Trendy Meets Timeless In These Simple Rose Gold Engagement Rings
If your style tends toward minimalism, but you like to stay up-to-the-moment, a simple rose gold engagement ring might be a perfect fit. Rose gold is a currently trending metal choice among brides-to-be who love its warm, romantic glow and stylistic freshness — it’s a departure from traditional white and yellow gold looks.
What makes a setting a simple engagement ring? That depends on the person you’re shopping for. But we think of these settings as the classics: Solitaires, some pave settings with minimal accent stones or split shanks, and even some halo rings that incorporate a plain shank.
Here are some things to consider when shopping for a rose gold engagement ring:
- Do you want 14k or 18k rose gold? Your choice should depend on your tonal preference. 14k rose gold will appear much pinker than 18k. Because 14k uses more copper alloy, it’s stronger — and rosier. By contrast, 18k rose gold actually isn’t all that pink; it’s more of a subtle champagne color.
- Rose gold can impart some body color to your diamond, although not nearly as much as yellow gold. Be mindful of this when you’re selecting your diamond’s color grade.
- Rose gold is surging in popularity, but this metal choice has gone in and out of favor over the years. It’s a good idea to ensure that she truly loves rose gold for its look, because the trend might pass.
