Why choose a platinum engagement ring?
Platinum is a naturally occurring white metal that is rarer, heavier, and harder than gold. Due to its hardness, platinum can also be used in a purer form than gold. Although platinum comes at a slightly higher price point to gold, it is essentially more cost-effective in the long run as there is no need for recoating as it is truly white, whereas you may need to have your white gold ring recoated in rhodium every so often. This is because of the platinum’s extreme density and chemical structure.
Also, if you prefer your engagement ring to have a greater weight, a platinum engagement ring will be heavier than a white gold ring because it is denser. They are also hypoallergenic and so will not cause any issues for those with nickel alloy allergies.
Overall, a platinum engagement ring is a classic, high end ring that requires minimum upkeep and keeps your precious diamonds safe! Its soft hue is visually stunning and is a great option for those who want a weighty, sturdy, contemporary finish to their engagement ring.
