Since the production of the first Rose Gold Millennium Diamond Ring, we’ve seen this signature Shimansky original become ever so popular — and for good reason! Referred to as the ‘metal of the moment’, rose gold is both a unique and extremely beautiful pink-hued metal derived from gold (yellow) and copper (red) alloys which illuminates a natural and romantic feel. Rose gold complements almost any skin-tone, providing a subtle yet elegant appearance. It can also be worn alongside white metals (Platinum and 18k White Gold) or yellow metals (18k Yellow Gold).
The romantic rose gold metal complements the iconic Millennium Diamond Ring which perfectly captures the essence of commitment. Its two bands represent the coming together of two lives which are joined by a Shimansky diamond in the centre, becoming a symbol of forever.
