Rose Gold: The Metal of Love & Gratitude
Our rose gold vermeil jewelry continues to be popular this season. Many of our customers ask us, “what is rose gold made of and when did it become popular?” Such a great question, we thought we would share.
The blogger, Laura Preshong, provided a great description of when rose gold came to be – “rose gold was first used in early 19th century Russia by the famed jeweler Carl Faberge in his infamous Faberge Eggs, as was known as Russian Gold. Rose gold later gained popularity in the United Stated during the lavish and feminine 1920’s and was worn in engagement rings and fine jewelry. Cartier was instrumental in the rise in popularity creating luscious rose gold, fine jewelry with precious gemstones and diamonds.”
Over the last few decades, the popularity of rose gold has come and gone depending on the current trends. Today rose gold has once again taken its rightful place in the style sections of your favorite magazines, on the hands of trend setters, and future brides.
Rose gold is a blend, or an alloy of pure 24 karat yellow gold, copper, and silver. It has a subtle, romantic color of gold that translates into love, romance, and elegance.
We love creating designs in rose gold vermeil as it beautifully pairs with crystals and gemstones.
These are a few of our favorite rose gold vermeil pieces:
These pieces exude love and beauty. What a great treat for yourself or a beautiful gift to a loved one to show your gratitude for them!
In addition to gifting jewelry, there are many ways to show others love and gratitude. Research shows, the more we can share our gratitude, the better we feel ourselves.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to practice gratitude:
- Share a quote with a family member, friend, on social media, or on a mirror to spread positivity and love
- Leave heartfelt handwritten notes around the house or on social media to your loved ones
- Start a gratitude journal by simply writing down what you're grateful for. It’s a very powerful grounding tool and a great way to keep your thoughts and feelings organized.
