Hey ladies! I am currently looking at ideas to send to my boyfriend for my perfect ring! I am wondering if you ladies could share pictures and state whether your ring is 14kt or 18kt rose gold? I am wondering if there is a big difference between the color. Also, have any of you ladies noticed a copper residue on your finger after wearing your ring? I am sure they are all the best quality but I just want to double check before I committ to the rose gold.
Thank you in advance for all your help!

@MissHockey: i’m not sure the difference in the 14 or 18 however i just wanted to comment that i have never had any copper residue on my finger after wearing my ring. 🙂

The rose color comes from the copper, and because 14kt gold has less gold than 18kt, there is more room for copper. So 14kt gold can be a bit pinker than 18kt, but it won’t always be. It depends on the alloy the company uses.
I have a few 18kt rose gold pieces and it’s such a beautiful rosy color and no it doesn’t leave a copper residue.

Different vendors have different colors and blends of rose gold. 14K will generally be a little bit rosier because there’s less gold (yellow) and more copper (pink color).

@MissHockey: I don’t have any pictures for you but 14kt rose gold is generally more pink (higher percentage copper) than 18kt gold (higher percentage gold, less copper). Personally I prefer the color of 14kt rose gold to 18kt rose gold, but it’s probably a good idea to try it on your skin tone. Rose gold is an alloy so the copper is melted with the gold, so you shouldn’t notice any copper residue on your finger! Good luck with your decision!
