Pure 24 karat gold is too soft to be used exclusively in jewelry. It would scratch, dent, and bend. So it’s blended with other metals, precious and otherwise, to create a more durable, beautiful alloy. This gorgeous alloy combines gold with copper, and sometimes silver, to produce a flattering blush. In 14 karat rose gold, the combo is 58% gold. The remaining percentage is made up of copper or copper and silver. The more copper added, the pinker the metal appears.

Depending on the designer, your rose gold jewelry may appear warmer or cooler, letting you pick the perfect piece to complement your skin tone – though that task shouldn’t be too hard. Rose gold in any iteration looks damn fabulous on every. single. skin tone.

Rose gold also adds a dash of warmth to even the most modern pieces. It burst into popularity on the jewelry scene centuries ago, and is enjoying quite the renaissance. So your rose gold trinket will rep for both antique jewelry eras and the hottest trend in fine jewelry.

Rose gold first appeared in the 1800’s in Russia, and was originally called “Russian Gold.” It was popular through the Victorian era, then gave way to the darker mourning jewelry of the late Victorian era and the Edwardian era’s Belle Epoque in platinum. By 1920 the jewelry world was due for a shake up, and Cartier introduced the rolling Trinity ring.

The Trinity ring used yellow, white and rose gold to incorporate all three of the jewelry world’s most popular precious metals. From there, rose gold made brief appearances until platinum became scarce during WWII (it was used as weapons metal.) Gold alloys became popular again for a brief period, with yellow gold leading the pack. White gold and platinum popularity surged in the beginning of the 21st century, and now, here we are, with rose gold basking in unprecedented popularity.

It is the most in-demand metal for engagement rings, everyday fine jewelry, luxury watches and especially stacking anniversary and wedding rings. I’m obsessed with this pretty in pink precious metal, and can all but guarantee that your Valentine will be just as smitten.
