The Importance of Rose Gold

Rose gold is a metal notable throughout the history of different fashion eras. Rose gold, known historically as “Russian gold,” was first introduced as a fashion jewel during the 19th century. The warm-toned, precious metal then dominated the Victorian era, along with yellow gold, and later became incredibly popular with jewelry lovers in the 1920’s. This style is now considered “retro,” because of its distinguished bold and three-dimensional finish it gives to jewelry. There are many reasons why this blushing alloy keeps weaving in and out of fashion trends, but rose gold has definitely made its way back as the aesthetic choice for jewelry today.

There are many factors that contribute to the desire for rose gold. Rose gold includes hues of red and pink gold tones that correlate to the feelings and emotions of people. The blush hint of gold expresses an appeal of compassion, composure, and warmth. The subtle touch of red and pink is a perfect representation of romance, and has an elegant calming nature. This explains why rose gold is leading gold setting in fashion jewelry. Rose gold is the metal of choice among brides because of its vintage appeal complimented by its romantic connotation.

Rose gold is not only a highly desired jewelry item, but it’s also a highly desired color for electronic goods.

Rose gold is produced by mixing gold with copper alloy. By increasing the concentration of copper, the redder it becomes. Since 24k pure gold is too soft, metal alloys are added to gold creating yellow, white, and rose gold. In comparison to yellow and white gold, rose gold is more durable and surprisingly more affordable. Another advantage that rose gold has over yellow and white gold is that it doesn’t require rhodium plating. Rhodium plating is a type of metal plating, which prevents an object from being damaged and improves color quality. Although rhodium plating sounds like a great way of protecting and enhancing your gold, rhodium plated gold cannot be resized or fixed. However, rose gold is very special since rose gold color intensifies with age; therefore improving the color quality with time, rhodium plating is not required.
