18 carat Rose Gold vs 9 carat Rose Gold

Compare 9 carat and 18 carat Rose Gold and you will no doubt see a difference in colour. 9 carat Rose Gold tends to be darker and more coppery by comparison. The higher Gold content of 18 carat gives it a lighter colour. For this reason, we recommend 18 carat Rose Gold. In addition, the higher Gold content makes it a more durable choice for long-term wear.
