Despite the popularity of white and yellow gold, rose gold engagement rings are becoming increasingly popular. Known for its brilliance and soft pink hue, rose gold can be a unique choice, lending itself to a romantic, and in some cases, vintage appearance. Many men also prefer rose gold in their wedding bands due to the variety of “earthy” shades available depending on the blend of metals used.
How It’s Made
Rose gold is created by the mixing of gold with a copper alloy. Although the resulting appearance is soft and pink in colour, rose gold is actually much more durable than white or yellow gold. Many shades can be created, and generally the more copper in the mix, the more red the colour will appear. Due to its popularity in Russia, during the turn of the century, rose gold was often referred to as “Russian gold”, although the term is rarely used these days.
As with many things there are, in fact, both pros and cons to choosing to have your engagement ring made in rose gold:
- More durable: Rose gold is very durable and strong, even more so than white or yellow gold.
- It does not require rhodium plating, as is the case with white gold.
- Rose gold generally compliments all different skin tones.
- -It can go great in Vintage styles.
- It is not hypoallergenic, in the case of people who are allergic to copper.
- May not be as widely available as yellow and white gold.
As with most jewellery choices, it all comes down to the preference of the wearer and these are just some considerations for when the time comes to shop for an engagement or wedding ring.
