The Beauty of Rose Gold Engagement Rings

After years of platinum and white gold being a clear favourite for engagement rings, rose gold is beginning to increase in popularity. Often referred to as pink gold, the rosy colour of the metal is created when a small amount of copper is mixed with yellow gold. The Assay office state that “The addition of copper considerably heightens the yellow colour of gold, the alloy passing through different grades of yellow to red-yellow, and finally to the rich red of copper, as the proportion of copper is increased.” 


Rose gold has very similar qualities and properties to yellow gold, making it ideal for contemporary diamond jewellery pieces. The highest carat weight available for rose gold is 22ct. For complex, detailed jewellery pieces, like engagement rings, we recommend 18ct rose gold. Rose gold has been fashionable since the 19th century, particularly in Russia, which is why it is sometimes referred to as ‘Russian Gold’. In the Mid-Victorian era, everyone wanted a piece of rose gold jewellery. Pink was seen as the colour of romance, and so the pink-hued jewellery became the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. Rose gold adds a unique and romantic twist to any engagement ring. An added bonus is that rose gold is the strongest of the three golds, yellow, white and rose gold, as it is mixed with copper resulting in a tougher alloy. From a simple solitaire band, to a more elaborate multi-toned ring with different gold tones we have a wide range of rose gold engagement rings and can even create a bespoke piece just for you. At Steven Stone we recommend the white gold setting to hold the diamond as it helps bring out the white colour of the diamond, whilst the rose gold would add a tint of pink to the diamond.
