Roses are symbolic for many reasons.
When roses first meet the eye they are primarily a symbol of love however they also represent honour, passion, beauty, faith and balance. It is the most significant of all flowers and therefore is no wonder why its presence in Jewellery is so strong.
When incorporated into jewellery, roses often appear dainty and delicate making them a great sentimental gift to be given to a friend or a loved one.
Interestingly, in recent rose-inspired pieces, the stem of the plant is also included. With alternative flowers, the stem is insignificant however the thorns and the leaf of a rose can provide stunning intricacy and detail to any jewellery piece.
Nikita by Niki loves rose-inspired art, resulting in the launch of our Infinity Rose Necklace, Rose Stem Hoops and our new and most popular Valentina Rose Gold Statement Choker.
What better compliments a rose pendant than a rose gold base? The demand for rose gold has increased substantially since 2016. We believe it to be because it is a little less punitive than yellow gold but remains warm and is perfect for casual or evening wear.
Rose gold is flattering for any skin-tone adding to its versatility, making it easy to style with a variety of colour and patterns.
Rose gold is certainly a trend that won’t be going away anytime soon as it has quickly become somewhat timeless. The combination of rose gold and rose pendants produces precious jewellery like no other.
This year floral motives will not just be for summer, and the impressive presence of roses in fine jewellery will definitely continue to increase.
