink diamonds, morganite or even pink sapphire this trend is in full force!  Morganite is a relatively inexpensive stone that has the same look as the pink diamond (we all remember the  gorgeous 6.1 carat Harry Winston ringBen gave Jen back in 2002 that cost roughly $2.5MM).  Now, you can get the same effect with these semi-precious stones and pair it up with a matching rose-gold setting.  If you’re looking just to rock the pink gold in form of a bracelet or watch, Michael Kors & Charles Garnier both have graciously provided us with some of these beautiful accessories!
