If you didn't know the story behind rose gold before watching the video above, then you're not alone. But chemistry aside, what we do know about the pink-hued precious metal is that it's totally beautiful.
Most people either identify themselves as a "gold person" or a "silver person," choosing one of the metals as the best color for their skin tone and personal style. However, we've noticed that rose gold tends to look great on everyone. Could it be the most universally flattering metal ever? We think so.
"Rose gold is amazing -- it pulls out the blushy undertones in so many different skin colors," jewelry designer Ariel Gordon told The Huffington Post. "There's just a harsher contrast against the skin when someone is wearing yellow gold, silver or platinum jewelry. Rose gold is much softer, but still makes a statement."
And beyond skin tone, the Los Angeles-based designer says that rose gold looks great when worn with other metal hues -- so no need to ditch Team Gold or Team Silver when rocking it.
We've conducted a bit of research via Instagram to illustrate just how awesome rose gold looks on a spectrum of skin tones. Make sure to check out the rose gold jewelry we pulled together at the bottom so you can get in on the fabulosity.
