Are you looking for a unique engagement ring? Rose gold is becoming more popular for specialized jewelry and engagement rings. Made with a mix of gold and copper alloys, rose gold rings can range in brightness from a rich copper red color to a softer blush pink.
Ultimately, the more copper included in the mix, the more red the metal will appear. Many women are looking for a traditional yellow or white gold appearance with a hint of soft pink to give it a timeless, romantic aesthetic. The vividness of the rose gold color is all based on her personal preference– some women want a bold ring while others want something more subdued.
As you search for a rose gold ring and compact engagement ring box to go along with it, take a look at some of our helpful pros and cons.
PRO: Rose gold rings are durable.
Depending on the type of gold alloys used to create the ring, rose gold rings are known to be extremely durable–especially 18k and 14k varieties. Rose gold is also relatively resistant to scratching, which is ideal for women who are on the go and frequently work with their hands.
PRO: They can be surprisingly affordable.
For their vintage look, rose gold rings are similar in price to other options out there. For example, they’re priced similarly to yellow gold engagement rings. And when comparing them to white gold rings, rose gold can actually be cheaper! If you’re looking for an affordable option, this might be the ring for you.
CON: They are not hypoallergenic.
For people who are allergic to copper, rose gold rings aren’t always the best option due to copper alloys being mixed into the metal. However, if you have a nickel allergy, rose gold is a great alternative to white and yellow gold. If she has an allergy, talk with your jeweler to determine which type of gold is best.
PRO: Rose gold looks great on all skin tones.
Some women are drawn to gold jewelry or silver jewelry, but rose gold is a happy medium! Maybe that’s why it tends to look great on all skin tones. Its warm appearance pulls out the blush undertones in almost every skin tone, and it isn’t as harsh of a contrast as gold or silver. It also pairs nicely with both gold and silver jewelry.
CON: There may not be a huge selection.
Rose gold rings aren’t as widely available as yellow or white gold, but this is changing as rose gold engagement rings become more and more popular. Check out specialized, local jewelers or jewelers that focus on vintage rings.
If she’s drawn to timeless elegance, and you want to give her a distinctive ring with a vintage quality, rose gold is a beautiful option. When people see rose gold, they remember it.
