FAQ's

Platinum rings are not only beautiful, but they are a great investment for the future due to their durability. They are not immune to wear-and-tear, platinum is softer than gold meaning it will scratch a little easier however platinum is more durable. A Platinum diamond engagement ring is a wonderful declaration of the ever-enduring nature of your love for your partner.

When choosing between metals for your engagement ring, you should take into consideration that platinum is generally costlier than gold, due to it being denser and therefore heavier. Compared to gold, the purity of platinum rings is much higher, with rings being made of 90-95% platinum, compared to a standard 14 carat gold ring containing around 58.5% gold. However it is not only the purity and weight that drives up the price but also the rarity, only 160 tonnes of platinum is mined each year, compared to 1500 tonnes of gold.

Due to platinum's strength, platinum rings generally connote themes of purity, durability and high-status. It is often chosen for engagement rings and wedding rings due to these associations. To really add to the message of purity, consider a platinum diamond engagement ring.

Caring for your platinum ring is much like caring for jewellery made from other metals. Remove your jewellery before using harsh chemicals such as bleach, avoid gardening whilst wearing it and store it in a soft jewellery bag or jewellery box separate to other pieces. To make sure your ring never loses its shine you may want to consider taking it to a jeweller bi-anually for a professional cleaning.
