You can’t of helped but notice the emergence of Rose Gold across the jewellery design world. But what exactly is Rose Gold?

Pure gold is yellow in colour however there are various different colours which can be produced. Gold has been fashioned in shades of rose, green, black, purple, blue, yellow and white/ silver. The chemical symbol for gold is “Au” which comes from the Latin word “aurum” which means rising dawn. The world “gold” comes from an Old English word meaning yellow – “geolu”. The vast majority of gold is used in jewellery. Around 10% is used in monetary transactions whilst other applications include food and drink, since gold (in its purest form) is edible.

White Gold is an alloy of Gold and at least one white metal. This is usually manganese, palladium or nickel. The choice of metal tends to be made depending on what the metal is going to be used for. Nickel tends to produce a strong alloy with gold and is therefore used for constructing rings whilst palladium is softer and therefore lends itself to gemstone settings.

So if White ...
... Gold is the result of mixing Gold and a white metal, then what is used to produce Rose Gold?

Well, that would be copper! Rose Gold is also known as pink and red gold and as it was popular in Russian during the start of the 19th century, it has also been known as Russian Gold. Although the shade is known by various different names, the colour actually depends on how much copper is used in the mix.

The highest karat version of rose gold is 22 karat and known as crown gold. For 18 karat rose gold, around 4% silver is also added to the alloy.

So what does 22 and 18 karat mean? Well, 24 karat is pure gold. Which sounds great, but in practice would be too soft for many uses, including rings. 18 karat gold contains 18 parts gold and 6 parts of another metal (copper for Rose Gold for instance) which makes it 75% gold. 18 karat, yep, 18 parts gold, 6 parts another metal and so forth.

The shade has recently come back into fashion and is making a big splash on jewellery designs across the UK. As well as designs featuring just Rose Gold, its most popular incarnation is to be mixed in with both white and yellow gold which is resulting in some wonderful designs.

The trend is flattering for all skin types which is probably one reason for its recent explosion into the scene. Subtle and sophisticated, it’s a softer way of wearing gold but also mixing it with other shades gives it an endless range of options.

As well as making a splash on the jewellery scene, the colour is also making its way into the world of make up and hair. As autumn approaches, the colour represents a warm, soft and subtle option to compliment an overall look as Autumnal leaves turn golden.
