Platinum is a naturally occurring and highly valued precious white metal popularly used in jewelry, it is rarer, heavier, and harder than gold and silver. Platinum has been widely used in engagement rings since the 1800s and its strength and density increase its durability making it suitable for everyday wear. Loved for its color, its elegant white luster is particularly excellent in reflecting the radiance of colorless diamonds, making the gem more prominent because of the light interaction.
Platinum’s color gorgeously complements diamonds and other precious stones of other colors as well, making their color appear bolder. Platinum bands look great on their own or as a backdrop for delicate pave details for extra sparkle. Although white gold is a close alternative, platinum does not need to be replated and it is also hypoallergenic. These rings are also stronger than silver and gold, the latter of which is alloyed with other metals such as nickel to increase its hardness.
