Rose Gold Engagement Rings: A Shopper's Guide

You've waited months for this moment. For months, you've dreamed about the moment you'll formally ask your girlfriend to spend the rest of your lives together. All that's left to do is choose the ring she'll love the most. In your conversations about getting engaged and wedding jewelry, you remember that she mentioned enjoying rose gold pieces, but what is rose gold?

As you shop for wedding jewelry, it's a fantastic idea to learn about different kinds of metal, the quality of materials you prefer, and the types of diamonds you fancy. Rose gold has gone in and out of fashion over the last century, and it has become an increasingly popular option for jewelry in the past fifteen years. If you're unfamiliar with this metal choice, let's explore rose gold and determine if it's an appropriate choice for wedding jewelry. 

What Is Rose Gold? 

Rose gold is an alloy composed of real gold, copper, and silver. Often, this alloy is around 75% gold, 4% silver, and 21% copper, giving it a slightly rosy tint. In comparison to pure gold, this alloy is quite affordable. The copper in the alloy also makes the material incredibly durable, meaning this metal will last for decades. 

Is Rose Gold More Expensive?

As we mentioned, this alloy features only 75% pure gold along with around 20-25% copper composition. This ratio makes rose gold one of the more affordable jewelry choices. Compared with yellow gold, this alloy is every bit aesthetically pleasing as its counterpart and offers a financial advantage. If warm-toned affordable jewelry is your thing, a rose gold engagement ring might be for you.

Will Rose Gold Jewelry Last? 

Can you trust a rose gold engagement ring to endure years of wear? The copper in rose gold jewelry makes it incredibly durable compared to pure gold. At the same time, the pure gold in the rose gold alloy will also keep the metal from tarnishing over the years. It's as good of a choice for wedding jewelry as any since it's both tough and long-lasting.

Is Rose Gold Appropriate for Wedding Jewelry? 

As we mentioned, rose gold may feel like a new choice for wedding jewelry. In reality, this metal has been well-loved since the early twentieth century. It's proved itself over many decades, making this metal an appropriate choice for wedding jewelry. If you enjoy warm, romantic undertones in your jewelry, rose gold is a charming option for your engagement ring.
