Recently we have seen this trend continue in store, especially with Men's wedding rings. Here, Ashton, Cassandra and Michael share their thoughts about the popularity of rose gold and why it is the choice for men in 2017.

"I think guys are going for rose gold purely as it's a new twist on an old favourite (the old favourite being yellow gold).

We do have a really great rose gold colour here at Gerard McCabe, and I think guys feel comfortable enough with our colour to step away from the traditional yellow gold and use rose instead, and not be too 'out there' by wanting to be a little different.

Choosing rose gold means men can be different with their choice of weddinring without compromising a great design."

"From my perspective, it is simply reverting back to the romantic era of Victorian times. The Victorians were restrained and conservative in their social interactions and depended very much on jewellery to express their longing for adventure and exotic cultures. Rose gold was brought to prominence by Faberge, the great Russian jeweller to the Czar,  he used it to express opulence as well as flamboyance. It was considered, by the English, to be extravagant and rare. Men started indulging in watch chains and watches made of this material. In the 20's Cartier started using Rose Gold in their fabulous creations.

Cartier was a trend setter and so its popularity spread.

People now are intrigued and attracted by the more exotic and warm hues of Rose Gold."

It is simply a return to good taste.


"I have noticed a growing awareness of Rose Gold across men’s and women’s wedding and engagement ring consultations. In particular, men are embracing rose gold ( or old fashioned gold, as everything old is new again )

This is seen as a complement to her wedding/engagement ring choices which are increasingly combinations of white and rose gold.

The other driver towards Rose is in that quest for a point of difference.  This can be achieved with Rose or Rose White Gold combinations,  while still retaining the more classic and timeless designs that men intuitively know will stand the test of time."

We are also noticing that Men are becoming more fashionable - more aware of what is popular and on trend generally in the fashion world - which then translates to them and their choices for their weddings.

Sometimes the choice of Rose Gold can be as simple as wanting to match their partner's wedding band and engagement ring - another symbol of love and the forever after bond.

While white gold and platinum suits cooler skin tones, and yellow gold suits warmer skin tones, Rose gold, however, is much more forgiving on most skin tones. Therefore making it an easier choice for people - no need to always have tanned skin for your yellow gold jewellery.
