WYW: Rose Gold Jewelry?

Rose gold has always kind of held a stigma for me. Kind of like when you’re 18 and trying to be appear super classy, so you tell everyone your favorite wine is a rosé and then, 3 years later, you realized that rosé is basically tinted white grape juice, and the cooler thing to say would have been “pinot gris.” Rose gold was like the Lisa Frank of precious metals.

These days, I could care less about drinking the only wine with a heavy tween following, or any age-appropriation for rose-gold – it’s unusual, pretty, and has sufficiently piqued my interest. You know, “rose gold” kind of got the short end of the stick. I bet if it were still called Russian Gold, it would have a better following, don’t you think? But really, all rose gold is: copper + gold alloy (usually a 25/75 mix). That’s it! It’s been called a million different names.

I was peeking through Fantasy Jewelry Box, and came across a surprising number of rose-tinted pieces:

If I really wanted to get on this trendy train, I would couple a rose gold band with Ruby rings by Gems.tv. I know, sounds gauche, right? It’s not, I swear! But then again, I have a huge soft spot for monochromatic dressing… It would fit in perfectly! Then, on days when I want to tone it down and be a little more classic, I’m hoping that I just randomly find a velvet pouch full of loose diamonds from Durrants London Jewellers. Then I can set one in some rose gold and that can just be  my “everyday ring.” Yeah. Seems likely, right?

Right.

Would you wear rose gold jewelry?

    I LOVE rose gold. I guess I bypassed drinking for other people, either as a teen or a young adult, and I sure as hell never wore jewelry unless I liked the look of it. =p I have a few pieces of Black Hills Gold with rose accents (a ring and a necklace), and a pair of all rose gold dangles. Wish I could afford more pieces since I’ve started coming back to gold after being a silver wearer almost exclusively. Trust me to fall in love when it’s at an all-time high price per ounce.

  • i love rose gold and always get many many compliments on my rose gold watch :) been really into the look lately

    I’ve always loved rose gold ever since I came across it in HK as a teen. Now I’m always on the lookout for affordable rose gold pieces.
