What about a pink gold engagement ring?

Pretty in Pink has returned. It is the it color of the new generation on engagements. The young woman are going for the pink. Pink was very popular in Russia during the 19th century. And it was known as Russian gold since they were the only ones to wear jewelry in that color. Pink gold is a mixture of yellow gold with copper to give it the pink hue.
