What is Rose Gold?
Rose Gold is a shade of Pink with a soft, golden finish which has a certain vintage appeal and has been particularly popular over the past few years, mainly thanks to a range of Apple products first made available in Rose Gold with their iPhone range of smartphones back in September 2015.
Where Did Rose Gold Come From, And Why Is It So Popular?
Rose Gold started in 19th Century Imperial Russia when Carl Fabergé mixed Yellow Gold and Copper together to create a blushed colour which was then known as Russian Gold, and he used this blend of metals in one of his famous creations, the Fabergé Eggs. Subsequently, as this precious metal became popular among jewellers around the globe, it became known as Rose Gold. Afterwards, in the 1920s, Cartier sparked a new trend in Rose Gold jewellery and it’s popularity has existed ever since. In more modern times, the popularity of Rose Gold in various smart phones, gadgets and high-street fashion makes it a popular choice for many fashion-conscious individuals looking for a blend between luxury and fashion.
Each year, the Pantone Institute names it’s Colour of The Year, trying to capture the world’s most popular trends within that colour, and they named Rose Quartz, a derivative of Rose Gold (along with Serenity), their 2016 Colour of The Year. Leatrice Eiseman, an executive director of the Pantone Institute, stated “There’s a lot of research that goes into what colour means and how it makes a statement to most people. When we get to the Rose family, we get these same kinds of verbiage: Compassion, composure, warmth, something that draws you in that has great appeal.”
How Durable is Rose Gold HTV?
We’re happy to confirm that when applied with a heat press and washed at the lowest temperature recommended by either the garment or HTV, Sportsfilm Extra T-Shirt Vinyl, Premium Plus Stretchable HTV and Glitter HTV have all been tested to meet the Stahls’ promise of 50 washes which is the industry benchmark for HTV durability.
Due to the combination of fabrics, weaves, and dyes used in the textile industry, testing is recommended – We offer free A4-sized samples of all of our Garment Vinyls, including the different types of Rose Gold HTV, for testing purposes and would be happy to send them out for you to try.
