CZ Rose Gold Silver Pendant
Cubic Zirconia & Rose Gold Plated
“Rose gold is more rare, whether that’s because it’s made to order or there’s just less of it being made,” she says. The fashion world loves nothing more than exclusivity, making rose gold that much more desirable. But the price is still comparable to white or yellow gold because copper is inexpensive and jewelry made of rose gold is priced on the weight of the gold.
Rose gold, which is sometimes called “pink gold,” may seem more exotic than run-of-the-mill yellow, but the secret to its color is comparatively pedestrian: copper. All gold used in jewelry must be mixed with other metals in order to withstand wear because 24-karat gold (the kind that is 99% or more gold) is too soft to withstand wear on its own. The amount of copper used as an alloy is what gives rose gold its pink tinge.
