Beautiful rose gold diamond rings

custom made to your design

Rose gold is experiencing a renaissance, rose gold engagement rings and blush is where it’s at for 2017 designed engagement rings.  The current trend is towards a full rose gold ring, and it looks wonderful paired with diamonds.

Rose gold can also be used as a highlight, especially with pink diamonds to help enhance their colour. Rose gold has a beautiful pink blush derived from the addition of copper to gold, and the depth of colour depends on the ratio of copper to gold; more copper equals a deeper rose hue.

What is rose gold?

Rose gold is a mix of gold and copper, and it complements any complexion. It’s more durable than yellow or white gold, and even better it’s surprisingly affordable. At Diamondport, we have a preference towards 18k rose gold. It has a lower proportion of copper, a lighter pink colour and relatively hard wearing nature. 14k rose gold has relatively more copper and therefore is a deeper red shade.  It’s important to be aware that rose gold is not hypoallergenic. The copper within the alloy can cause allergies, so be sure to check with your girlfriend first.

Rose gold is symbolic

The pinkish hue of rose gold is often associated with warmth and romance making it an excellent choice for an engagement ring. Rose gold has an element of rarity and exclusivity given the limited range on offer in jewellery stores compared to yellow and white gold. It’s symbolic to the stylish and gives the wearer a point of difference with their jewellery.

What’s in trend? Rose gold is back in vogue

The current trend is towards a full rose gold ring, and it looks wonderful paired with diamonds.

We often use rose gold to highlight pink diamonds. A popular application is a halo around a white diamond. The halo of pink diamonds is set in rose gold which makes the pink diamonds look a lot pinker. Because pink diamonds are so expensive we often use a lower colour, yet pink gold (rose gold) will enhance the pink diamonds’ colour.

Two-tone rose gold rings are also an excellent choice; a rose band with white diamonds set in platinum as the white metal accentuates the size of the stone.

The rose gold princess cut diamond ring: an emerging trend

Princess cut diamonds have always been very stylish, recently, we’ve created some beautiful princess cut diamond solitaire engagement rings set in rose gold, with diamonds in the shoulder.

A romantic twist on this look is to surround the princess cut diamond centre stone with a diamond halo. The diamond halo and rose gold setting lend a vintage glamour.  These versatile rings have equal appeal as an engagement ring or lavish dress ring.

Who suits rose gold? Is it just for girls with strawberry blonde hair?

Not at all! Traditional thinking might be that rose gold suits fair complexions, whereas white gold flatters darker complexions. Sure, we agree with that, but we feel that you should wear the jewellery you love best and many girls with even the slightest tone of pink in their skin wear rose gold beautifully.

Rose gold is shaking off a reputation for being old-fashioned or ‘vintage’, and is being embraced by artistic and creative clients who are looking for a quirky design, something a little different.  That said, if you’re keen on an artistic inspired ring then rose gold is perfect. I’ve had clients who want to design a ring that’s reminiscent of a family heirloom or their grandmother’s engagement ring, yet in a contemporary setting.

Creating the Perfect Sapphire Ring

Firstly, you can choose the perfect sapphire to suit your design, taste and budget. Sapphires vary in colour from a light sky blue to a deep indigo. The cut affects the scintillation, and they can have few or many inclusions or imperfections. Just like choosing a centrepiece diamond, care should be taken when selecting a sapphire as the colour and quality can vary enormously.

Secondly, sapphire engagement rings are an exquisite niche, and there’ll always be fewer ready-made sapphire options in the larger jewellery stores. Buying a ready-made ring could ultimately mean compromising on quality, sapphire colour, metal, and other design elements. Do yourself a favour and create a truly magnificent custom-made ring, designed and inspired by you.
Choosing a sapphire engagement ring is a beautiful decision; you’re marrying a creative girl who’s comfortable being a little different. Do her creativity justice – take the time to learn more about sapphires, choose the perfect stone and design a truly beautiful ring, so that you can give your fiancée exactly the ring she would like.
