Reasons To Choose Custom Platinum Engagement Rings
When selecting an engagement ring for your beloved, it is crucial to determine the right kind of metal. This is particularly important when designing a custom engagement ring. Not only do you want to match your partner’s style and preference, but you also have to consider how her personal tastes will develop over time. For a lot of brides-to-be, the best choice of metal for their in engagement ring is actually platinum.
It is true that yellow gold is more common and traditional, and that rose gold finish continues to be quite popular these days. But then again, platinum engagement rings remains to be the top choice.
Still quite uncertain if platinum rings are right for you? Have a look at these reasons why you should opt for a custom platinum engagement ring:
I. It is one of the rarest metals on earth. As a matter of fact, platinum is even more exceptional than diamonds! It is actively quarried in the Ural Mountains of Colombia, Russia, Canada, and South Africa.
II. It is a “noble metal”, which means it’s very pure. Usually, around 95% of pure platinum is being used for the creation of fine jewellery. Moreover, platinum’s other remarkable qualities include being hypo-allergenic, which is favourable to those people who are allergic to silver or gold. Platinum is the perfect option for them.
III. Since it is a naturally white metal, platinum has a specific silver colour that is evocative of highly polished silver or white gold. This particular colour makes platinum rings a versatile piece of metal that works well with any ring setting.
IV. Aside from being extremely rare, platinum is also highly durable. Unlike gold which can thin out after years of usage, platinum rings won’t easily lose volume from polishing or scratches. Because of platinum’s sturdiness, it is therefore ideal for jewellery use such as wedding bands and engagement rings, as these type of jewellery are being used almost every day.
V. As one of the purest metals, platinum is one of the least reactive metals available to most jewellers. Because of this, platinum rings are not readily susceptible to heat damage, and it will not rust. That is why platinum is a remarkable choice for daily wear.
While other metal trends come and go, platinum has been a jewellery staple since the 17th century. Its classic combination of durability, beauty, and scarcity made platinum the perfect choice for custom engagement rings and wedding bands.
