I found an interesting ring and i am so dumb i didn't bookmark it! I though oh, I'll be able to find it again, but i can't! the company made rough looking jewelry, very nature-ee, with lot's of rough and natural textures. anyway they had a ring made of what looked like a nice blood red ruby set in rough red gold. It did not look like rose gold - it looked really red. it caught my eye, but now it's really growing on me. has anyone else out there seen really red gold?

Mira, I was curious about red gold and this is what I found.
This first one is 12k red gold from the black hills line.

The next one is 14k red gold from mokume gane.

This next one is 18k red gold

Another 18k red gold from hattengarden

This last pic is not gold at all but red enamel, it has a ruby red color
.
Have you tried going into the history up in the tool bar to locate the websites you've been to?

What would make the gold more of a red color than rose?
Quote this post and reply to it Post#5 @ 01-16-04 , 11:08 AM


More copper mix in with the gold or another red color element

that makes sense, but then how come the colors that you see out there are so standardized?

I have seen many different shades of red, pink, or rose gold. There are quite distinct colors to Rolex, IWC, Omega, and Patek's version of that alloy. Yellow seems to be fairly uniform, but pink/red/rose are not, at least not in the watches I have seen. Maybe it's the sheer mass of the case that makes the differences so noticeable.

Here is an example, but I don't think the photo shows the difference as well as in person.

Again, the one on the right is the Omega and it is rather redder than the IWC on the left.

BTW the IWC is a Portuguese (model number 3714) and is a large chunk of gold. It is my most costly watch and one of my most prized possessions.

Looie wants to wear it to the bars. Hasn't happened yet.

Pink, rose, red gold seems to vary from a very light near-yellow (peh! might as well **be** yellow gold), to the gorgeous deeper "red" gold (which I usually describe as a very deep, rich rose gold) It's my absolute favorite metal! The deeper richer colors can sometimes be found in antique jewelry.
Custom jewelers should have no problem adding more copper to alloy if requested.

Hi, I cast red gold or rose gold wedding rings all the time, its nice stuff, you cant get it any more red than normal copper though, however mixed with gold it has the luster of gold. Its nice, great for people with a more olive skin color, hence why it is used as a normal alloy in Eastern Europe, not quite rose, but more red, most people who only wear silver and look bad with yellow gold, look great with a rose gold band.

Gold itself is a yellow metallic element but, in its pure form, it is too soft to be used for general jewellery purposes, although there are some cultures which do wear pure gold jewellery, it would need to be heavily made and carefully used. The yellow colour of gold is caused by gold absorbing violet and blue light, but reflecting yellow and red light.
