Rose gold first became fashionable at the beginning of the 19th century. In recent years, this popularity has exploded.
The rose gold tone was first created in 19th century Russia when Carl Fabergé opted to blend yellow gold with copper to create the blush-toned alloy. This's why it was originally referred to as “Russian gold.”
Its popularity all over the world started in the 1920s when Cartier introduced its famous trinity band featuring white, yellow, and rose gold tones.
Rose gold has been popular ever since and its popularity is not dwindling any time soon. In fact, the color's influence has spread to everything from fashion to iPhone cases to makeup to rosé wine.
The rose gold trend started with watches and jewelry as a fresh alternative to traditional yellow gold and silver, but now the hue has taken over almost every style category, from housewares to clothing.
Rose gold is simply beautiful. Any piece is pretty in the rosy shade whether it’s a watch, bracelet or jacket. It brings warmth to an item.
Rose gold is universally flattering and looks great on just about anyone. It has a wonderful glow that it throws onto the skin adding radiance to any skin tone. Rose gold is fantastic for people with warm skin tones as well as for those with cooler skin tones. The rose color stands out beautifully against pale skin, and even on darker skin tones. It is the perfect gold tone for a seasonally changing skin tone.
It is versatile. It accentuates any look, style or outfit fabulously adding a pretty feminine touch. However, it works best with neutral and pastel color combinations. Rose gold works for day, parties, weddings and everything else.
Since pure gold is too soft and malleable for practical use, it is normally combined with other metals to make it stronger and harder.
Rose gold or pink gold is a gold and copper alloy with a rosy color tone that ranges from red, pink, blush to rosy depending on the amount of copper in the alloy. The higher the copper content, the more rosier the tone. The copper strengthens the alloy making it more durable and scratch and dent resistant.
The most common proportion is 50 per cent gold and 50 per cent copper, which has a reddish hue. Some alloys contain up to 15 per cent Zinc while others also have silver.
The higher the gold content, the more expensive it is. The gold content and the purity of a gold alloy is indicated in karats. The most expensive is 22 karat, which is 75% gold and 25% copper. 18kt rose gold is 75 per cent gold, 21 per cent copper and 4 per cent silver. The most affordable is 10Kt rose gold.
Even more affordable rose golden watches are rose gold plated. A base metal such as stainless steel or brass is covered with a thin layer of rose gold to give it the beautiful rosy tone.
If you are buying a solid rose gold watch, always verify that it has been tested and stamped with a hallmark to clarify the purity and authenticate the gold content.
Rose gold is a very versatile tone that complements and enhances most of the colors of other jewelry and looks good on most skin tones. It is very easy to match with other jewelry and fashion accessories.
It will look stunning with darker tones, pastels and neutrals. However, it does not look good with competing tones that diminish its glow.
Pair with gemstone jewelry- rose gold will accentuate the look of diamonds and other precious stones including colored gemstones such as turquoise and pink sapphires. Wear a rose gold watch with turquise bangles, rings or earrings.
Rose gold with copper- these two metals complement and enhance each other. Style your rose tone watch with copper jewelry and accessories.
Wear it as part of a casual look to look traditional and modern, fashionable and classy at the same time.
Wear with dark colored clothing eg black and navy as this makes the rose watch stand out to enhance your look.
Wear your rose gold watch with nails painted a metallic pink, neutral colors, nude or just natural. The watch stands out even more this way.
Don't wear with completing colors eg very brilliant silver and yellow gold- go for toned versions of these to ensure the rose gold wrist watch stands out.
Rose gold watches for women deserve a place in every woman's accessory and jewelry collection. Even if it is the only watch you own, you will find it goes with a whole lot of other colors and jewelry tones.
Just like any other gold jewelry, rose gold watches can tarnish or fade if not taken care of properly.
Store all gold watches away from other jewelry and from cosmetics including perfumes and hairspray.
