With both a modern and vintage aesthetic, rose gold is one of the most popular metal choices for custom engagement rings. The rosy pink tones make diamonds pop in a ring setting and the neutral tone looks beautiful with every skin tone.
From the time we wrote our last blog post about rose gold engagement rings, rose gold has taken the jewelry world by storm, and it’s here to stay.
Rose gold is an alloy (mix) of pure gold, silver, and copper. It is a reddish-pink metal frequently used to create fine jewelry.
This material was first used in the famous Faberge Eggs by Carl Faberge in 19th century Russia. Rose gold rose to popularity in America in the 1920s, frequently used by Cartier in mixed metal designs. This tone has experienced rolling spikes of popularity ever since then but now is here to stay.
Since pure 24k gold is too malleable to be used on its own, it is alloyed with other metals. In this case, it is alloyed with copper and silver. 14k means it has 14 parts pure gold and 10 parts alloy. 18k means it has 18 parts pure gold and 6 parts alloy.
Many jewelers only offer 14k because it can be difficult to see the difference between the two as well as expensive to stock both. However, at Joseph Jewelry you have a choice between the two. 14k rose gold is a bit pinker while 18k is more orange because of its higher level of gold content; the high gold content also makes 18k a bit more expensive.
Rose gold is as durable as yellow gold and white gold and is a great choice for a custom engagement ring. Rose gold doesn’t require maintenance over time as white gold does; it won’t ever lose its rosy color.
All engagement ring designs can be created in rose gold! It can also be used in a two-tone design with white gold to create a stunning effect.
