Atomic number: 79

Rose gold wedding rings

Our rose gold rings are made of a beautiful alloy of gold and copper - there is no such thing as 'pure rose gold'. Rose gold wedding rings are ideal for those with a taste for tradition and vintage style but who want to be able to have a ring made just for them to their own specifications.

The 'purest' form that rose gold can come in is 18ct - this contains 75% gold with the rest being mostly copper and perhaps a small percentage of silver. The exact proportions of each metal can depend slightly on which supplier we use, and many suppliers keep their percentages to themselves as a trade secret. We also sell wedding rings in 9ct rose gold, which means 37.5% of the metal is gold.

How to care for rose gold rings

Rose gold wedding rings may dull over time from contact with detergents, moisturisers and other chemicals - ideally you would take the ring off as needed to protect it from such substances. If it does dull then even a quick buff with a soft cloth should brighten it up. Rose gold will show scratches from every day wear and tear; the first few will be the most obvious but over time it will develop a more pleasing patina. We can re-polish/refinish the ring for you at any time.

Rose gold properties and usage

Rose gold has little use outside of jewellery and decorative items. It was most popular in the Victorian era, and the trend for all things Vintage means that rose gold items are now popular again - even those newly made.

As with other types of gold, 18ct rose gold is softer than 9ct. This is because 9ct has less pure gold and a higher proportion of harder metals. The colour of rose gold is affected by the carat, 9ct being pinker in comparison to 18ct which appears more yellow.

means gold has been used for decoration throughout history and amongst many cultures.

History

Rose gold became popular at the start of the 19th century, especially in Russia; which has led to it being occasionally referred to as 'Russian gold', as well as sometimes being termed 'pink gold' or 'red gold'. Technically, though, red gold, pink gold and rose gold are different things, as they contain different proportions of copper.
