Rose Gold Engagement Rings from Gemvara
Rose gold engagement rings are seen as more romantic and unique because of their warm rosy toned hue. Since gold is one of the softest or most malleable metals, it typically needs to be mixed with other metals to form an alloy in order to produce jewelry. To create rose gold's distinctive rosy pink color, traditional gold is mixed with copper and often silver to get the perfect shade.
FUN FACT: Just like white and yellow gold, rose gold is produced in various karat ratios, and the pink tone... is typically stronger in lower karat iterations because there is more copper used in the alloy mixture.
