While many of us already know that rose gold is not pure gold and instead it is an alloy made up of both gold and copper of varying percentage based on the depth of the color pink desired, celebrities have made no secret of their love of this novel gold color. If celebrities want to show off their level of wealth through their jewelry, rose gold may not be the best way to achieve this desired end as it still does run more inexpensively than solid gold. However, celebrities have also been touting white gold for years and that, too, in most cases is an alloy of gold and silver. So, who on the red carpet (or elsewhere) is showing off their love of this new pink-hued gold?
Witherspoon was recently seen walking the red carpet at a How Do You Know photo call wearing over $13,000 in just a rose gold necklace alone. Irene Neuwirth, the necklace designer, combined onyx and rose gold in this beautiful long circular necklace available for $13,180 at Landsberg Jewelers. Witherspoon’s choice to wear a black and rose gold necklace over a black dress might be seen as a bad choice by some because the onyx gold in the necklace will blend into the dress behind it. However, it does allow the beautiful rose gold to shine center stage.
When Leann Rimes became engaged to her former-lover-turned-fiancé Eddie Cibrian, the tabloids were abuzz with shock and awe at the couple’s audacity. If Cibrian proposing to Rimes just shy of three months after his divorce to former wife Brandi Glanville wasn’t a statement enough, her $85,000 engagement ring certainly was. Cibrian spared no expense for Rimes’ platinum band showcasing a 5 carat oval diamond encased in a rose gold fleur-de-lis.
So, despite the fact that some jewelry aficionados might snub their nose at any gold other than pure gold, celebrities are displaying their love for this novel pink-hued gold and pairing it with some interesting fashion choices. And, what’s more is that it is becoming clear that rose gold is capable of being paired with a myriad of wardrobe color choices.
