Rose gold engagement rings and wedding bands
For any couple, getting engaged is a huge milestone moment in their relationship and a beautiful ring is the perfect way to mark the occasion. Whether you opt to choose an engagement ring together or you want to surprise your loved one with a romantic proposal complete with stunning ring, there is a huge array of rings out there to choose from. Whilst many couples still prefer traditional yellow or white gold rings, rose gold rings are becoming an increasingly popular choice and it really isn’t hard to see why.
What is rose gold?
Rose gold is actually a metal alloy that is made from a careful blend of copper and yellow gold to give it its characteristic rose- coloured hue. The percentage used in the mix will dictate the shade of rose gold that is produced, with shades ranging from a more orangey tint to pinker and even red tones. Rose gold jewellery with a duskier pink shade is very much seen as the current on-trend alternative to white or yellow gold when it comes to engagement or even wedding rings.
You may be surprised to learn that rose gold jewellery is not a new phenomenon. In fact, its popularity can be traced back to the 1800s in Russia. It was actually so popular back then there that it was often referred to as Russian gold. In the 1920s Louis Cartier created the Trinity ring with its stunning intertwining design of white, yellow and rose gold which saw popularity of rose gold rise even further.
Why should I choose rose gold?
For many couples, choosing an engagement ring together is the new norm, and in keeping with this move away from the more traditional conventions rose gold engagement rings offer them something that is a little different. The warm hues and dusky colours of rose gold engagement rings conjure up images of romance, and they offset a simple diamond in a stunning setting beautifully. Some people feel that white or yellow gold jewellery, whilst stunning to look at, can be a little harsh against their skin tone. Rose gold, on the other hand, seems to have an affinity with a much wider variety of hair and skin tones, which is perhaps why rose gold jewellery has seen such a rise in popularity.
