ROSE GOLD metal
Fine Gold Mixed With Copper
Rose gold, also known as red or pink gold, is an alloy that consists of pure gold and copper.
Fourteen karat rose gold contains 14 parts fine gold and 10 parts copper and silver. It is the rich red copper combined with fine gold that creates a warm rosy tone.
Eighteen karat rose gold consists of 18 parts (75%) pure gold, alloyed with copper and a smaller quantity of silver. Twenty karat rose gold consists of 20 parts (83%) pure gold, while the rest is mostly copper.
Throughout ancient history, rose gold was used decoratively. Rose gold was popular in 19th century Russia, and was known at the time as Russian gold. It became popular in the United States during the 1920s when Cartier introduced the Trinity, a ring made of three interlocking yellow, rose and white gold bands. It has become more trendy in the 2000s.
