Jewelry designer showcases first 18K solid-gold band for Apple Watch


Los Angeles-based “” offers 18-karat gold replacement band set so that Apple (Gold) Watch Edition can have a bracelet to match the case.

Remember seeing photos of Beyoncé at Coachella flashing her gold Apple Watch face and its matching gold bracelet? Or legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld parading around London wearing his all-gold Watch?

Fact is, apart from those two titans, no one else has ever had a gold bracelet for their Apple Watch. Despite fame and fortune, many other celebrities like Pharrell and Katy Perry who were gifted with a gold “Apple Watch Edition” Watch ahead of its initial release couldn’t get a solid-gold bracelet to go with theirs, either. Even the most fashion-forward Apple aficionados can’t get a solid-gold band for their Apple Watch — because it didn’t exist. Until now. are a jewelry designer, goldsmith and luxury timepiece expert who banded together (pun intended) to manufacture an 18-karat Made-For-Apple-Watch solid-gold replacement band set to match Apple’s gold Watch case.

The 100% 18-K gold replacement bands seen on glide, slide and perfectly fit into position, enabling the user to quickly swap out and attach the bands to the Watch. Priced at $9,500, the replacement band set is a bargain, considering that the Apple Watch Edition (gold) costs between $12,000 – $17,000 — and that just buys you the Watch case with a leather or a rubberized sport band.

However, jewelers speculate that, like Rolex, Cartier and Chopard, whose watches can come with a gold band bracelet, Apple’s would likely cost upwards of $70,000.

The 18K gold Watch band seen on is not gold-plated, nor an alloy, but 80 full grams of serious, solid gold. The band-set is custom, handmade to order by wrist size — and crafted in America, in the jewelry district of downtown Los Angeles, California, USA. Yes, solid means solid: weighty, luxurious, lustrous 18-karat gold. Even the connector-lugs and hidden back clasp are made of gold (white gold for strength).

“I’ve always been in awe of the beauty of a real, solid-gold timepiece. And this, expressly-made to match and attach to Apple Watch, is especially beautiful,” said Jay N. Rosenberg, founder of
“Our design team fashioned this collection of beautiful solid-gold bands to look — and feel — solid, polished, upscale, strong and powerful…to perfectly complement, and complete, the Watch.”

Now the elite, exclusive owner of an Apple Watch Edition can match up their gold Watch case with a solid gold band, to really go for the gold.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
