Rosé Gold is the beautiful moment when your rose gold jewelry matches your glass of rosé. Oh yeah – when your wine matches your jewelry, you know you've got it going on! But let's break it down one more time and answer the question we're all still curious about, what is rose gold? Is it gold? Is it natural?? Is it real???
Plain and simple: rose gold is made by combining gold with a little bit of silver and a little more copper to give gold a pink tone. So yes, it's real and it can be found naturally in parts of the Middle East. If you're sensitive to copper, it might turn your skin a little green but, because there's less precious metals than solid gold pieces, rose gold won't break the bank!
We sat down with jewelry designer and rose gold advocate, Cynthia Rybakoff, to get her tips on when & how to wear it.
What's your favorite way to wear it? Ideally with a tan. Right now I'm wearing a lot of white, bone and black. Rose gold is my metal of choice with all my summer neutrals plus pastels like mint, peach and baby blue.
What can you pair it with? A light fish or summer pasta with veggies. It also goes well with all white metals like sterling silver, white gold or platinum.
Do you think it's a seasonal metal? Absolutely not! Come the colder months, it looks fabulous with heavier fabrics in colors like hunter, chocolate, cranberry and navy. Rose gold with black has become a year round classic look.
Any other thoughts about rose gold? Rose gold is not just a trend any more. It's become a necessary part of a well rounded jewelry wardrobe. The warm pink metal color looks great on all skin types, and can look more sophisticated than bright gold. A versatile pair of hoops or studs, a simple chain, a few rings and a substantial cuff in rose gold are 5 easy pieces to start your own rose gold collection!
