Blush and rose are all the rage when it comes to modern color palettes. Maybe it’s the hues’ subtle vibe and casual nature, but everywhere we turn, there are floral tops, mauve jeans or rose-colored paper goods. We especially love the return of rose gold jewelry amongst these pink trends. Rose gold isn’t your run-of-the-mill metal, however. It’s a mixture of gold and copper alloy, the copper being the reason for the rose-tone result, and we just can’t get enough of this contemporary, re-emerging craze. From spiked drop earrings to simple stackable rings, Buckhead’s boutiques boast plenty of pieces in rosy shades. Take a trip outside of your typical jewelry box and experiment with these chic picks.
1. “T” Time
Debuting this month by Tiffany & Co. is the “T” collection comprising luxurious pieces envisioned by design director Francesca Amfitheatrof. One of these items is this 18k rose gold ring designed with simple, clean lines. It’s meant for daily wear, but you’ll want to keep it on for nighttime events too. The sleek style is intended to be bold and the structure allows the piece to stack above, below and between other rings too.
Tiffany T Square Ring: $1,200, Tiffany & Co. Stores.

2. Crystal Connection
This pendant necklace by Michelle Campbell of Campbell Collections is simple and effortless. The rose gold–toned pick is the one you’ll reach for daily, and the crystal-studded “V” shaped pendant dips into the neckline, revealing just enough sparkle to add spunk to your everyday look.
Campbell Pendant: $78, Club Monaco Stores.

3. Drop It to Me
These Heather Hawkins drop earrings are unexpected—in a good way. The 14k rose gold–plated beauties have a slight edginess, so we envision them as a surprising addition to an all-black ensemble for a night out on the town. The 3.5- inch-long plunging daggers will stand out amid a stylish outfit and pulled-back tresses.

4. Wide Open Spaces
This gold-plated cuff, by Brazilian designer Marcia Moran, gleams in 18k rose gold and a three-tier, wide-open line design. It slips on easily, and adds a touch of sexiness to the arm when wearing a sleeveless or short-sleeved top.
Marcia Moran Lines Cuff: $150, Palas Jewelers.
