Red gold, also known as rose gold and pink gold is becoming increasingly popular. Even though the names are often used interchangeably,
there are slight differences between the copper content to distinguish their strength of colour.
- Pink gold alloy consists of less copper than red and rose gold and contains a small percentage of silver. This produces the lightest colour.
- Rose gold is like pink gold but contains less silver and more copper in the alloy mix.
- Red gold alloy consists only of gold and copper. There is no silver in the alloy and therefore is the strongest colour.
Red gold is generally available in 9ct, 14ct and 18ct. The difference in carat purity depends on the amount of gold used in the mix.
