About Platinum

Platinum is 30 times more rare than gold. Mined from deep within the Earth and transformed into jewellery with a minimum of other ingredients, platinum’s lustre, strength and durability are well known. Platinum is widely known for its ability to withstand daily wear without thinning. This noble metal, one of the strongest, natural materials on the planet, is also one of the longest-lasting. Platinum jewellery is almost entirely pure, at 95% purity even when it’s set with diamonds making platinum one of the finest metals available on the market today. Platinum is the natural choice for milestone jewellery, such as engagement rings and wedding bands, because it holds significant gemstones better than any other precious metal. Being 40% denser than gold, platinum holds diamonds better than any other precious metal. Platinum is extremely durable. And unlike other white metal, which retains their whiteness only by being plated with rhodium, platinum jewellery does not need to be plated
