When someone talks about gold, you immediately think of a lustrous yellow metal. But do you know that this gold is available in pink colour? Oh yes, crown gold or rose gold as it is commonly known, is a metal which is grabbing attention across the globe. So let’s find out a little more about this metal.
How is Rose Gold made?
In order to give India’s favourite metal a pink tinge, jewelers add a small amount of copper to gold. The rose gold which is then formed has all the properties of gold and can be used to make all kinds of jewellery. Currently, rose gold watches are really popular with fashionistas across the globe.
Rose gold is available in up to 22 carats. It came to existence in the early 19th century in Russia and Russian marriages are incomplete without wedding bands created out of yellow, white and rose gold. When these three metals come together, they symbolize unity and togetherness and are considered auspicious for the newly married couple.
How to choose rose gold?
Now choosing rose gold can be tricky. A lot of jewelers add a lot of copper to the jewelry and pass it off as rose gold to unsuspecting people. So always go to a trusted jeweler while buying rose gold jewelry. Also, buy jewellery which has a hall mark certifying its authenticity and quality. Always insist for a receipt and a certificate, if possible, which declares the amount of gold and copper present in your jewellery.
Rose Gold: A Fashion Statement
Fashionistas love anything that is unique and fortunately rose gold falls under this category. Since it does not have much demand, rose gold is made to order which gives it an aura of exclusivity.
Beauty of Rose Gold
Rose gold also looks very elegant and subtle as compared to flashy diamonds and blingy gold. So if you are going for a minimalist look, then rose gold is perfect for you.
Another secret; rose gold jewellery is cheaper than gold jewellery. How is that possible? Well, copper comes very cheap and secondly the price of rose gold jewellery is determined by the price of the gold present in that jewellery, which is definitely quite less.
