Making rose gold malleable enough to achieve the right thickness and turn it into leaf was far from easy. However, innovation and a desire to transcend standards are the lifeblood of our family and company, and so we decided to embrace this new challenge. Today, after eight years of research and experimentation, we are truly proud to inform you that we have emerged victorious and that rose gold leaf has at last been added to the 25 colours of gold leaf already available in our catalogue.
22 kt rose gold leaf by Giusto Manetti Battiloro is the first and only available one for all professionals and enthusiasts in the world of gilding. This extraordinary product is in a league of its own compared to imitation and non- precious metal leaves available on the market, and even to copper leaf, often wrongly called «rose gold leaf».
22kt rose gold leaf is available across our full range of products. According to use, it is available for purchase in loose and transfer booklets as well as rolls. It can be applied with different gilding techniques (oil and water), always guaranteeing excellent results in terms of quality and beauty. Rigorous tests carried out at specialised laboratories also confirm its excellent resistance to oxidation.
From the most precious watches to smartphone covers, jewellery, celebrity eyewear and hairstyles, metal accessories on belts and bags: rose gold is an authentic trend that now features in collections by the best international brands. In complete disregard of alchemists, who in Medieval times viewed it as no more than an accident along the road of gold chemical reactions, this unusual colour variety was welcomed with open arms in the world of fashion and design. A victory for the great jeweller Carl Fabergé (1846-1920): he was the first to foresee the potential of this precious metal and used it extensively in the creation of his famous imperial eggs. The popularity of its “reinvention” grew hand in hand with the fame of his works and soon news of the beauty, delicateness and freshness of rose gold emerged from 19th century Russia and became famous worldwide.
