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.
