Fashionable rose gold is the ultimate colour for a wedding. Here’s why you’ll fall in love with this elegant metallic tone.
Since Apple introduced the Rose Gold iPhone, the world went a little gaga over this exotic colour. And weddings have been no exception. Rose gold is adorning the linens, accessories, dresses, shoes, jewellery and even the food and drinks at many a bride’s big day. We just love this blushing metallic tone in sequins and bling, and we think it’s perfect for both classic and contemporary weddings.
It’s glamorous and dramatic without being over-the-top. It’s all at once elegant and playful. It bedazzles and sparkles so it’s no wonder celebrities started choosing rose gold engagement rings to adorn their elegant fingers. Blake Lively, Katie Holmes, Hayden Panettiere and Alison Brie are some of the superstars who have added fuel to the rose gold craze.
18-carat rose gold is comprised of 4% silver, 75% gold and 21% copper. It was popular during 20th Century Imperial Russia and was used in one of Carl Faberge’s most costly but beautiful Moscow Kremlin Eggs.
The colour evokes romantic feelings associated with a rose. It speaks of a deep, everlasting love that is timeless and perfect. People feel the same attachment to rose gold as they do towards classic gold, which evokes a sense of royalty, sophistication, and opulence. Only, rose gold is neither gaudy nor brassy. It’s a calming colour. It speaks to people of class and luxury.
