All colors of jewelry grade gold are mixed or alloyed with other metals because pure gold is too soft. Rose gold gets its distinct pink color from copper; the more copper present the redder the color. Sometimes called pink gold or strawberry gold, it’s just as durable as yellow gold and white gold.
Warm and approachable, rose gold has been trending for the last decade, but it’s been popular on and off dating back to the Victorian era. It adds a rosy contrast to diamonds and moissanite, lessens the cool tones in pastel gemstones, and makes for an all-over warm effect with yellow, pink, orange and red gemstones.

Rose gold is a great choice for an engagement ring metal: it’s durable, low-maintenance and can withstand a lifetime of wear, including active lifestyles. It’s not a hypoallergenic metal and is not suitable for those with a copper allergy. From a design standpoint, it adds a romantic and dreamy feel.
Depending on your rings style, rose gold can go classic, vintage, or alternative.
