Rose gold has become increasingly popular in recent years. It’s a fresh option for people looking for something more modern, and complements many skin tones. But what is rose gold? And is it the right precious metal for you?
First off, is rose gold real gold?
Rose gold contains real gold, but like white and yellow gold, it’s an alloy, meaning it also contains another metal to affect its colouring. Its pink hue comes from the copper it contains. Rose gold is durable and doesn’t tarnish, making it perfect for a ring that’s going to be worn daily for a lifetime! Over time it may adopt a slightly deeper tint due to the copper it contains potentially darkening, however this isn’t likely to be too noticeable and won’t affect the integrity of your ring. At Jeweller’s Loupe we also only use Fairtrade Rose Gold, meaning not only your jewellery beautiful, but it is ethically sourced too.
Which stones compliment rose gold best?
Rose gold has a luxuriously subtle and gentle colour, which is one of the many reasons it has become so popular in recent years. Many stones complement its warm tone, such as pink tourmaline, ruby and red garnet, and if you’re looking for a bit more of a unique look, amethyst, white sapphire and smoky quartz all create a stunning contrast with their cooler tones. Ultimately, it comes down to your personal preference and the type of ring you’re after. Our new rose gold collection features a range of ethically-sourced gemstones including hand-picked pink tourmaline, smoky quartz and diamond.
Which skin tones does rose gold complement?
Rose gold is one of the warmest tones of metal you can find, and its hue compliments virtually every skin tone. It can look great with both warm and cool skin tones alike, and suits those with olive undertones to perfection due to the contrast between the pink tone of the metal and the greenish undertones of the skin.
