An engagement ring is the symbol of the true start of your journey together. While wedding rings celebrate a marriage, engagement rings mark the point at which two people first commit themselves completely to each other. In that sense, they are perhaps the most special rings, particularly for women.
Rose gold is the ideal choice for jewelry to mark this special occasion.
Why Rose Gold?
Gold has been the preferred choice for celebratory jewelry for thousands of years because of its high value and also because the physical properties of gold make it very desirable.
However, gold jewelry comes in a variety of shades and hues ranging from pure yellow to light yellow to tones of red. These tones are the result of varying percentages of other metals present in the metal.
Rose gold is one of the most elegant and unique variations. Its characteristic tinge is the result of the presence of copper and silver. The quantity of the two metals with the gold changes the appearance of the alloy. Here is a quick guide:
- 18K red gold is 75% gold and 25% copper;
- 18K rose gold is 75% gold, 22.25% copper and 2.75% silver;
- 18K pink gold is 75% gold, 20% copper and 5% silver;
- 12K red gold is 50% gold and 50% copper.
Rose gold contains the highest percentage of precious metals (gold and silver) of these four popular variants.
