Is Rose Gold really Gold? Yes! Gold in its natural state is yellow and also so soft it’s malleable. In order to create gold jewelry, gold needs to be alloyed-mixed with other metals- for strength. When you alloy gold, you can alter the percentages of alloys used to change its color.

Rose Gold is derived from alloying gold with a particular combination of copper and silver. The copper is what gives rose gold its delicate pink color. The silver helps to tone down the redness of the copper, achieving a subtler pink shade.

Rose gold became popular in Russia at the beginning of the 19th century, and is sometimes referred to as Russian gold. Today, many people consider it to be the most romantic precious metal because of its pink luster, and it tends to complement all skin tones.
