Rose gold first originated in the 19th century in imperial Russia. There, jeweler to the czars, Carl Fabergé, blended copper and yellow gold to create a gorgeous pink-hued metal to adorn his celebrated Fabergé eggs. Demand for the alloy rapidly spread.
Originally known as, Russian Gold, the hue of this metal varies dramatically based on the ratio of copper to gold. “True Rose Gold” contains roughly 22.5% copper, 75% yellow gold and between 1-3% silver. The silver serves to lighten the overall tone of the metal.
Although this color has increased massively in popularity, it shows no sign of slowing anytime soon. Penny Goldston, digital fashion editor at Marie Claire, told to the BBC, “I would say rose gold has become a pop culture phenomenon. It’s been around since 2015 but it’s still massively popular.”
It’s easy to understand this alloy’s appeal. Rose Gold offers a unique alternative to the more traditional golds and white metals. The uncommon beauty of the metal can also help rose gold rings to stand out from the whites and yellows of previous generations.
