Rose gold is “colored” with copper, so it should contain very, very little nickel, if any.

My ering is 14k rose gold.. we had it custom made and i was told by my jeweler that it typically does not contain nickel..from my understanding its gold copper and silver.

The majority of my jewellery is rose gold, my understanding is that it’s a mixture of gold, copper and silver or palladium. 

I’m in the UK, and here there are regulations on the use of nickel in jewellery. It’s not used in white gold either. The alloy might differ in the US.
