It may seem expensive, but look at it this way: If you found a $15,000 diamond in your driveway, would you think it was expensive? Probably not. Because even though diamonds are rare, roses are not. There are almost as many varieties of roses as there are stars in the sky. So actually, this rose has no more value than any other variety of rose. And since they last for decades under proper care and feeding, they're definitely worth something.
Here's how they make the rose: First, they take a cutting from one of these thousands of different varieties of roses and grow it in a greenhouse or garden. Then when it's mature, the plant is removed and the rose is harvested before it falls off the stem. This process can be done twice a year with blooms coming back every other month.
Next, the rose is cleaned with a proprietary formula and placed inside a large metal vat called a rose moulder where special chemicals are used to preserve the flower. Finally, the rose is hand finished with specialized tools including brushes, polishers, and waxes.

True rose gold jewelry, consisting of pure gold and metal alloys, does not fade. While white gold, which is coated with rhodium to give it a whiter, brighter covering, must be re-coated every few years to maintain its luster, rose gold does not. Rhodium is a platinum group metal used in jewelry as an alternative to silver because it gives pieces with color an antique look.
Rose gold tends to be more expensive than silver or white gold, but it's worth the cost for durability reasons. The coating on true rose gold jewelry will never wear off or chip, so over time it will always look good as new. That said, we do recommend wearing rose gold items regularly to keep their look fresh.
Rose gold has become very popular in recent years and it makes sense: it's pretty! But while it may be a good choice for some jewelry items, others might not be as durable as those made from other metals. For example, people have been wearing rose-gold wedding bands for years without any issues at all. However, someone choosing to use rose gold for their entire ring collection should know that they won't last as long since rings are often worn daily.
There are several types of coatings used in jewelry manufacturing. Some examples are: nickel-free brass, copper, titanium, and stainless steel.
Wedding bands made of rose gold The "purest" kind of rose gold is 18ct, which comprises 75% gold and the remainder is primarily copper and maybe a small proportion of silver. We also provide 9ct rose gold wedding bands, which implies 37.5 percent of the metal is gold. These bands are most popular among modern couples who prefer something less flashy but still want to be married in a ring that represents status and wealth.
The reason these bands are more expensive than standard gold rings is that they contain less metal. Also, because they're mixed with other metals they take on the color of the other materials used. For example, an 18ct rose gold band will usually be white or off-white, even if it's not just made from silver. This is because the gold is covering something else - probably silver - so the overall effect is based on what's underneath the gold layer.
There are some treatments done to gold to change its color or style it. With plain old gold jewelry, these methods are used to bring out the natural properties of the metal or alter its appearance completely. But because this type of wedding band contains precious metals, any modification needs to be done carefully and with consideration for the final product.
So, wedding bands made of rose gold are different from ordinary gold rings in that they're usually only half as heavy and they may have another material mixed in.
Rose gold is created by fusing pure gold with copper and silver metal alloys. The amount of each metal used will have an impact on the final color of the rose gold. While gold is white, colors can be added during the manufacturing process to create a variety of results.
There are two main methods used to produce rose gold: electroplating and fusion dipping. Electroplated roses are made by applying a thin layer of gold over the entire surface of the piece, which is then heated to remove any residual material from other areas of the jewelry item. Fusion dipped roses are produced by first melting solid metals together at very high temperatures. The resulting mixture is then poured into molds and allowed to cool down. When it comes out of the mold, there will be a mixture of solidified gold and copper or silver metal alloys.
The quality of rose gold jewelry should be inspected by a professional before use. If you have any doubts about the purity of your gold, then it's best to avoid using it in your projects.
Gold has been used for thousands of years as currency and for ornaments. It is considered to be the most valuable metal in the world today, even more than gold itself.
