Rose Gold

Rose Gold is appearing in jewelry more and more each day. It first made its appearance in Russia in the early 19th century and became known as Russian Gold. Somewhere along the lines it fizzled out and  is making a comeback in the 21st century, now known as Pink or Rose Gold. The color is made by adding a little bit of copper to the Gold mixture, thus making it appear pink! We are seeing this precious metal appear in bridal jewelry and love the way it looks with a Morganite! The Rose Gold compliments the Morganite and really makes is shine.

Pink Gold Morganite and Diamond Engagement Rings

Try adding a rough cut or a brown diamond for a nontraditional engagement ring.

Rose Gold with Cognac Diamond or Pink Rough Cut

Love the look of Rose Gold but don't have the money to spend for an everyday piece? Try copper! It will give you a similar appearance but at a fraction of the cost.

How did your significant other propose?

Surprised me with a weekend in Aspen at the St. Regis. Even on the drive up, I thought we were going to Moab. He took me to Maroon Bells and made me hike 11 miles before proposing overlooking Crater Lake. It was a beautiful blue sky kind of day!

How did you choose your engagement ring and/or wedding bands? Tell us about the process of designing your rings and about your experience at Ooh! Aah! Jewelry.

My late grandma left me her ring. After a recommendation to go to Ooh! Aah! (I didn't want to work with a large retail store), we worked with Hannah to redesign the ring of my dreams. She had great ideas and was fantastic to work with! Very patient with my fiance during the process and superb customer service. She also designed my bridesmaid jewelry!

What is your advice for others who are looking for their rings?

Come with ideas but often what you think you like is not what you go for. Be open! See what looks good on your hand.

Designer Spotlight: Liquid Metal Collection

Liquid Metal Collection bracelets are some of our favorites here at Ooh Aah--we love how these unique pieces can easily make any outfit feel more special!

 

Sergio Gutierrez is the designer behind Liquid Metal. In 1991 he moved to San Francisco from Colombia to begin researching ways of using ball chain to create a mesh like fabric. After 2 years he developed what is now the basis of his Liquid Metal Mesh line of jewelry and accessories.

In 1996 his company began growing with the addition of Nordstrom, Bebe, and Cache. His designs are collected and worn by celebrities such as: Demi Moore, Cher, Patricia Wettig, Marilyn Manson, Sara Michelle Gellar, Sharon Stone, Thalia, Tyra Banks, and many more.

His jewelry is favored by many who value comfortable and unique jewelry that can be worn every day-dressed up or down! With their smooth, mesh-like qualities these bracelets feel like fabric against the skin. They are also durable and are easy to put on and off with their snap and magnetic closures.

Sergio's new earring collection uses the same techniques as his bracelets to create glam chandelier earrings...we love these showstoppers!

All of our Liquid Metals jewelry is maintenance-free. Made of a nickel alloy, these pieces have an amazing shine that won't tarnish.
