By Kimberly Charles Ralph Lauren once said, “I don’t design clothes, I design dreams” and that is exactly what he has done for women yet again. Not only does Ralph Lauren make us dream of having a closet full of his clothing, but also he also makes us dream of owning even just one piece in the Ralph Lauren Timepiece collection. My particular favorite – for a variety of reasons – is Ralph Lauren’s Stirrup Collection: definitely something every woman should dream of owning.
The Stirrup Collection holds such beauty and class that it makes the wearer go from dull to chic in a simple clasp. This collection comes in a variety of different colors to suit the wearers liking, from a classy stainless steel to timeless white gold and rose gold — in several sizes.
Now, Ralph Lauren releases the Stirrup Petite-Link Steel watch and the Stirrup Petite Diamond watch. I love the 27.70×29.30mm case size, as it has a dainty feminine touch, and whether you prefer lots of diamonds, a little diamonds, or no diamonds, this collection has something for everyone. The full pave’ Stirrup Petite Diamond watch is crafted in 18-karat gold and set wit h867 diamonds and a full-pave diamond bracelet. Also, while it is hard to think you would wear it in the water, it is, in fact, water resistant to 3 bar. The black roman numerals, black railroad style minute track and shiny black sword-shaped hands give this Stirrup watch a classy look.
For those who prefer a lighter approach with the diamonds, the Petite-Link stainless steel model — with alluring snowfall diamond case encrusted with 148 diamonds — is perfect. It has just enough diamonds to catch the light and the eye. Its off-white, lacquered and polished dial set with 12 diamonds is simply to die for. This also has black roman numerals and a black printed minute track. The bracelet of this watch is polished stainless steel in stirrup-shaped links, equipped with a “click clasp” with twin security push buttons. These new Stirrup Petite watches retail from $6,000 to $160,00 for the all diamond version. Shine on.
