Rose gold: who can resist it? Here at La Belle we simply love, love, love it! A gorgeous twist on traditional yellow rose gold is imbued with the warmest, pink-tinged tones. What better a metal and colour to incorporate into your wedding? Let us tell you why it’s so special.

First fashionable in Russia throughout the 19th century, rose gold was later used in jewellery in the ornate Victorian era. In the Roaring 20’s, iconic jeweller Cartier won a legion of fans by integrating this precious metal into his pieces. Women valued it for its beautiful glimmer and warmer, romantic appeal.

Today, this copper-infused alloy is a must for weddings and engagements — think rings and bands and hair accessories; there are so many ways to utilise it!

Here are our top ten tricks for bringing a little rose gold fever to your big day. It’s the metallic you’ve always dreamed about but never knew how to incorporate!

1) Wedding Rings:

Rose gold wedding rings are a beautiful twist on their traditional yellow counterparts. Complimentary to any skin tone, invest in a pair of gorgeous bands.
