It feels like it’s come out of nowhere, but now we cannot live without it. We’re talking about rose gold – that gorgeously warm-toned metal that is ideal for those who think of yellow gold as too classic and white gold as too contemporary. We’ve rounded up the very best rose gold engagement rings from jewellers, celebrities and lucky brides-to-be to inspire you.
If you love the idea of a rose gold engagement ring, why not browse our list of alternative engagement rings – there are a few in there that will catch your eye too.
Amethyst and White Sapphire Ring
This gorgeous engagement ring from Goldsmiths packs a lot of impact but has an incredibly reasonable price. The 9ct rose gold ring has an amethyst centre stone (which is the birthstone for February babies!) and a white sapphire halo – and it costs just £300!
Custom Engagement Ring
Lucky bride-to-be Laura received a rose gold engagement ring. “I am very lucky, he did really well. I knew I wanted a rose gold ring but found it quite hard to find any to point to apart from Lauren Conrad’s sparkler!”
PR Laura received a custom made rose gold ring made by jeweller David Law. Her fiancé proposed at home when she got in from work – Michael Jackson was playing in the background and they enjoyed mac’n’cheese to celebrate, before heading off on an ‘engagemoon’ to New York. Living the dream.
Cinnamon Diamond Ring
If you want something different when it comes to your engagement ring, why not consider this vintage rose gold ring from Alexis Dove, which has an unusual and beautifully smoky cinnamon diamond.
Leighton Meester’s Engagement Ring
We’re obsessed with Gossip Girl here in the hitched editorial team – and when both Blake Lively and Leighton Meester received rose gold rings we knew Blair and Serena would approve. Leighton isn’t often spotted wearing her wedding and engagement rings, but you can see her rose gold beauty in this Instagram snap she shared.
Blake Lively’s Engagement Ring
Blake is a little more indulgent of us and shared this TBT snap which includes her unmissable rock from Ryan Reynolds. Really – are you actually allowed to have a husband that hot and a ring that nice? Something doesn’t seem fair here.
Welsh Gold Engagement Ring
If you or your partner is from Wales or you have a special connection to the place, why not consider a Clogau ring, made from rare gold found in the Welsh mountains? This solitaire is anything but simple, and we love the diamond band it has been paired with.
Round Rosette Grand Halo
This Anna Sheffield beautiful features a round diamond surrounded with a halo of diamonds.
Round Diamond Ring
Contemporary brides will love this round diamond ring from Cred Jewellery – it’s sleek and stylish and will work with a plain wedding band or one that is diamond studded for even more sparkle. It’s also Fair Trade so you can feel good about your choice.
The Sparkliest Diamond
Are you all about the sparkle? It’s totally fine, we are too. This diamond from Mastercut Diamond has an amazing 89 facets, meaning it will totally dazzle you and anyone keen to get a look at your rock.
Trilogy of Diamonds
Arctic Circle create engagement rings made from Fair Trade gold and fully traceable Canadian diamonds. An excellent choice if Canada is a special place to you, and you’ll be in good company – hitched editor Caroline has a Canadian diamond engagement ring and you can read her engagement story in our 100 proposal stories feature.
Morganite and Diamond Cluster
Lots of rose gold engagement rings come with morganite as a centre stone as the soft pink colour perfectly matches the rosy metal. This cluster ring is just £287 from QVCuk but it looks way more expensive and incredibly sparkly.
Hayden Panettiere’s Engagement Ring
The diminutive actress sports a six carat, emerald cut diamond on a rose gold band with split shoulders, which her boxer fiancé Wladimir Klitchsko designed. No big deal. Excuse her scary Halloween contact lenses, but we love this picture she shared on Twitter.

Aussie actress Teresa Palmer gave us goals we didn’t even know we needed when she shared this snap of her beautiful ring, which features a rose quartz centre stone, on Instagram.
Whitney Port’s Engagement Ring
We’ve already shared our love of Gossip Girl with you – so it should come as no surprise that we were also obsessed with The Hills. The fact style guru Whitney Port has a rose gold engagement ring just reinforces how lust-worthy they are. Browse her Instagram feed for lots of pictures of her sparkler – she even put copper toned items on her wedding gift list because that is how coordinated she is.
Bea Sapphire Engagement Ring
Anna Sheffield creates beautiful engagement rings, many of which come in rose gold. We actually believe in love at first sight having seen the ‘Bea’ ring, which is a gorgeous choice if you’re looking for a sapphire engagement ring.
Lauren Conrad’s Engagement Ring
Another star from The Hills with a stunning rose gold ring. Lauren Conrad’s striking solitaire is simple but seriously effective – and her diamond studded wedding ring adds even more sparkle.
Marquise Rosette Ring
The shape of this engagement ring is really unusual, and has a definite vintage feel. It’s also made using morganite which looks gorgeous against the rose gold metal. Anna Sheffield does it again!
