It feels like it came 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.
Sometimes referred to as pink gold, it is a mixture of yellow gold, copper and silver, with the amount of gold determining the carat and the silver and copper creating the pretty pink hue. According to luxury jewellery specialists Steven Stone, research reveals that 'rose gold is the most popular engagement ring metal with 28,772 posts from Instagram users' using the hashtag. That's over double the second favourite, yellow gold!
But it's not just Instagram scrollers who have fallen head over heels for rose gold: celebrities such as Blake Lively, Maria Sharapova and Leighton Meester all own an engagement ring made from this setting.
If you love the idea of a rose gold engagement ring too, we’ve rounded up the very best rose gold engagement rings from our favourite jewellers, or why not also browse our list of alternative engagement rings – there are a few in there that will catch your eye too.
