Each type of gold has different durability based on the metals it’s mixed with. Because the materials within rose gold are so tough, wedding and engagement rings that are made out of it are also the most durable choice between the three common gold types.
Due to the components of rose gold, your wedding and engagement rings may change color during your lifetime. However, the deeper pink is still beautiful and will give your jewelry a natural vintage look.
The rose gold trend can be traced back to 19th century Russia. Sotheby’s shares that “Carl Fabergé, renowned jeweller to the czars, was one of the first to put this precious metal to use in his most ornate creations, specifically his famous Fabergé Eggs.” Eventually, the name changed to rose gold to better describe the pink color of the alloy.
Business Insider reports that “Over the last few years, rose gold has become a favorite, while yellow gold was considered outdated.” Rose quartz was named a Pantone Color of the Year in 2016 and Apple even makes iPhones in the color. It’s safe to say that rose gold is here to stay both in pop culture and the bridal jewelry industry.
