Rose gold watches are a stylish choice for any watch lover. We can’t get enough of this warm gold alloy, and our favorite luxury watch brands all seem to have their own form of rose gold watches. We buy them as fast as we can, whether they’re a newer Ballon Bleu or a vintage Patek Philippe, and still our watch-loving-clientele want more!
While each luxury watch brand typically has their own proprietary “blend” of metals that create their specific rose gold, they all include gold and copper in their alloys. The traditional blend is 75% gold, 22.5% copper with the remainder of the alloy coming from silver to brighten things up. It’s the copper that lends rose gold its trademark pink hue, but it wasn’t always called rose gold.
“Rose gold was originally called Russian Gold, and was developed by Carl Faberge for use in his famous eggs. The alloy combines copper with yellow gold to create the beautiful blush tone we all know and love. As the allow became more popular around the world, it lost its ties to Imperial Russia and is now known typically as rose gold – though some brands and designers use the term “pink gold” or a proprietary alloy like Rolex’s Everose.”
