In an era of mass produce, it's important to shine in your own way. Vintage inspired is desirable because it evokes the sentiment and romance of years past.
Because of the beautiful craftsmanship such as hand illustration, often the techniques of vintage charms are very interesting.
Rose gold is not a new material, but since Pantone announced rose quartz as color of the year in 2016, it has had a resurgence.
First seen in the 19th century in Russia, it's a blend of yellow gold and copper. Rose gold has a warmth and softness that exudes romance. It's a very durable metal and doesn't require rhodium plating or dipping like white gold.
