Rose gold jewellery isn’t new by any means. It was hugely popular for jewellery in 19th century Russia – earning its nickname of Russian gold – and featured heavily in the Art Deco period of the 1920s, then later experiencing a revival during the 40s and 50s.
However, over recent years rose gold has made something of an impressive comeback, and not just for jewellery. It seems like you can’t switch on the TV, open a magazine or see a marketing campaign these days without this beautiful blush colour featuring somewhere.
Since Apple released their first rose gold iPhone in 2015, this colour has found popularity across the world of fashion, interiors, homeware and even cars. Such is its continuing appeal that Pantone named rose quartz (exactly the same colour) as their colour of the year in 2016.
There are several reasons that rose gold jewellery is developing a growing fan base. We’ve seen more and more enquiries over the past few years for rose gold pieces, such as these gorgeous rose gold men’s rings.
It’s a great choice for both men’s and women’s jewellery as it’s considered a neutral colour, and it also works wonderfully in dual-coloured items, pairing perfectly with yellow gold.
Because it’s created by mixing yellow gold, silver and copper, you might question its purity – but in this regard, gold of any colour has to have the same percentage of pure gold for its assigned karat in order to be issued a hallmark.
Another great reason to choose rose gold is that it actually improves with age. As the copper that gives it its unique hue starts to tarnish, the red tones deepen slightly, developing a stunning vintage appearance.
So if you want to be “on trend” and shun the white gold and platinum jewellery that dominated the style stakes for years, bag yourself a beautiful piece of bespoke rose gold jewellery – and if you have a design in mind, we’d love to help you make it a reality!
