There are several types of gold such as the popular yellow gold, the neat white gold, and the trendy black gold. These kinds of gold have three parts more gold and a part of the other metal that gives it these certain variations. Thus in the same fashion, in creating the balance of pure gold and copper, another alloy is formed—giving birth to "rose gold". And ever since it was first used by famed jeweler Carl Faberge of Russia in the 19th century, its fame is notwithstanding its first appearance several hundred years later.
Some would think that because of the elegance it exudes, it is worth more than other types of gold but certainly, it all depends on the ratio of gold used.
Rose gold has more gold than copper. The combination of these metals is what gives it the vibrant reddish hue unique to rose gold. If you want something lighter though, you can add a portion of silver to achieve the tone of pink gold.
But why not choose pure golds? Why not select that 24 karat piece and feel the wonder and luxury in the air? It’s because mixing metals makes sense. Pure gold is too soft and would easily get deformed with accidental bumps and falls. But with alloys such as the rose gold, aside from this beautiful tint, you’ll also have durability. Wear it easily and confidently anywhere you go without worrying as much.
That said, you cannot deny that aside from these immediate qualities, rose gold gives you that lavish and feminine air like no other.
Currently, its popularity continues to gain momentum as it gets advertised and patronized by famous fashion and luxury icons.
