We usually defer to the watch experts to blog about timepieces, but this one is too good to ignore. Featuring rose-gold plate with silver-tone accents, and a mother-of-pearl dial with Swarovski crystals, the watch alone would be a bargain at $89.99. Lucky for us, it is sold as a gift set with two bonus bangles! Available at Nordstrom stores or on nordstrom.com.
