What is Rose Gold?
In the alloying process copper is added to yellow gold to achieve a pinkish hue. Rose Gold comes in 3 color variations, red, rose, and pink, the higher the copper content used in the alloying process the more red the color of the metal is.
Rose gold first became popular in Russia during the 19th century, where it was referred to as “Russian Gold.” At the time Russians were among the only wearers of this unique hue of gold. In the 1920’s rose gold had a spike in popularity when Cartier designed the “Trinity” band, made with 3 intertwining bands of rose, white and yellow gold. French writer and filmmaker Jean Cocteau was known to stack Cartier’s Trinity band on his left pinky, which also contributed to the expansion of this up and coming trend.
