Top 8 Unique Vintage Rose Gold Engagement Rings

Article by Kate

We don’t want to make the other metals jealous, but rose gold is extra special and we are going to tell you why. Firstly, it’s a romantic warm color that makes any skin tone look radiant- a few years ago people were even dying their hair rose gold left and right! Secondly, it looks amazing with both white and yellow gold, adding extra spice to your jewelry collection. The "tri-color" of white, yellow, and rose gold has been a hit on the fashion scene for several years now- we don’t see that changing anytime soon.

 

Rose gold gets its color when you mix pure gold, copper alloys, and a small amount of silver. A typical formula may look something like 74 percent gold, 22 percent copper, 4 percent silver- the more copper, the more red the piece; and the less copper, the more pink. Rose gold became popular during the Victorian age and the 1920s. Both time periods were full of highly artistic, lavish lifestyles. In the 1920s particularly, the stylish and fashionable women covered themselves with dazzling jewels. Inspired to add more color, jewelers of that time introduced highly creative designs favoring the use of rose gold to add warmth and femininity.

 

Another reason we love rose gold is how it looks in a vintage style. Rose gold doesn’t tarnish, but after many years it can appear darker due to the copper part of the rose gold darkening. Many people actually seek this out for a more vintage look for their jewelry! So we say go with a vintage style to amplify this effect to your jewelry! Check out our Vintage and Accented Rose Gold Engagement Rings for your very own elegant piece of fine jewelry.
