Is it just me or has the blushing, glowing shade of rose gold grown on us over the years?
Rose gold plays equally well as a neutral or a shining accent shade. Rose gold seems to have a universally flattering effect on skin tones. I started wondering where rose gold came from; I don’t remember this shade at all while I was growing up in the 1960’s and it looks especially fresh and modern this season.
“In appearance, rose gold is warm and flush—what yellow gold would look like if it suddenly suffered an embarrassment.”

Fast facts: The highest karat version of rose gold is also known as crown gold, which is 22 karat. Eighteen karat red gold may be made of 25% copper and 75% gold. For 18 karat rose gold, typically about 4% silver is added to 75% gold and 21% copper to give a rose color. 14 karat red gold is often found in the Middle East and contains 41.67% copper. —Rose Gold from Wikipedia
I’ve noticed pieces of rose gold creeping into my accessories collection the last couple of years. A few of them have become my ‘go to’ pieces.
The Michael Kors Signature East West tote is my carryall for work each day.
Speaking of style, this is about the most inspiring style I’ve ever seen by a designer. Bravo Tommy Hilfiger!! Thank you, Sally, for sharing this with us.
Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for me. I’ll look forward to sharing more in upcoming posts.Let’s just say my goals of clarity and change for the year are becoming more clear. I feel a bit like a kid in a candy store with the possibilities.
I hope your day has that kind of feel.
