I am going to get the rose gold and wanted a case that would not hide it completely but still protect and compliment it. I went with this pretty case by Rifle Paper co. I think it will look beautiful with the rose gold!
A bit of splurge ($41.95 with shipping) but so is this phone! I love this company too, they make beautiful stationary products.

Now fingers crossed I get my phone!

I decided to see what it might look like with the pink gold phone and fiddled with it in photoshop, think it looks great.
I have no connection this company fyi, looked online at a few options that were similar, that would show at least some of the pink but still have a pretty pattern. Kate Spade has a few and I found a few others searching pinterrest.

This was my favorite...

I was just going to ask...

I drop my phones. I'm not shy about that. Concrete, carpet, hard wood, etc. Never shattered a screen. One thing I look for in a case is a front lip. The Rifle Paper company ones seem to be good.

Anyone have any other suggestions for clear-ish cases that have a front lip?

not sure what you mean by "lip"? You did make me realize I don't know what the front of this looks like!

Where if you lay the phone down on it's face, it is laying on the case rather than the phone. The lip is just so that if it falls on the ground, it doesn't hit the phone but rather the case.

Ok, found a youtube review and it looks as I expected... whew..and now I understand what you mean by "lip"...

here are two other cases I considered:

the sweet pea by sonix ava at Nordstroms $35 I think




and this Kate Spade one also ava at nordstrom or her stores, priciest at $45




Please feel free to post other girly options!!

p.s. I got my phone! Pre-order was a success and I'll get it the 25th!

I don't know if I'll get bored of pink :) My current space grey 6 has a pink case. I really did want something clearish to show off the rose gold though so I'm glad there are tons of options.

Me too! Would be a shame to cover up such a pretty color... but I do need the protection!

Just an important note for anyone interested in the Rifle Paper co case... I looked at these on Amazon too but saw that some sent were a counterfeit version, read the reviews and you will see a photo of the case. It is not the same at all.

To be safe I ordered mine from their actual site even though I had to pay the shipping.

All of these cases look amazing! I love Rifle Paper co. and Sonix but I have been considering this one for my rose gold 6s:

It gets a very poor review, just FYI.
I just saw that too which is very disconcerting.

Luckily I am also considering Apple's Stone colored silicone case or the Apple leather Rose Gray Case. The two are very similar but I am just not sure which would be better. I think I am also going to get the new Dock in the Rose Gold color too. Though my sister says it'll be pink overload.
