In recent years rose gold has exploded onto the market, becoming a popular choice for wedding rings and bands. At Michael Arthur, we recognise this growing trend and are happy to offer you cutting-edge technology in jewellery design for your rose gold creation.
We can offer custom made intricate patterns, set with the finest diamonds, or a plain rose gold ring.
Is Rose Gold Better Than Gold?
The reddish or pink hue of rose gold sets it apart, making it an alternative choice to traditional yellow or white gold. Some consider rose gold to represent romance and devotion. But, is it any better than gold?
All gold is made from pure gold and other metals, forming an alloy. Gold in its purest form, at 24 carat, would be too soft to use for jewellery. All gold used for wedding rings, irrespective of colour, is alloy. The carat represents how much pure gold it contains, for example, 18 carat gold is 75 percent pure.
Rose gold is the result of mixing yellow gold with copper and other metals. The amount of copper it contains will dictate the amount of pink hue it has, more copper means more redness.
So answering the question, while rose gold is on trend, it’s the same as gold, carat for carat.
Is Rose Gold Real Gold?
Some feel that, due to the colour and hue, rose gold is not the genuine article. This is certainly not true. Used by Faberge to create his beautiful eggs for the Russian dynasties, it is very real.
The subtle colour will enhance and match many skin tones, making it a good choice for your wedding rings.
