Everything's Coming Up Roses… Rose Gold, That Is!
February 12, 2018
The rose gold trend continues to hold strong as a popular metal for modern jewelry. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we wanted to answer some common questions about this beautiful and versatile metal.
How is rose gold made? Is it real gold?
Rose gold is pure gold that is alloyed with copper to produce the rose color. The more copper alloy in the metal, the deeper the rosy tones will be.
Is it durable?
Yes, rose gold is very durable due to the strength of the copper. It’s actually tougher than white or yellow gold.
What about allergies?
Rose gold is also often used in place of white gold in the case of nickel allergies. Of course, if you’re allergic to copper, you’ll want to use a different metal.
Will rose gold look good on my complexion?
This hue is versatile and pleasing against many skin tones. Stop in to see for yourself.
Is there a special meaning behind giving rose gold?
It’s often said that white gold represents friendship and yellow gold means fidelity, while rose gold represents love.
Can you make engagement rings out of rose gold?
Yes, we can! Rose gold engagement rings were popular during the turn of the century and are currently experiencing a revival. Many people love them for their vintage appeal and antique appearance.
