If you’re looking for an engagement ring that really makes a statement, then consider the rose gold engagement rings Melbourne is famous for. Melburnians are renowned for their creativity and passion, and is it any wonder, with such a high number of Greeks and Italians living there?
Rose gold rings are a favourite choice. They’re described as one of the most romantic styles you could wear. Cartier recognised the beauty of rose gold almost 100 years ago when they released their gorgeous Trinity range. Rose gold sets off a ring with exquisite beauty. Melbourne’s Italian master jewellers are experts at hand crafting stunning rose gold engagement rings for romantics right across Victoria and beyond.
The Quality of Rose Gold Engagement Rings Melbourne Couples Swear By
Rose gold is truly unique. It’s a tender composition of gold, copper, and either silver or zinc. The more copper in the compound, the redder it becomes. The rose gold colour is a beautiful compromise, sitting snugly between the pink gold and red gold colours.
One of the big selling points besides it’s unique appearance, is its durability. As you will know, gold is a soft metal, but by masterfully including a small percentage of copper into the compound, it increases its durability. This means it doesn’t require an extra layer of plating, unlike some other types of gold rings. What are some of the other benefits of rose gold?
