THE BEAUTY & PURITY OF PLATINUM
BY LINDSEY SCOGGINS STUDIO
When it comes to selecting the best metal for jewelry pieces or engagement rings, there is a lot to consider. If you know that you like the look of a silver metal over yellow or rose gold, we recommend using platinum. While both platinum and white gold are popular choices, there are compelling reasons why we lean toward platinum and advise clients to choose this precious metal. Explore the unique characteristics and benefits that make platinum jewelry, including platinum engagement rings, the superior choice for crafting your most treasured heirlooms.
DURABILITY OF PLATINUM
Platinum is renowned for its exceptional durability and longevity. Unlike white gold, which is a mix of gold and other metals, platinum is a naturally white metal that doesn't tarnish or fade over time. Choosing platinum for your jewelry, including platinum engagement rings, ensures they will stand the test of time, making them heirlooms that can be passed down through generations.
Platinum is denser and heavier than white gold. This characteristic imparts a substantial and luxurious feel to platinum jewelry, including engagement rings. When you hold a platinum piece, especially an engagement ring, you can immediately sense its quality and craftsmanship.
The strength and stability of platinum make it an ideal choice for setting precious gemstones, especially diamonds, in your engagement ring. Its secure grip ensures the safety of your valuable stones, reducing the risk of loss. We prefer setting pavé diamonds in platinum to ensure they stay in place.
PURITY OF PLATINUM
Platinum is one of the purest metals used in jewelry crafting. Its purity level, typically 95% or higher, means that your platinum jewelry, including engagement rings, won't have any impurities or discoloration. This purity lends an incomparable brilliance to platinum pieces, enhancing the sparkle of gemstones and diamonds.
Over time, white gold may require rhodium plating to maintain its original appearance. Platinum, however, maintains its natural luster and won't need frequent re-plating. This means less maintenance and peace of mind knowing your platinum jewelry will stay in its beautiful, original condition for years to come.
BEAUTIFUL APPEARANCE OF PLATINUM
Platinum develops a unique patina as it ages, adding character to your jewelry, including your engagement ring. This natural aging process is often cherished by owners, giving platinum pieces a distinct and personal touch.
Platinum is often associated with luxury and prestige. Choosing platinum jewelry, especially platinum engagement rings, reflects your impeccable taste and discerning style. It's a timeless choice that complements any fashion and occasion.
In the world of fine jewelry, the choice between platinum and white gold is a decision that should not be taken lightly. When it comes to crafting exceptional jewelry and engagement rings, platinum shines as a symbol of enduring beauty, quality, and sophistication. When you invest in platinum jewelry, including platinum engagement rings, you're not just acquiring a piece of adornment, you're choosing a piece of art that will remain a cherished possession for generations to come.
