4 Facts about Platinum

Many brides-to-be choose platinum as the metal for their 1 2 carat marquise diamond engagement ring, and below are some reasons why.


  • Platinum is classified as a noble metal, which means it is as pure as 95% when used to make jewelry. It is also hypoallergenic, so it is a good alternative for people who are allergic to gold or silver.
  • It is one of the rarest naturally occurring metals on earth, and is even found to be rarer than diamonds.
  • Platinum is highly durable, unlike gold, which is so soft it thins out over years of wearing it. Platinum diamond rings will not lose their volume from scratches or from being polished.
  • It is a naturally white metal, with a silver color, that reminds one of white gold or polished silver. In fact, the Spanish word “platina” means little silver.
