Offering a beautiful twist to traditional gold jewellery,
rose gold has risen in popularity in recent years, with many women swapping their classic gold and silver settings for this delicate pink option.
The Rise and Rise of Rose Gold
Having fallen out of fashion for a little while, rose gold returned to the style scene with a vengeance in 2014. Although its popularity was boosted by the endorsement of celebrities such as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Katie Holmes, the gorgeous, vintage vibes the precious metal gives off also has a lot to do with its resurgence this year.
Favoured by screen and fashion icon Audrey Hepburn, the alloy first came to popularity in Russia in the 19th century. Known as ‘Russian gold’ due to its distinctive colouring, it soon became well-loved elsewhere and was a staple throughout the Victorian era. However, its real big break came in the 1920s, when Cartier introduced its famous Trinity ring, which incorporated white, yellow and rose gold.
The Art Deco period wasn’t particularly kind to the subtle charms of rose gold, but it became popular again during the Second World War. It is now enjoying a resurgence due, in part, to its retro charm. Other notable assets of rose gold are its suitability to a range of skin tones and its delicate, feminine colouring.
