It was at the turn of the 19th century that rose gold became the craze in European jewelry for the first time. In Russia rose gold jewelry became very fashionable after the Napoleonic wars as the Russian officers brought home the spoils of war from Europe, such as rose gold earrings, rings and pendants.
Since that time rose gold became a very important part of the Russian jewelry culture with firmly established roots, to such a degree that today this warm rose tinted, or to be more precise this rosy-yellow or yellowish-rose hue gold is frequently called the "Russian gold".
Rose gold jewelry was making a very confident statement in the world jewelry market within the last 10 years. Nowadays rose gold jewelry is successfully conquering the world markets again. А popularity of rose gold spread throughout Asia, Europe and the United States. All jewelry and watch brands of the world are proudly offering their rose gold collections.

Our customers are frequently asking us about the history and the types of gold alloys and are especially interested in what it is that gives the rose gold its unmistakable warmth and tenderness. Russian 585 rose gold owes its flattering and gentle rosy shade to its unique composition: Au=58.5%, Ag=7%, Cu=32.852%, Zn=1.648%. Russian 585 rose gold does not contain any cadmium known as a very strong allergen. If an item is made in Russia it has to be marked with a stamp of the Russian government assay office that includes the digits 585 and a profile of the girl in a traditional Russian headdress. For the metric system the number "585" indicates the content of gold per 1000 parts of the alloy, meaning that 1 kg of the alloy contains 585 grams of pure gold (or 58.5% of gold). The same is true for marking the content of the other precious metals in the alloys.
According to the karat-based (or "imperial"/"American") system pure gold is 24 karats. The hallmark 14K means that there are 14 parts of pure gold per 24 parts of the total mass of the alloy (58.3% pure gold content alloy). For that reason 585 rose gold jewelry from Russia and European countries has a lightly higher pure gold content than 14K American jewelry.
In hindsight I would like to mention the most common 56 gold of the Russian Empire so typical for Carl Faberge and other famous Russian jewelers of the turn of the 20th century. It may still be found in Russian and Ukrainian heirloom jewelry.
Thus starting May 1, 1798 until 1927 a Russian hallmark system was based on a Russian pound (1 Russian pound=96 zolotniks=409.512 grams. 1 zolotnik=4.266 grams). According to that system 56 stands for 56 zolotniks of pure gold per 96 zolotniks (or per 1 Russian pounds), or 58.3% of pure gold content in the alloy. That's the precise equivalent of pure gold content in the jewelry hallmarked as 14K in the USA, which is slightly less than the content of gold marked 585 according to the European metric system.
