Rose gold seems to be everywhere these days, from gadgets to jewellery, and yes, even to hairdressing scissors. Its gentle, romantic colour provides a luminous glow that eludes classic elegance but with a hint of personality. Compared to those bland, monochromatic metallics such as gold and silver, rose gold offers you that fun, refreshing edge that easily complements both male and female stylists.
The History of Rose Gold
We owe the discovery of this unique, subtle hue to Carl Fabergé, a renowned jeweller in 19th century Imperial Russia. He was able to achieve this blush-toned hue by mixing yellow gold with the reddish-toned copper. The colour was initially referred to as “Russian Gold”, and as it became popular with jewellers around the world, it eventually got the name rose gold.
There are a lot of variations out there that attempt to mix gold and copper together, resulting in a more scarlet coloured shade. Few artisans have the ability to find the balance between copper, gold, and a hint of silver, to come up with the exquisite rose gold shimmer that everyone has been raving about.
As a stylist, getting that perfect rose gold hue is an obvious must! Not only do we want our shears to be of high quality and look absolutely stunning, we also want it to last for years.
The Matsui Rose Gold Collection
Our Matsui brand offers a wide-range of rose gold scissors that showcases that unique rose gold colour in a radiant shade that impresses but does not overpower, resulting in a classic hue that goes with any skin colour.
At Scissor Tech, we also value quality above everything else, which is why we only use the highest quality Japanese steel. To make the colours of our shears last, we’ve hired the services of one of the best in the industry when it comes to titanium colour coating. In fact, our shears are serviced by the same company that does colour finishing for premium Casio watches.
