What is the main difference between a 9 or 10K compared to a 14 or 18K? My E ring will be made in 9K rose gold in the setting..and I am still debating on having the same 9K rose gold shank or 18k white gold (apparently two tone e rings can look raelly good!)

The difference is the shade of pink. 10k is the most pink, then 14k is a bit more peach, and 18k is almost copper like.

The pink hue comes from the ammount of copper the gold is alloyed with (I’m pretty sure anyway).

10k is also stronger, the lower the carat the stronger the gold.

I’m sure you could get a ring plated in rose gold, but you would have to redip it over the years. Just like white gold.
