The Rise of Rose Gold: Is it the New Black?
Rose gold has been a prominent colour in the fashion industry for quite some time, but it comes in and out of popularity. We can say now, for sure, it’s definitely IN. Why the sudden surge in popularity again? You can thank a certain phone manufacturer’s 6th version of their best-selling smartphone. When they released a rose gold tinted phone, the world went crazy for it. Since that time, the hue hasn’t seemed to have shifted in the fashion world. In actuality, it’s no longer restricted to the fashion world – now crafters can go mad for rose gold, too.
The colour ‘rose gold‘ is the combination phrase given to gold alloy mixed with copper, resulting in a pinkish-gold shade. But the official term sounds way fancier. What makes the hue so popular is probably that’s it’s a shade of pink – but isn’t too pink. It’s a little girly, but not too girly. Rose gold is the perfect in between; it’s warm and almost blushes in the light. The colour is notoriously found within the jewellery industry; some fine jewellers favour this hue because it’s more subtle than vibrant yellow gold or bright white gold. It’s fierce, it’s flattering, and the best part? We have rose gold craft products here at Create & Craft!
