Rose Gold Engagement Rings
In recent years, Rose Gold engagement rings have seen a resurgence in popularity, as has rose gold jewellery as a whole. First used in Russia in the 19th century, Rose Gold was initially called ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“Russian GoldÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ and it wasn't until the 1920's that it began being used in engagement rings and fine jewellery due to a popularity boost in the United States. Today, the warm pink and gold tones of the metal offer a summery variation to more traditional metals and is ideal for those with nickel allergies instead of white gold.
When it comes to engagement rings, diamonds have long been the stone of choice due to their durability and symbolic nature. The white sheen and clarity of a high quality diamond set against the red & gold tones of a rose gold band makes for a breathtaking engagement ring. Some other popular choices include pink sapphire, morganite and rose quartz.
Rose Gold is more durable than yellow gold but less so than Platinum. Therefore, when it comes to keeping a rose gold engagement ring looking it's best we recommend avoiding contact with soap, storing in a separate soft pouch or jewellery box to avoid tarnishing and polishing with a specialist jewellery spray and a soft cloth.
