A rose gold necklace is a golden strand of jewelry that sits around the neck tightly or loosely. The necklace itself can be smooth and solid, or take on a chain link form. Some necklaces clip closed, while others are so long they can be slipped on and off and even layered.
Rose gold necklaces can be worn as is or with a pendant. Popular rose gold pendants today include circle designs, horizontal bars, stars, initial letters, and even horoscope coin style designs.
Rose gold necklaces are unique, which makes them coveted and highly sought after. A rose gold metal is formed by mixing other metals together. Yellow gold, copper, and silver form an alloy which result in a rosey gold glow. Looking almost pink in the light, it’s easy to see why women and girls love wearing this feminine and sweet metal around their neck and in other accessory forms.
Rose gold necklaces were created by a Russian artisan jewelry. In the late 1800’s, Carl Faberge started experimenting and incorporating these blends in his designs. He affectionately named the alloy blend Russian gold. After its popularity exploded and other jewelers and designs started adding it into their lines, it became called Rose gold because of its light and rosy appearance.
It went on hiatus for awhile, but skyrocketed again in popularity after the World Wars and well into the 50’s, where every house wife was wearing it!
The late 1990’s and early 2000’s was also a successful time for the blush inspired metal, showing up in watches and wedding ring designs.
