Love of Rose Gold

Rose gold has become very popular in the last few years, yet is not new to the jewelry industry. Rose gold got its start in the 19th century in Russia. Carl Faberge was one of the first to use rose gold in his lovely Faberge eggs, blending gold and copper. This blend created a lovely pinkish material that was first coined as Russian Gold. As it gained popularity it became know as "Rose Gold".

The depth of rose gold color depends on the ratio of copper to gold, ranging from soft pink to a more reddish pink. The higher the copper content, the darker red the gold is. For 14k Rose Gold consists of 58% Gold, 40% Copper, 1% Silver, and 1% Zinc. For 18 karat rose gold, typically about 4% silver is added to 75% gold and 21% copper. 

For this reason, rose gold is not considered hypo-allergenic. 

Rose gold continues to show off its beauty and compliments many beautiful gemstones and diamonds, in particular the Morganite, which has been very popular in today's bridal market. 

Feel free to browse the website for gorgeous rose gold options. Any of these rings can be created in 18k rose gold upon request, subject to increase of cost. 

Thank you and have a lovely day!

Where Does Time Go?

Where does the time go, we ask. Busy schedules, family time, events and just LIFE! I too have been busy with moving, learning new jewelry techniques and constantly striving for better. 

While the wheel of time is spinning, I hope to add more new pieces to the shop. With a passion for gorgeous fine, one of a kind gemstones in various sizes ( yes, I like BIG stones ), this is getting to be more fun than ever! I also am a Rapnet member, which provides me with access to basically any diamond in the world. With this fantastic combination, we can dream up basically anything!

Feel free to email me anytime. Also, check out my Instagram where you can see videos of these fine gemstones, diamonds and ring designs at Resa Wilkinson Jewelry. 

May you and yours be blessed and happy during these holidays. 

Love,

Holiday Shopping 2015

As we gather our lists of gifts for the upcoming holidays for those we love, so much is considered. Giving feels wonderful and fills our hearts with joy to see others receive what we give. These gifts will become memories in later times. Maybe for a child, a grandchild, a husband or wife, partners and friends. It is during this time that I hope I can help others obtain the goal of perfect gift giving.
