I am like many others working more and more often in Rose Gold. I
tend to be working mostly in 14kt, never 10kt and rarely 18kt.
I remember from many years ago when also there was a demand for red
gold, that we would occasionally have a customer that was having a
problem wearing it. Recently I had a customer complain that a Rose
Gold moveable part on the top of her ring (essentially it was a jump
ring that was free to move through a hole in a part on the top of the
ring) was causing her a problem. It left a dark mark on her finger. I
can see a few reasons for this to happen.
However it prompted me to write to the collective knowledge here and
ask… Are there any issues with red gold alloys causing stains on
the wearers skin? Are there issues with red gold alloys tarnishing
much more easily? Have you found that some people cannot wear red
gold alloys? Any other issues that you could share? (Any problems
with the posts on earrings?) Do you give specific care instructions to
purchasers of red gold jewellery?
