After Blake Lively donned a rose gold engagement ring on her finger from Ryan Reynolds last fall, the style became a top trend. According to People magazine, Reynolds selected celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz in search of a bright pink oval-shaped diamond engagement ring. They then collaborated to custom design a rose gold setting with pavé diamonds for an art deco feel. Her wedding ring, also by Schwartz, is rose gold as well.
More recently, E! Online reported that Chris Siegfried proposed to "The Bachelorette" Desiree Hartsock with an 18-karat rose gold and platinum ring by Neil Lane, which featured a cushion cut center surrounded by 204 tiny round-cut diamonds.
It's clear that rose gold is becoming more popular with celebs, and regular women all over are following suit. Why? A rose gold setting has a warm, romantic quality, making it a perfect metal to represent a lifelong love. The Huffington Post noted that rose gold is also highly versatile and works with any skin tone and ensemble. More importantly, the hue is unique, symbolizing a marriage that is unlike any other. It's no wonder brides are embracing the trend not only for their wedding ring, but other accessories as well. Here are just a few ideas for incorporating rose gold into your big day with pieces from fine jewelers.
Ways to wear it
When it comes to rose gold wedding jewelry, there are a bevy of styles that make different statements. The Huffington Post highlighted a pair of twisted knot earrings, which are perfect for a nautical-themed wedding. Alternatively, you could don simple disks encircled with crystals for some retro Hollywood glamor. Rose gold studs in a star or other fun shape are a playful idea for bridesmaids.
Rose gold can also be eye-catching around your neck. The Huffington Post recommended a sleek statement collar necklace in hammered metal, which is bold without being too overdone. The news outlet suggested a delicate long necklace with hammered detailing for a casual wedding on the beach. A rose gold locket that looks as if it was plucked from your grandmother's jewelry box has old world charm.
When only a rose gold ring will do, you still have endless options to make the trend your own. Glamour Magazine pointed out that a pink stone looks stunning in a rose gold setting. Additionally, diamonds in a flower shape are both cheery and feminine. You could also follow Lively's lead and opt for a pavé ring, which is effortlessly elegant. Looking for something offbeat? The Huffington Post recommended a pear-shaped diamond for a vintage vibe or a simple chain link band for a modern look.
