Rose gold was first used in 19th century Russia. At the time, it was commonly referred to as ‘Russian Gold’ for its popularity in the region. Now the precious pink metal has found its way back into the mainstream under the name ‘Rose Gold’ which highlights the fine elegant side of gold.

The purity of gold is measured in karats (symbol: k or kt). Pure gold (99.9% gold) is graded as 24k. Lower grades are represented proportionally; 14k gold is 58.5% gold and 41.5% alloy and 18k gold is 75% gold and 25% alloy. Gold is mixed with alloys to strengthen it, as pure gold is too soft for traditional jewelry.

Rose gold is commonly alloyed with copper and silver. Unlike white gold, it does not need to be replated. The color of rose gold will not fade ensuring its eternal beauty.
