This precious metal however has been famous and fashionable since the 19th Century, and most definitely so in Russia. In the majority of countries, rose gold rings are made through alloying yellow gold with small amounts of copper (the more copper, the bolder red hue), Russia on the other hand traditionally use the three major shades of gold, being rose, yellow, and white, to form one wedding ring that symbolizes unity, synergy, and harmony.

What is Rose Gold?
Mixing yellow gold, silver or zinc and copper to create a warm pink tint forms rose gold. Typically, there is a higher percentage of yellow gold to ensure that gold remains the purest element in the ring, so using a smaller percentage of copper means you have a lighter hue of pink or red due to dilution. That being said, the tone can vary and many prefer to have a predominantly red tincture, which means higher percentages of copper are added on demand.
9 carat rose gold generally has 37.5% of the total weight being pure gold, and tend to have a much pinker hue than 18 carat rose gold. The percentage of these alloys also mean that rose gold is much more hardwearing, another key feature of gold alongside its resistant nature and lustrous shine.
Care for your Rose Gold
It’s easier than ever to take excellent care of your rose gold jewellery. To ensure your ring stays hygienic and dirt-free, just simply wash it in warm water. This will get rid of debris and dirt that can appear on or under the surface of your ring. Then use a soft cotton cloth to dry it completely, and keep it in your Orla James jewellery box when you aren’t wearing it.
We at Orla James offer a fantastic lifetime promise on our rings, which includes professional polish and cleaning services on all Orla James rings! We also have engraving and resizing services available whenever you wish to use them.
