A popular choice at the beginning of the century, rose gold engagement rings are making a comeback. Rose gold is created by combining pure gold with a copper alloy which gives the metal its warm, pink hue. The vintage appeal of rose gold engagement rings makes them a unique and romantic choice for asking somebody to spend the rest of their life with you.
Varying hues of pink
Depending on the amount of copper added to the gold, the deepness of the red in rose gold will vary. Generally, the more copper in the mix, the darker the red. Although, the colour of rose gold is also affected by the karat of the metal. Rose gold engagement rings with a higher karat are more likely to be a lighter shade. For example, 18k rose gold will be a more pink colour compared to 14k rose gold. Choose your favourite shade of rose gold based on your unique taste.
A life-long symbol of love
Stronger than white and yellow, the copper alloy in rose gold makes it a durable metal. In its pure form, gold is a malleable metal but when combined with alloys such as copper, or in the case of white gold, silver and palladium, it becomes more hardy and durable. For this reason, rose gold engagement rings make for a sustainable, everyday piece of jewellery.
