The Fascinating History behind Rose gold
Rose gold is a relatively new colour among existing precious metals, having appeared as recently as the 19th century in Imperial Russia thereby resulting in rose gold commonly being thought of as Russian Gold.
Rose gold is a mixture of alloys which is created by the blending of metal yellow gold with a copper alloy. Depending on the ratio of yellow gold to copper alloy, rose gold will look anywhere from a light shade of pink to a darker tone of red.
This blush hued gold was invented by Karl Gustavovich Fabergé, who is credited with being a great goldsmith and court jeweler in Russia’s Imperial History. His chief accomplishment were his famous Imperial Easter eggs – masterpieces crafted for the Russian imperial family, modernly known as Fabergé eggs.
Cartier iconic designs in Rose gold
The 1920s decade is regarded as an era of change which fueled a drive for exclusivity, glamour and innovation in art, fashion and style.
To follow suit, the French jewellery maker Cartier started incorporating the then unconventional metal into its luxurious and iconic designs, featuring and promoting rose gold pieces across the globe.
Cartier’s legendary “Trinity ring” was released in 1924, and it reflected this new movement in the world of fashion.
Cartier reintroduced the rose gold once more into its creation, the Love Bangle Bracelet, an iconic design which originated in 1969 and which earned the status of being the most popular and timeless Cartier creation even until today.
Rose gold is still popular and rising as a trend today
From the viewpoint of popular culture, rose gold grew to become the favourite precious metal of choice in September 2015 after Apple released the iPhone 6S in rose gold, a color popularly known as “Millenial Pink”. The popularity of this hue was unexpectedly huge, causing the Pantone Color Institute to declare that particular shade of pale pink as its 2016 “Color of the year” and thereafter naming it “Rose Quartz”.
Rose shade or nude pink has been a bestseller in the fashion world ever since then and has continued growing in popularity, especially among celebrities and fashion and jewellery designers. It has therefore undoubtedly exerted influence on and impacted mainstream consumer choices.
