Rose Gold Jewelry Pieces You’ll Never Want To Take Off

Rose gold jewelry is trending in 2021 – and we can confidently say that this is a trend that won’t pass. But which rose gold pieces are the most popular right now, and how should you wear them? Read on for the hottest pieces in this warm-toned metal.

Rose Gold Jewelry Pieces You’ll Never Want To Take Off

If you like rose gold, you love it. Rose gold jewelry has emerged as a top contender – for the past few years, these pieces have steadily increased in popularity. And of course they have! Rose gold is a gorgeous jewelry metal with legions of die-hard fans.

What’s Rose Gold?

Rose gold is a yellow gold/copper alloy. The gold gives it a malleability and sheen that’s perfect for jewelry, and the copper gives it its distinctive pink hue. Originally used in the production of Faberge eggs in the 19th century, nowadays rose gold is beloved for both its durability and romantic pink hue. 

Why is Rose Gold Trending?

Rose gold has a light pinkish hue that’s singular in fine jewelry. Its unique color imbues each rose gold jewelry piece with a feminine, vintage feel that’s uncommonly delightful. Plus, this pinkish gold is also one of the strongest! It’s more durable than both white gold and yellow gold. In fact, it’s only second in hardness to platinum! That durability is thanks to its copper content, which incidentally also makes rose gold one of the more affordable jewelry metals. Copper isn’t as expensive as gold, and the gold + copper combo makes rose gold a relatively low-maintenance metal. Rose gold jewelry is the perfect choice for anyone who likes their jewelry to keep a lasting shine with minimal effort. Not only is rose gold a metal that doesn’t require re-plating – it also doesn’t tarnish! 

The only disclaimer we have is that rose gold is not hypoallergenic. Anyone with copper allergies should avoid rose gold.

Rose gold jewelry is both glamorous and practical, making it a favorite of celebs and everyday workers alike. Celebrities like Blake Lively and Alison Brie have fanned the flames of this trend with their gorgeous rose gold engagement rings. So if you want a metal that evokes classic Hollywood – give rose gold jewelry a serious consideration.

What Does Rose Gold Go With?

Don’t be shy to pair rose gold with any gemstone that you particularly enjoy. But there are a few gems that complement rose gold particularly well. 

  • Warm-toned gems: The pink undertones of gemstones like pink sapphire, morganite, red rubies, and purple amethyst complement the pinkish color of rose gold particularly well.
  • Green gems: Green is on the opposite side of the color wheel from pink, and so green gemstones like emerald or peridot look especially striking when set in rose gold jewelry. It’s not a particularly intuitive combination, but trust us – it’s a successful one!
  • Clear & white gems: Neutral-colored gems like diamonds, white sapphires, and pearls enhance the features of any jewelry metal they’re set in. And when set in rose gold jewelry, they evoke whimsy, femininity, and classic romance.

Pearl + Rose Gold Jewelry

Let’s start off with one of our favorite jewelry pairings: rose gold and pearls. Pearls are one of the earliest-worn gemstones; even in antiquity, they were prized for their shine. In ancient Greece, they were said to be the joyous tears of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. And the Romans prized pearls more than diamonds! The Roman elite’s obsession with pearls spurred the development of a thriving pearl trade that spanned Europe and the Middle East. From the Persian Gulf to the Isle of Britain, a steady stream of pearls made its way to Rome. 

And over two thousand years later, pearls are still the gemstone of choice for modern-day royalty!
