Can something be both trendy and classic? Well, if you're talking about rose gold engagement rings, the answer is a resounding yes. Once called Russian gold, rose gold was first used in the early 19th century by Carl Fabergé in his world-renowned Fabergé eggs. However, the unique pink-hued metal didn't become truly trendy until around 1924, when Cartier used rose gold in his iconic trinity ring. But like everything connected to fashion, the popularity of rose gold (or even yellow and white gold) rises and falls over time. Today, rose gold seems to be riding the wave of popularity, with celebrities like Blake Lively and Leighton Meester sporting their own gorgeous baubles in a delicate rose gold setting. And to be honest, they make it look so good that rose gold engagement rings are finding their way onto wishlists everywhere.

FAQs About Rose Gold Engagement Rings

Before you say yes to a rose gold engagement ring, you might have a few Q's, and luckily I have a few A's to help you determine if this metal type is right for you.

What is rose gold?

Rose gold is an alloy or a mix of gold, copper, and silver. It is the copper that gives rose gold its characteristic pink hue. The more copper in the alloy, the pinker it looks. It's worth noting that there's a common misconception that rose gold is not "real gold" because it's a mix of metals. All gold jewelry is actually a mix of metals. Pure gold is too soft for jewelry-making and requires a mix of other metals to make it strong enough for daily wear. Rose gold, on the other hand, is an extremely durable metal, making it a great choice for those with more active lifestyles or who just want something sturdier.

How much does a rose gold engagement ring cost?

Another common misconception surrounding rose gold is that it's less expensive than yellow or white gold. The reality is that yellow, white and rose gold are priced based on the amount of gold used to make the ring. So, a 14-karat yellow gold ring will likely cost the same as a 14-karat rose gold ring, simply because they contain the same amount of pure gold.

Like any engagement ring, rose gold engagement rings vary in price. Essentially, it all comes down to the karat weight of the gold content in your ring, the carat size and quality of your diamond or other gemstone, and the intricacy of the setting (think: hand engraving, accent stones or diamond pavé detail).

Does rose gold tarnish?

One of the most well-known properties of copper is that it tends to oxidize over time. And while a rose gold ring is just as durable as white gold or yellow gold, you may want to keep in mind that the color of your ring may grow darker and redder over time due to the copper content. It's also worth noting that some people view color change as a benefit rather than a drawback—it all depends on your personal preference. To reverse oxidation, give your rose gold ring a good rub with a jewelry cloth or have it polished by a professional jeweler.

How To Care For A Rose Gold Engagement Ring

Now that you have your dream rose gold engagement ring, it's important to take good care of it. Here are some tips to keep your rose gold engagement ring clean and looking beautiful for years to come:

  • Clean your ring regularly using mild soap and a soft-bristled brush.
  • Remove your ring before engaging in strenuous activity or using harsh chemicals.
  • Store your ring in a cool, dry place, preferably in a padded jewelry box or bag.
  • Take your ring to a professional jeweler once a year for a deep cleaning and inspection.

Taking good care of your rose gold engagement ring will ensure that it remains a stunning piece of jewelry for generations to come.
