8 beautiful things that cost less than the rose gold Apple Watch

We're sure we weren't alone in being absolutely entranced by the 18 karat rose gold Apple Watch at the launch event yesterday: Sadly, Apple being Apple, even the rubber-strapped edition of the rose gold Apple Watch is a wince-making £8,000, which puts it just a teensy-tiny bit outside most of our reach.
