Do you see the world through rose-colored glasses? We have been lately. Well, rose gold to be exact. This finish is trending in a big way, and we love the way it adds the perfect touch of warmth and sophistication to a home.
"Historically, rose gold gained mainstream popularity in the 1920's when Cartier released their coveted Trinity Band, which consisted of gold, platinum and rose gold bands intertwined," notes Knikki Granthan, Trend Manager for Hickory Hardware. "Then again it peaked during the War Period when the government banned the use of platinum for consumer use, many jewelry makers turned to rose gold for their statement jewelry. After a brief stint in the 50's, rose gold faded again and became "vintage."
Now, rose gold has expanded beyond just jewelry. From hardware to lighting and beyond, this vintage color is now paired with clean lines and simple shapes, making it more modern and very versatile.
