Rose Gold Rising

Currently right on trend, rose gold can be a chic addition to your jewelry wardrobe.

Yes, gold can blush! Rose gold — also known as pink gold, red gold or blush gold — is a gold alloy made from a combination of gold and copper. It has, as its name suggests, a warm, pink hue. Depending on the ratio of gold to copper, the color of rose gold jewelry can range from orange-yellow to dusky pink to red-orange. The rose gold you’re seeing on the fashion runways and on celebrities is primarily of the pink variety.

While rose gold jewelry is enjoying the spotlight in the fashion world today, its versatile good looks have stood the test of time. Rose gold was popular with royalty in Russia in the 1800s and then saw resurgence in the U.S. in the 1920s.

Warm and hot

The color of rose gold is elegant, timeless and warm. It’s pretty and it’s different, giving you a new color option to express your style. That’s why today you’ll see not only rose gold jewelry adorning the arms, necks and fingers of fashion icons, but also rose gold-colored accents popping up on clothing, accessories and shoes. To allow rose gold to really make an outfit, opt for neutral clothing colors, such as white, beige and pastels.

Plays well with others

Mixing rose gold with white and yellow gold has been popular since a now-iconic ring was introduced by a famous jewelry house in the 1920s. Today, rose gold looks beautiful as part of a mixed-metal ensemble of multiple necklaces or stacked bangles or rings. The warm hues of rose gold beautifully showcase diamonds or other gemstones in the brown, orange, yellow and red color families.

Feels romantic

More couples are selecting rose gold as their metal of choice for engagement rings and wedding bands to give their wedding jewelry a distinctive touch. While rose gold can give jewelry a retro feel, the metal also works well for both classic and modern designs.

For men, too

The warm tones of rose gold make it a perfect accent for men’s jewelry. The unexpected color gives a unique touch to classic watches, bracelets, necklaces and more.

Rose gold is becoming a new classic. Its versatile color makes it a smart addition to a woman’s jewelry wardrobe, providing more options for mixing and matching new looks on trend with today’s styles.
