If you are in the market for an engagement ring, you may be overwhelmed at all of the options that are available to you. You may be thinking "does my partner like a center diamond? Or a princess cut diamond? Does my partner even like diamonds? Or maybe they want a lab grown diamond instead? What is on their wish list? Do I have to consider a wedding band too? Rose gold or white gold?" All of these questions are normal and part of the process. If you know your partner will like an elegant ring that is a timeless choice with a modern twist, you may want to consider a rose gold engagement ring. Becoming increasingly more popular, rose gold engagement rings are starting to make a name for themselves as they are unique while also having that thoughtful romantic touch.
What Exactly is a Rose Gold Engagement Ring?
You may be wondering what exactly rose gold engagement rings are, as they look like neither gold or silver. Very similarly to yellow gold, rose gold contains a mixture of various metals, however a greater amount of copper is added to the mixture in order to produce the rose gold rings that we love today. Many couples who are looking for engagement rings but want a unique appearance will often opt for a rose gold engagement ring, as it has the same durability as other platinum gold or silver rings but with more personality.
It should be noted that because rose gold engagement rings are made up of various types of metals, extra attention must be paid when cleaning your rose gold metal engagement ring. Vinegar or soap and water are great options to consider when looking to clean your rose gold ring, while regular polishing with a polishing cloth every few months is recommended in order to keep your rose gold ring always shining. If maintained properly, your rose gold rings will last a lifetime.
What Metals Can be Paired with a Rose Gold Engagement Ring?
If you are interested in rose gold engagement rings or custom creating your own rose gold rings, you may be interested in mixing and matching metals from a metal shop in order to create your perfect choice of a rose gold engagement ring. If this is the case, you may be wondering which metals go best with rose gold.
Simply speaking, rose gold goes great with every type of metal. This being said, it also depends on the type of vibe and style of engagement ring you are looking for. For example, rose gold and platinum gold are a great pair and look great when worn together. Both platinum gold and rose gold bring out the bright undertones in both, making the ring bright, eye catching and a statement piece. On the contrary, rose gold engagement rings which include white gold bring out the cool undertone of each other, which is a perfect choice if you are looking for an understated yet gorgeous ring. Because rose gold metal is comprised of various types of metals from a metal shop, it will pick up notes and tones from whatevermetal it is paired with, making it the perfect metal for your engagement ring if you are looking to incorporate other metals into it.
