Balenciaga Giant Rose Gold Hardware Arena Triple Tour Bracelet In Nero

We have been so familiar with silver, gold and the regular studs of Balenciaga bags and accessories... but I have now become officially obsessed with the new Rose Gold Hardware! A replacement for the soon to be phrased out Gold hardware that many covet, this new rose gold colour has a pinkish oxidised tone that is less bling than gold but more interesting than copper.

I adore the colour so much, the moment I heard from a reader that this coloured hardware is available on their new triple tour bracelets, I reserved a piece at Balenciaga Hilton Hotel in Singapore! I want a black coloured version for its versatility and the rose gold colour simply matches black very well. The combination is somewhat vintage looking with a spot of glamourous biker cool.

So last weekend while scouting the stores, including Balenciaga, for last spur of 50% sale shopping, I happened onto new stock arrivals, and coincidentally my reserved bracelet (originally due to arrive in Aug) is one of them. Definitely one of those days meant for shopping where you are destined to swipe some Visa cards. Another piece of good news, prices for Balenciaga has decreased due to the weak Euro. The bracelet originally costing SGD360 has dropped to SGD290 and Giant Hardware coin purse are now SGD490 instead of SGD560. This is the best time to buy! I just love my new Balenciaga Giant Rose Gold Hardware Arena Triple Tour Bracelet In Nero! Next colour, Cypress!

Sean, you should... it is not too expensive and very versatile to wear:-) Can dress up or down and it still works. Rose gold versions are so lovely!

Hi Toshi, not sure about Sang. Why don't you call the store to check?:-)

Really nice. I want one in sahara beige with silver hardware.

What makes this rose gold? It just looks brassy/coppery.
