Rose Gold is a pure gold and copper alloy widely used for specialized jewelry. However, rose gold jewelry is becoming more popular for engagement rings, wedding bands, bracelets, earrings, and other jewelry. It is also known as pink gold due to the resulting pink hue. NYC Wholesale Diamonds features an entire line of rose gold jewelry on its website. www.NYCWD.com
Rose gold, a rising trend, uses pure gold mixed with copper to give the precious metal a pink tinge. First popularized more than a century ago, the resurgence of rose gold is partly due to its distinct coloring. It is less common than its yellow and white counterparts, resulting in a sense of exclusivity when compared to other styles. Rose gold is wonderful in complimenting various skin tones as well.
The highest karat version of rose gold is also known as crown gold, which is 22 karat. Eighteen karat red gold may be made of 75% gold and 25% copper. For 18 karat rose gold, typically about 4% silver is added to 75% gold and 21% copper to give a rose color.
