Rose Gold Bracelets

In recent years, rose gold has become the hottest trend in jewelry and any number of exquisite pieces are fashioned in various shades of rose. Also, rose gold is often blended with other colors and other shades of rose, as it lends itself to so many variations in rose tones, each more lovely than the last. Everything from rose gold earrings to rose gold ankle bracelets are currently fashionable, and prices range from quite affordable to extremely expensive designer prices.

How to Judge the Quality of a Rose Gold Bracelet
When buying a rose gold bracelet, the first thing that should be considered is the quality/purity of gold, which is measured in karats per mass. It isn’t necessary to know the exact formula used to make this measurement, but that 24k gold is considered to be ‘pure’ and is too soft to actually be of use in jewelry. In order to make gold more durable, a variety of alloys are added to the gold which gives it its characteristic colors. The finest jewelry is most commonly made with 22k or 18k gold.

How Rose Gold Comes by Its Color

Actually, the metal mixed with gold is what gives gold its color and in this case that metal is copper. It may often be referred to as pink gold or red gold, but that is because lesser or greater amounts of copper are added to derive that color. This means that the redder the gold is, the less pure it is and the more copper is added. As gold leans toward pink, less copper is used, but the lighter the pink, other white metals may be added such as silver. In the end, there is no such thing as pure rose gold; however, the finest rose gold is usually 75% gold and 21% copper, and 4% silver, which equates to 18k rose gold.

Tri Colored Rose Gold Bracelet
One of the loveliest of all pieces of jewelry is a tri colored rose gold bracelet. Whether in various shades of rose or when blended with white and yellow gold, a tri colored rose gold bracelet holds a special allure. Often these bracelets are simple ropes that have one strand each of three colors. Sometimes delicate flowers dangle from a chain of gold and the tiny blossoms are platinum, white gold or silver with the stigma in the center exquisitely done in rose gold. Many fine jewelers even have a selection of tri colored rose gold bangles that look to be engraved with delicate etches of rose gold throughout.

The Ultimate Rose Gold Bracelet
For the ultimate in rose gold bracelets, there is no finer piece than a rose gold tennis bracelet. With the tennis bracelet’s characteristic diamonds throughout, the rose gold adds that lovely feminine touch. These bracelets make the perfect gifts for Christmas, Mother’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries, or simply to say “I love you” any time of the year. Diamonds are forever and rose is the color of love. A rose gold tennis bracelet tells her “I love you now, and I will love you forever.” Nothing could say it better or with more eloquence!

Whether buying a gift for someone special or choosing a piece for yourself, nothing is more alluring than a rose gold bracelet. Rose is an exquisite color that lends itself well to tri colored gold settings, and is the perfect color to use with diamonds. Don’t be misled by the fact that it is copper which gives gold that charming rose hue because all gold is an alloy with some other metal. What sets rose gold apart is simply the fact that it is rose, soft, lovely and feminine.
