Custom Rose Gold Wedding Band at Shira Diamonds
Rose gold is one of many variations of gold engagement rings available. Because pure gold (24 karat gold) is too soft for jewelry, we mix metal alloys in with pure gold to create different colored golds. The three most popular ones include yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold.
Rose gold, increasingly popular as a choice in specialized jewelry, is a gold and copper alloy. There are a few varieties of colors that fall under the ‘rose gold’ umbrella, including red and pink gold. In general, the more copper in the mix, the redder the ring will be.
Overall, rose gold engagement rings are making a comeback. They were popular at the Fin de siècle (turn of the century), and they’re experiencing a revival. Many people love them for their vintage appeal and antique appearing. However, like any jewelry, it’s a very subjective decision. Some people love the brilliance of platinum or white gold, and would rather wear a ring that embodies that aesthetic. Rose gold is also often used in place of white gold in the case of nickel allergies, and in place of yellow gold because rose gold is more durable. In the end, it’s your personal and subjective choice. Of course, feel free to reach out to us at any time if you have questions that haven’t been addressed on this blog post.
