If you’re looking for the perfect backdrop for your diamond, look no further than one of the world’s rarest metals. The ultimate statement in jewellery, platinum is a precious metal with a beautiful cool white sheen. What makes it so special is that its low reflection point doesn’t reflect colour which allows your centre stone’s brilliance to take centre stage.
Platinum used in jewellery is typically comprised of 95% platinum and 5% alloy metals – labelled as 950 platinum.
Synonymous with opulence and luxury, this exclusive material is mined at a rate of 1/10 that of gold, making it a special choice for engagement and wedding rings alike. It carries a premium price point as its glorious shine is easy to retain with simple polishing. It’s also one of the most economical and buffing with a soft cloth doesn’t remove any layers, unlike with gold. In fact, some say it gets better with age, thanks to its stunning patina that develops over time.
Furthermore, platinum engagement rings are nickel-free so make a great choice for brides and grooms with sensitive skin as platinum is hypoallergenic, it can be worn every day with comfort and ease.
