Lately, we're seeing everything — bridal shoes, all kinds of jewelry, and wedding dresses — through rose-colored glasses. But perhaps are favorite petal-tinged wedding item are rose gold engagement rings! After all, celebrities like Blake Lively and recent Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock are rocking rose gold-set gemstones.
Completely on-trend, rose gold is a great alternative to yellow gold. Not only is it a romantic hue, the pinky-yellow shade is very flattering on fairer skin-tones. Plus, it blends well with other metals. So if you're not into a full-on rose setting, you can opt for a mixed-metal ring featuring platinum or white gold with rose gold (just like Hartsock's Neil Lane ring!).
Rose gold settings especially stand out when done in a vintage aesthetic. Whether you choose something with flowery accents, an etched or hammered band, or a century-old stone, the metal looks its best when welded to emulate an era past.
Another bonus to buying a rose gold ring? It looks especially great with colorful gemstones — be it an equally blushing ruby or completely contrasting sapphire. Also fully-saturated stones are another big engagement ring trend right now, making your sparkler extra en vogue.
