Platinum 950

Platinum is the perfect precious metal for making an engagement ring. It is a little harder than gold, and so more resilient. It is also hypo-allergenic so particularly suitable for those with more sensitive skin. Perhaps most importantly, Platinum rings look simply stunning, and the white colour is the perfect compliment to a sparkling white diamond.

What is Platinum?

Platinum is highly valuable, scarce and a major precious metal commodity. Being very white, it does not need to be rhodium plated like white gold does. Platinum is also a very dense and heavy metal, so Platinum Rings will feel heavier than an 18kt Gold Ring equivalent. Platinum is rarer than gold and therefore is a little more expensive. An Engagement Ring made in platinum, at today's prices, will often be more than $1,000 NZD more expensive than if it was made in white gold.

Other than jewellery, platinum is used in electrodes, electrical contacts, catalytic converters and dentistry equipment. Making it a highly sought after and rare metal.

Platinum vs. Gold

Platinum is a great choice as the precious metal to be used in an Engagement Ring, Diamond Ring, or Wedding Band. Platinum has the following properties that make it particularly suitable for making rings from.

  1. Platinum is hypo allergenic. The best choice for allergies and sensitive skin.
  2. Platinum is stronger and more durable than gold.
  3. Platinum has a lustrous, rich surface colour.
  4. Platinum requires less maintenance than gold.
  5. Platinum used in jewellery, unlike gold is used in almost pure form (approximately 95% pure, "Platinum 950").
