The Very Best Women's Rose Gold Engagement Rings

Rose Gold Engagement Rings

Rose Gold. The name might sound like everyone's grandma, but it's actually one of the hottest engagement-ring trends of the past few years. (And it may or may not have to do with Apple introducing rose gold into its iPhone range a few years ago.) White gold and platinum are perennial favorites, but more and more brides-to-be are choosing this warmer-toned metal for their engagement rings. With Clarity offers a wide range of our engagement rings in rose gold. If the option intrigues you, read on for some of the most important things to know about it.

rose gold composition

What is rose gold?

Thanks to its soft pink hue and romantic vibe, rose gold is a sure attention-getter. But where does it come from? Because pure gold is too soft to use in rings, jewelry makers create metal blends, or alloys. Rose gold is one of those alloys, made of gold, copper and silver. The composition of 14-karat rose gold is typically 58.5% gold and 41.5% copper and silver, while 18-carat is 75% gold and 25% copper and silver. The mix of copper with gold dictates the band's ultimate actual shade, which ranges from orangey to pinker or reddish tones. The dusky pink variety has seen a sharp rise in popularity and is considered an on-trend alternative to yellow and white gold.

Rose gold meaning

One of the reasons people opt for rose gold is the meaning. It's been said that white gold symbolizes friendship, yellow fidelity, but rose gold symbolizes love. Rose gold "is more discreet than yellow or white gold, brings warmth to the creation and marries well with colored stones," said Boucheron designer Claire Choisne in the International Herald Tribune in 2012, which noted the hue's rising popularity.

Rose gold engagement rings are durable

Because rose gold is made with a copper alloy, it gets a strength boost from the copper. It's tougher than yellow gold or white gold, which needs a rhodium plating for durability.
