Why Does Rose Gold Tarnish?

by @ 1:08 am on May 26, 2020. Filed under Engagement Ring, Engagement Rings, Wedding Band, Wedding Bands


No as already said, rose gold is high in copper-hence the colour. Tarnish is due to exposure to sulphides in the air and contact with certain foods, such as eggs and onions, sometimes transferred by fingers. It can also be caused by anti-dandruff shampoo and various beauty aids.

Does rose gold jewelry tarnish?

Rose gold engagement rings and wedding bands will not tarnish. Instead, these lustrous rings develop a rich patina over time- it can take a lifetime for the patina to begin to develop, and a patina on a vintage or antique rose gold ring is highly desirable and adds to the value of the ring.
