rose gold

Gold with a warming touch

Sunday 01 April 2012

Rose Gold  has been out of fashion, as has shiny yellow gold, until relatively recently but has been rejuvenated with a vengeance on catwalks and in jewellery collections around the world. It first became fashionable around the turn of the 19ct century and was particularly popular in Russia at this time. Since then it has been used as a stylish and elegant alternative to yellow gold and white gold. Rose gold is made when copper is alloyed with yellow gold so that a delightful rosy red tint appears in the finished precious metal, it comprises 75% gold, 22.25% copper and 2.75% silver . Called rose, red or pink gold this is once again a popular and fashionable gold colour.
