If you're thinking of proposing with a rose gold Australian opal engagement ring, you can rest assured that you've picked a great setting for your perfect opal. Rose gold is trendy with a vintage feel. At the turn of the 19th century rose gold was so popular across Imperial Russia that it was called "Russian Gold". Although that term has fallen out of fashion, rose gold is back in a big way internationally and is showing no signs of going out of style. Rose gold is a very durable metal because it is mixed with copper. Like yellow gold or white gold, we recommend using 14k or 18k rose gold for an Australian opal engagement ring.
Rose gold is interesting in that it looks different on everyone. To see if it compliments their skin tone, I would encourage your partner to try on some rose gold rings and determine whether or not they find it flattering. It's just like going shopping and trying on clothes... sometimes you just have to see something on to tell whether or not it's the right fit.
Rose gold looks amazing with white and crystal Australian opals that have flashes of red, orange and pink. The coppery hue of the rose gold brings out this fire and enhances the warm tones that are sparkling on the face of the opal. Look for white opals that have rosy hues (this is a lot easier than you'd think). Matched with the rose gold, those bold, bright flashes of pink colour will be emphasised and magnificently eye catching.
If your partner has their heart set on an Australian black opal with a rose gold setting - no worries! That would look great too. We've had a few customers asking for exactly the same thing. I'd be happy to work with you to bring this vision to life.
