Platinum Engagement Rings

Platinum is an uncommon, precious metal. It is known for its flawless metallic white color, its durability and toughness. Platinum engagement rings are the choice of most couples simply because they are as elegant as they are tough.  All certified platinum jewelry is of 95% purity (with the 5% being other alloys such as palladium). 

Why Should One Choose Platinum Engagement Rings?

  • Platinum is a tough metal that can withstand harshness and does not tarnish under normal circumstances.
  • Platinum is white in color and therefore goes well with any precious stone used in the ring setting. It flows easily into the design and the prongs are so strong that they can hold the weight of precious stones with ease.
  • Since platinum is inert, it is also hypoallergenic. It is therefore recommended for the sensitive skinned people.
  • May we say, platinum is a diamond’s friend; simply because its white color does not provide stark contrast to the diamonds used in the jewelry. Also, unlike gold, it does not easily wear away or oxidize, thus keeping the diamond tight in its place.
  • Simply put, platinum engagement rings are eternal in beauty and luster as well.
