Rose gold jewelry has been popping up everywhere in the past few years. It seems to be an increasingly popular choice for necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and engagement rings. While nowhere near as popular as white gold or yellow gold jewelry, rose gold jewelry is becoming super on trend. If you’re intrigued by rose gold, read more to find out.
What is Rose Gold?
Even if you are familiar with rose gold, you may still be wondering what it is. Rose gold is an alloy made from a combination of pure gold and copper. The combination of copper and gold creates the color of rose gold jewelry. There is no such thing as a solid gold ring since gold is too soft of a material to wear on its own. White gold and yellow gold are also an alloy made of different materials. For example, the most common alloy of rose gold is 75 percent pure gold to 25 percent copper which creates 18k rose gold. A bit of silver may also be added for a more pink hue of rose gold. The higher the percentage of pure gold, the higher the karat of gold the jewelry will be. This also affects the color of the gold. 18k rose gold will be slightly darker than 14k rose gold.
Benefits of Choosing Rose Gold
Rose gold is such a unique look. It’s perfect for someone that wants to stand out in a way that isn’t over the top. Rose gold can still be simple, dainty, and feminine, but it makes someone want to take a closer look and admire one’s jewelry. Rose gold is so unexpected and can work for so many different styles. You can style it in a Boho way by stacking and layering bands and necklaces with many different diamond shapes, or style it in a super modern and minimal way by wearing thin single chain bracelets and necklaces with a single diamond and solitaire or pave rings with more modern shapes like emeralds and radiants. The possibilities for styling rose gold are endless. Rose gold also adds lots of warmth to your skin tone. Because of the warm hue, it brings out the warm colors in your skin. It can bring out the blush tones in pale skin and make darker skin look extra glowy.
Downsides of Rose Gold
While there are so many amazing qualities to rose gold, there are a few things you need to consider when choosing rose gold jewelry. Because of its high copper content which gives it its color, rose gold is not hypoallergenic. If you have an allergy or sensitivity to copper, rose gold may irritate your skin. Another thing to consider when choosing rose gold is what other jewelry you have to pair it with. If you own only yellow gold jewelry, rose gold isn’t the best option to pair with yellow gold. When paired together, they tend to clash because of their warm tones. The only way to pair rose gold with yellow gold is if you mix in some white gold or silver to your jewelry stack to create an intentional mixed metals look.
