Rose gold engagement rings – often referred to as pink gold, have recently become a popular metal in the world of engagement and marriage proposals. The rosy colour of the metal is created when yellow gold is mixed with a small amount of copper. In terms of quality, rose gold has the exact same properties as yellow gold, making it perfect for use in fine jewellery pieces. The highest karat weight for rose gold is 22cts, but for intricate, detailed fine jewellery pieces like engagement rings, bracelets and more we recommend 18ct rose gold.
