Pretty without being precious, the blush hue is popping up on everything from engagement rings to bridesmaid dresses.

“Rose gold is romantic and feminine, yet current and unique,” says Revolution Event Design and Production creative director Katie Kirby. Her fiancée, Julie, a gemology graduate student, proposed with a blush champagne sapphire on a rose gold band. “If you want to make a quiet statement,” says Kirby, “I highly recommend it.”
