Rose Gold Metal Guide
A truly on trend colour, rose gold has been worn used to create beautiful jewellery since the 1920s but recently saw a huge resurgence in popularity, reflected not only in accessories but also housewares and clothing. It is the perfect gold colour for fashionable jewellery wearers, looking for something truly feminine and delicate.
What is rose gold made of?
This pretty gold colour is created by mixing pure gold with a copper alloy, which creates the well known blush shades we’ve come to love. It also makes for a hardier jewellery material, perfect for rings and bracelets. A rose gold ring created using more copper will produce a redder shade, while a higher carat will look pinker. Bear in mind that rose gold can affect those with copper allergies, so it’s a good idea to choose a higher carat of gold purity when making your selection if you have sensitive skin.
How to look after your gold jewellery:
- Rose gold is a little hardier than its yellow and white counterparts so it’s a good idea to wear separately to avoid it scratching other pieces of jewellery.
- It’s a good idea to remove your rose gold jewellery when completing any rough tasks or using harsh chemicals.
- Regularly check over any precious stone settings and clasps on your jewellery. If you spot any damaged ones be sure to have these repaired as soon as possible.
