4 Interesting Facts About Rose Gold Wedding Rings

Rose gold is making its way back into the mainstream and we couldn’t be happier about it! If you’re considering a rose gold engagement ring or wedding ring for your upcoming marriage, these are four interesting facts about the metal that you should know!

Rose gold is more durable than white or yellow gold

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.


Rose gold darkens with age

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. 


Rose gold was originally called “Russian Gold”

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. 

Rose gold is facing a resurgence in popular culture

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Insider reports that “Over the last few years, rose gold has become a favorite, while yellow gold was considered outdated.”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.
