What is Rose Gold?
Often referred to as red gold or pink gold, rose gold gets it colour from adding copper alloys to yellow gold. It is extremely popular within the jewellery industry. The warmth of rose gold jewellery is flattering for any skin type. A higher karat rose gold will have more gold in it and therefore look slightly less pink than a 14k rose gold.
Wedding bands in rose gold for both men and women are becoming more common as well, for the non-traditional, yet stylish couple.
Durability is another consideration to keep in mind when comparing Rose Gold vs Yellow Gold or White Gold. Incredibly, this softly romantic coloured gold is the strongest of the three, as copper is very sturdy and the resulting alloy is tougher than yellow or white gold
- More durable than yellow or white gold
- Warm pink colour retained over time
- Compliments all skin tones
- Not hypoallergenic, due to copper alloy
- Doesn’t compliment all gemstones
- Colour varies due to karat
- Can be difficult to work with (Soldering)
Naturally rose gold will scratch due to everyday wear. Your lifestyle will dictate how frequently you will need to have your rose gold jewellery re-polished. Taking your piece to a professional jewellery for a clean and polish will bring your jewellery back to life.
