Rose Gold Beads & Findings

Xinar offers the most delicate beads for jewelry-making, including rose gold-filled beads. Craft classic and unique rose gold bracelets and other rose gold-filled jewelry with our regular stock of rose-gold filled beads and findings.

Xinar’s Gold-Filled Guarantee

Here at Xinar, we prioritize the joy and satisfaction of our customers, so we would never sell gold-filled items that are electroplated or just gold-plated. These terms matter because if you don’t know precisely what you are paying for, you may be paying more than what the store gives you.

Xinar has been selling jewelry-making supplies since the 1990s, and you can say that “we’ve seen it all” in the industry. Some stores misrepresent their products, using the term “gold-filled” even if technically, their items are “gold-washed” or gold-plated only. These terms matter because they provide information on how much gold content there is in jewelry-making supplies like 14k rose gold and other regular stock, like jump rings (findings), ear wires, etc. 

Xinar guarantees that all its rose-gold filled beads and findings are genuinely gold-filled.

According to the FTC, gold-filled refers to goods that have been mechanically coated to specific coverage and thickness. In the process, the objects are assured longevity. Sellers and manufacturers of gold-filled jewelry-making supplies must also use the proper designations when describing their products. For example, the karat fineness must immediately precede or occur before the top title of the item for the alloy’s classification to be “conspicuous and accurate.”

A karat measures gold purity. Purity is denoted as “K” or “k,” which should not be confused with “carat,” which is the measure of the purity of gemstones. The ratio of the metals’ quantities is used to determine the purity of a gold alloy.

Our manufacturer uses a proprietary gold-bonding method where pure gold is atomically bonded to the core, which is the jeweler’s brass. As a result, all our beads and findings are durable and lustrous and will naturally resist corrosion and tarnishing for a long, long time. So, if you are thinking of crafting rose gold-filled jewelry that will eventually become heirloom pieces to be appreciated by generations to come, Xinar’s regular stock of rose gold-filled beads and rose gold-filled findings are here for you.

The Beauty of Rose Gold

What Is Rose Gold?

This metal, sometimes known as red gold or pink gold, isn’t entirely made of gold. Rose gold color is also well-loved globally. 

Rose gold is a delicate blend of copper metals, traditional yellow gold, and sometimes, even silver. When yellow gold is alloyed with copper, a most familiar beautiful pink tint (the rose gold color) is created.

Even though rose gold isn’t 100% gold, it is made with pure yellow gold – the same gold that comes from the ground. The greater the karat number, the more refined the gold content for those unfamiliar with how gold in jewelry works. For example, 18 karat gold has 75% gold, while 14 karat gold is equivalent to 58% gold.

Rose gold is created by combining amounts of gold and other metals. The karat number refers to the number of “parts” of gold in jewelry, beads, or findings.

To review, 24-karat gold is 100% pure gold. The other metals added to pure gold are referred to as “alloys.” For example, rose gold is primarily comprised of copper and silver alloys.

Metals are added to pure gold to achieve specific results. Copper and silver, for example, are added to pure gold because of the favorable pink tint.

However, there’s an older reason why most gold jewelry is never made of pure gold. Pure gold bends easily and is highly malleable. As a result, it would never hold up to daily wear. Regularly wearing pure gold jewelry will eventually dent, bend and ruin such an expensive piece of jewelry.

Adding more vital metals to gold allows it to be transformed into hardier jewelry that will resist tarnishing and resist physical stresses. As a result, high-quality rose gold is both durable and beautiful.

When metals lose their brilliance, darken, and rust because of chemical reactions with the air, they are tarnished pieces.

Rose Gold and Tarnishing

On older jewelry or decor, tarnish is usually extremely obvious. Tarnish often appears as a black coating on metal, much like dirt on any old object. So what’s the good news here? Rose gold has tarnish-resistant properties. After years of use, though, it will become naturally darker, and its reddish tone may intensify.

The darkening and reddening aren’t precisely due to tarnishing, however. Remember rose gold alloys? The copper component of rose gold darkens the more it ages. But don’t worry – it can take many years of wear and tear for this darkening and reddening to occur, so there’s no need to be concerned. Many people seek this darkened and vintage look for their jewelry because it makes their possessions appear vintage and, consequently, more valuable.

Because of the copper alloy, rose gold inherit’s copper’s durability. Copper is one of the most durable and functional metals. Copper use is as old as human civilization. It’s used in almost every industry, from building construction to the manufacturing of electrical cables.

Therefore, investing in rose gold-filled beads and findings means you’re investing in one of the best materials for ornamental projects and jewelry. You’ve found one of the best options for durable gold jewelry.

Rose Gold Care Tips

Do you have rose gold jewelry at home? Whether it’s rose gold or rose-gold filed, you’re still dealing with the same alloy. Below are some essential home care tips for rose gold owners.

  • Soak your gold jewelry for 3 hours before gently scrubbing it with a soft brush. Rinse with clean water before blotting dry.
  • Polish your jewelry with a jewelry polishing cloth for an extra shine! Using a paper towel or tissue to clean your jewelry will scratch it.
  • Clean your jewelry at home if you like, but don’t overdo it! For example, only clean rose gold jewelry appears to be visibly dirtied, or it has developed a patina.
  • Avoid cleaning any jewelry with ammonia and bleach.
  • Watch for any loose or broken gemstones. Cleaning these damaged components will only exacerbate the problem if you’re not a professional jeweler.
