A rose gold engagement ring features a type of gold with a warm pinkish hue due to the presence of copper in its alloy. It’s become popular for engagement rings due to its warm romantic color.
One of the many benefits of choosing a rose gold engagement ring is its versatility — creating complimentary contrast with colored stones like Blue Sapphires and Grey Moissanite. In addition, when paired with white or colorless stones like Lab-Grown Diamonds and White Moissanite the stone in the design pops and truly showcases the ring.
What Type of Metal Are Rose Gold Engagement Rings Made Of?
Since colored golds are not naturally found in nature, rose gold is developed by combining different metal parts. A traditional 14k colored gold is achieved when 14 parts of gold are mixed with ten parts of various metals. Each gold color is then achieved with a different alloy ratio blend for those ten parts to achieve its desired color. For example, rose gold metal, in particular, has more copper in its alloy to achieve its warm pink rose hue.
