Rose gold — it’s been around for centuries. Rose gold has had its ups and downs in terms of popularity in the past but it is definitely seen in a “rosy” light in more recent years.
Rose gold, sometimes called “pink or red” gold, is given its reddish tint through the modern alloying process, which combines pure gold with copper, which also increases durability and wearability. This warm, blush-hued version of the precious metal conveys luxury and spending power. I love the nickname I came across that called rose gold for men who finally have embraced this softer color, “bros gold.”
