In the Works - Rose Gold

I have become completely smitten with rose gold.

Above are three NEW rings, though only one is currently available in the shop.

Clockwise from the top: 1. Hot pink agate druzy two (2) finger ring.  2. Tangerine quartz double (2) finger ring. 3. Found shell & crystal quartz ring.  All are crafted with 14 karat (gold-filled) rose gold.

Did you know? Gold filled is composed of a solid layer of gold bonded with heat and pressure to brass or copper. It contains more gold than gold-plated or vermeil and is far more durable. It is tarnish resistant and will not wear off or discolor the skin. 

What are your thoughts on rose gold?
Would like to see us expand the collection?
With the sky-rocketing prices of precious metals, how do you feel about gold-filled jewelry?
Are you willing to pay a little bit more for a gold-filled piece versus a piece crafted with silver or gold plated wire?

Please share your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.  I look forward to hearing from you...
