The story behind rose gold
First used in early 19th century Russia, rose gold became popular after jeweller Carl Faberge used the metal in his famed Faberge Eggs. Thus, this pretty alloy of gold became known as “Russian Gold” in the 1920s and skyrocketed in jewellery trends around the world.
French watchmaker and jeweller Cartier created a line of dazzling rose gold jewellery paired with diamonds and various types of gemstones. The famed “Trinity Ring” by Cartier was a beautiful yet simple gold band in three tones – one in yellow gold, one in white gold and one in rose gold.
Is rose gold jewelelry the same as solid gold?
Yes! Rose gold is real solid gold and just as valuable. Rose gold jewellery will last forever because it’s gold all the way. Rose gold is also more durable than pure 24 karat gold and more resistant to scratching or damage.
Like white gold, rose gold is an alloy of pure gold
Rose gold jewellery is crafted from a blend of 24 karat gold, copper, and silver. Pure, 24 karat, gold is too soft for use in wearable jewellery and is therefore blended with other metals to create harder, more durable alloys.
Copper and silver give the pure metal, the strength and durability required for jewellery, adding a different hue to the yellow metal. The most common alloy of pure gold that makes up 18k rose gold is 75 percent pure gold to 25 percent copper. The deeper the rose gold colour, the more copper has been used, with 14 karat rose gold being a reddish-gold colour, while 18 karat rose gold is a soft champagne pink.
Our designer collections have rose gold jewellery that has various combinations of alloys ranging from 14k to 22k.

Layering rose gold jewellery with different hues of yellow gold
Rose gold jewellery can easily be styled with other metals to add a varied colour dimension to everyday looks. Including another colour dimension to the standard yellow and white gold, rose gold provides designers with the opportunity to craft beautiful fusion pieces, with interlocking yellow, white, and rose gold bands.
Stacking rose gold with gemstone studded vibrant jewellery
