Tips For Buying Rose Gold Wedding Rings
Set Off Her Skin Tone — There’s no need to worry about whether the unique color of rose gold will complement your love’s skin. Rose gold highlights the blush undertones in almost every skin tone, ensuring your love will look beautiful no matter how how light or dark her skin is.
Downright Durable — Because rose gold is created from a combination of copper and gold, it has several interesting qualities. One of the most striking features, of course, is its pink coloring. But one of the most practical of its features is its durability; the strength of the copper makes these stunning rings stronger than yellow or white gold.
Before Making A Bold Choice — Most women will absolutely adore halo rose gold wedding rings. But before you make the leap and purchase one, check out your significant other’s jewelry. Does she wear a lot of rose gold? Great—go ahead and take the plunge. Does she have gold and silver, but not a lick of rose gold or copper jewelry? Casually ask her opinion on it. Rose gold is not hypoallergenic, since it is infused with copper. If your loved one has sensitive skin or a known allergy to copper, she could experience an allergic reaction.
Rose for Romance — Any engagement ring is going to be romantic. After all, you are declaring undying love for someone. But the unique color of rose gold is even more romantic than your typical yellow or white gold—and is sure to make your bride-to-be blush with pleasure.
History of Rose Gold Engagement Rings
Although it’s certainly all the rage now, rose gold has been popular in the past, too.
Originally called “Russian gold” because of where it first appeared in the 1800s, rose gold really took off during the Victorian era, a time in
which romance was especially celebrated due to the public affection between English monarchs Victoria and Albert. Rose gold dipped in popularity until 1920, when Cartier began selling its its Trinity Ring, which incorporated yellow, white, and rose gold all in one piece.
A few other brief rises and falls in popularity eventually led to a comeback in the 1950s, when Audrey Hepburn’s husband Mel Ferrer gifted the stylish star a stackable set of engagement and wedding rings in yellow, white, and rose gold.
Today, rose gold’s popularity continues to rise. More and more people are purchasing rose gold jewelry—especially engagement rings, due to their romantic coloring.
