The Beauty of Rose Gold

Design Idea MA2T Earrings

Rose gold is rising to new levels of popularity in jewelry with its subtle, romantic color of gold that adds a statement of femininity to designs. Many refer to this metal as a precious pink or soft champagne rose color. This beautiful blend of gold and copper is more durable and offers a different color interplay than either of its component metals: gold and copper. Rose gold makes us feel pretty and is highly sought after for modern jewelry designs and wedding rings.

According to Accessories Magazine, "Rose gold, a slightly pink hue of gold, is the perfect way to update a classic accessory in a chic, modern and trendy way." Some jewelry blogs have called rose gold "the most feminine gold." And indeed, its character is ultra-warm and soft, which lends itself to ultra-feminine fashions. Rose gold is universally flattering and brings out the subtle blush of the skin in both warm and cool skin tones, making it a perfect choice for jewelry designs.


Rose gold was first introduced in early 19th century Russia by the famed jeweler Carl Faberge in his Faberge eggs and it became known as Russian gold. Rose gold was enjoyed in the United States during the elegant 1920s and Cartier famously brought this metal back into the spotlight more recently with its Trinity Ring, a simple band of three gold colors.
