Generally, people have the notion that gold is traditionally available in only two colours i.e. White gold and Yellow Gold. But, surprisingly “Rose gold” or “Pink gold” is one of the most highly used and trending gold metal lately. Because of its unique rich colour, it is favoured by all jewellery lovers but still there are certain lesser known facts about Rose Gold.
- Rose Gold derived its outstanding hue when combined with a percentage of yellow gold and a high percentage of copper. The pinkish hue of the metal is due to the presence of copper in it.
- It is believed so that, during the nineteenth century, rose gold was actually known as Russian Gold because of historical importance.
- The best news is, the delicate colour of Rose Gold complements all skin types any-day and is flattering to the skin so, before adorning it we need not have second thoughts.
- Because copper is highly cheap, Rose Gold is quite affordable when compared to White Gold or Yellow Gold and so is Rose Gold Jewellery.
- This metal is considered as a symbol of romance because of its sparkling pinkish shade and often gifted by lovers to their partners to profess their love.
- The combination of Rose gold and gemstones are deadly because the colour of this metal is supreme and blends well with any bright gemstones.
- The amalgamation of Rose Gold and White Gold or Platinumor Sterling Silver (basically any white metal) brings exquisitely contrasting jewellery because of its diverse metal colours.
- Unfortunately, copper is allergic to the skin and for this reason, Rose Gold is considered a hypo-allergic metal.
