For years, platinum rocked the engagement ring world with favorites like silver, yellow and white gold as popular contenders. But lately, it’s all about rose gold. This pretty pink metal is having a shining moment in engagement rings and wedding bands (even for the groom). Here’s what you need to know…

What is rose gold?
It’s a combo of gold and copper—the more copper, the rosier the hue.

Who created it?
Jeweler to the czars, Carl Fabergé (yes, the egg guy), was one of the first to use this gorge metal in the 19th century. Fun fact: the creation went by “Russian Gold” at the time.

The hue gives off soft and sweet vibes. Is it durable?
Totally. Gold is a tough metal by itself and the added copper makes the duo the strongest of all golds.

What kind of band do you wear with a rose gold engagement ring?
Brides can’t get enough of this metal. They’re often going with a matching wedding band…and the same for the groom. However, we think a rose gold engagement ring can really pop when paired with a white gold band.

Let’s talk cost. How affordable is rose gold?
In some instances, rose gold can be the more reasonable choice for a ring. The copper used to create the pinky hue costs less than other metals. We’re sure you can find one you love—check out some of our faves below!
