Rose Gold Wedding Bands

The surge in popularity of rose gold engagement rings seems to be without end. While the trend picked up steam after Art Deco stylings saw a resurrection in the early 2010’s, it is no longer considered just a fad. With rose gold being so popular as an engagement ring metal, it’s no surprise that many brides favor matching rose gold wedding bands. Since the matched bands nestle perfectly alongside their engagement ring counterparts, brides do not have to worry about damage from the rings rubbing together. In addition to rose gold wedding bands being popular among brides, the color has seen a rising acceptance by men. Occasionally, it is even referred to as “bro’s gold” when used on men’s wedding bands and men’s accessories.

Rose Gold Pendants

In addition to rose gold rings being an excellent choice for a fall wedding, rose gold pendants are another excellent choice. While the rose gold itself is a beautiful color, adding diamonds takes rose gold to another level. The fire and brilliance of traditional white diamonds can really make a necklace a shining star. However, yellow gold can sometimes be seen as ostentatious. Therefore, rose gold has a subtle, classic elegance making it the perfect fall wedding accessory.

What’s So Great About Rose Gold Engagement Rings?

For the last couple years, rose gold engagement rings have been the most popular choice for trendsetters. Between celebrity engagements, the return of Art Deco style, and the hip decision to do things differently, rose gold made a huge comeback. However, there are many more reasons to choose rose gold rings than simply a different look. Keep reading the Adiamor blog to find out what’s so great about rose gold engagement rings.

Classic Style With A Modern Twist

While fine jewelers have been making rose gold pieces for many years, other industries are starting to follow suit. Electronics and cell phone companies are the most recent adopters of the pinkish color as the latest models of everything from laptops to headphones now feature rose gold colorways. In addition to looking great on a smartphone, rose gold elevated gadget purchases from tech trendy to fashion forward with the color’s connection to jewelry. Purchasing a rose gold laptop simultaneously displayed a sense of style as well as luxury. With the adaptation of rose gold colors in their products, Silicon Valley looked to give their products a sense of lavishness from the world of fine jewelry.

A Complimentary, Comforting Color

One of the reasons rose gold jewelry and products became so popular is the color is very complimentary of skin tones. The pink hues of rose gold mimic the way makeup is applied to provide color to the face. Therefore, rose gold provides a youthfulness that is very desirable, especially for the stylish. Additionally, researchers believe the tones provide peaceful reassurance. For this reason, many associate rose gold with a mindfulness that lessens stress.

Rose Gold Is Intentionally Different

While smartphones are simply given a coat of paint, the history behind the color might be driving its millennial popularity. Rose gold jewelry is created by mixing gold metal with copper. This intentional mixing of pure gold with lesser metals is a deliberate move to create something new. In this manner, rose gold jewelry stands out from the yellow gold crowd while maintaining its value as gold. In fact, both 18k yellow gold and 18k rose gold contain the same percentage of the precious metal.

While fashion trends rise and fall, rose gold has been a mainstay of fine jewelry for centuries. From its comforting properties and flattering tones to its luxurious look, rose gold is clearly a great choice for an engagement ring. Start shopping for the perfect rose gold engagement ring today!

How Is Rose Gold Made?

Rose gold originally gained popularity in the United States and around the world during the Art Deco period of the 1920’s, but since then it has remerged as one of the most popular engagement ring metals on the market. While the resurgence of love of the Jazz Age has dwindled, vintage inspiration continues to dominate the design world. From musical festival fashion to television, the boutique chic look has evolved. However, rose gold engagement rings are still a favorite choice for everyone from celebrities to millennial couples. While this gold has timeless elegance which keeps it looking great year after year, many people are unaware of how rose gold gets its beautiful color.

How Is Rose Gold Made?

Gold itself is a very soft metal, and therefore pure gold is rarely used in the creation of jewelry. However, in addition to its value, gold is sought after for creating jewelry because it will never rust or tarnish. Therefore, 24k pure gold is often alloyed with other metals for strength. There is a large number of metals that can be combined with gold for the purposes of making it stronger, including palladium, nickel, and copper. Each of these metals will make the gold more durable and resistant to scratching. However, alloying gold with another metal can change more the strength; it can also change the color. Alloying nickel with pure gold, for example, will create white gold. On the other hand, rose gold is made by mixing 24k gold with copper.

Is Rose Gold Still Valuable?

Although rose gold has a pinkish hue that produces its desirable, vintage look, many people are curious as to whether their rose gold engagement ring is as valuable as their traditional gold counterparts. The short answer is yes because a 18k gold ring will have the same amount of pure gold as a 18k rose gold ring. Both rings use approximately 75% of pure gold with a combination alloys to give the jewelry more strength. This means rose gold contains around 25% copper, although sometimes silver is also used to produce specific tones of rose.

Other Types of Rose Gold

At Adiamor, we carry both 14k and 18k rose gold metals for producing custom engagement rings and diamond jewelry, but these are not the only types of rose gold being made around the world. For example, the highest grade of rose gold, which is also known as crown gold, is 22 karat. A variation known as red gold is often found in jewelry throughout the Middle East. Red gold contains higher percentages of copper and less silver, so the color is less pink.
