So where does rose gold come from? Rose gold is part of the family called “Colored Gold” where many colors can be produced. Pure 100% gold is slightly reddish yellow in color and at 24 karats, is very soft. When silver and copper alloys are present, it gives a range of colorful gold. Depending on the amount of alloy present in different proportions, it will produce white, whitish, pale greenish yellow, yellowish, yellow, reddish, and copper red colors.
Pink gold uses the least copper, followed by rose gold, with red gold having the highest copper content. For example, 18K Rose gold has the following alloys: 75% gold, 22.25% copper, 2.75% silver.
Compared to 18K Pink gold: 75% gold, 20% copper, 5% silver; and 18K Red gold: 75% gold, 25% copper.

Rose gold, also known as pink gold and red gold, is traced back to the beginning of the nineteenth century in Russian jewelry.
