What to Look for In Fashion Jewelry This Winter - Women's Pocket Watches & Watch Necklaces

Many people think that pocket watches are for men but this winter season we have seen several Hollywood and New York Stars sporting around their very own fashionable pocket watches that were designed for the female jewelry market. It is a great look and certainly something that is not worn by everyone you meet.

Another great trend is the watch necklace. Popular in Europe, the watch necklace adds a touch of class to any casual or work outfit.  Any woman can afford a trendy or stylish new pocket watch or watch necklace and if you are looking for one that is relatively inexpensive then the fashion jewelry market is just the right place to make your purchase. Fashionable watch necklaces can be purchased for $60 or less and trendy pocket watches made from brass, stainless steel or sterling silver can be purchased for under $200. If you have several hundred or a few thousand to spend you can shop for pocket watches made from 10k or 14k gold. These will be carried by jewelers and upper scale jewelry stores and can make a fabulous gift for someone special.

Unlike big and bulky styles that men tend to carry, women love pocket watches that are smaller in scale and made just for women. You will find that some have beautifully engraved watch cases to ones that have inlaid or handset genuine gemstones. These timepieces can be as plain or as fancy as the woman's tastes dictate and can be found in a variety of styles out in the retail marketplace. With that said, if you have inherited a men's pocket watch from a member of your family, there is nothing wrong with using that pocket watch to accessorize your favorite jacket and outfit.

Women's pocket watches and watch necklaces make great accessories and can set the tone for your outfit in a classy way. If you want to accessorize with something different that everyone else, add a beautiful pocket watch or watch necklace and enjoy!
