PLATINUM DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING: A PERFECT MATCH





By selecting a platinum diamond engagement ring, you’ve obviously done your homework. Platinum is an ideal metal for setting a diamond, because it shares the diamond’s native purity and strength. Whereas white gold is alloyed with less precious metals like silver or palladium, a platinum ring is virtually pure platinum, at least ninety-five percent. Platinum is also a much stronger metal than gold, which is considered a soft metal. The clean, crystalline beauty of any diamond will only be enhanced by this beautiful, glossy and heavy metal. A platinum diamond engagement ring is a work of art that will last more than a lifetime.





Other Metals
White gold is also usually coated with rhodium plating to make it appear whiter. White gold with rhodium plating appears to be grey in color. While rhodium is very durable it will wear away and your ring may appear to be tarnished. Most jewelers are able to re-plate white gold with rhodium at a reasonable price.

Not only is a platinum diamond engagement ring heavier than a gold ring, it will also cost more, almost twice as much due to the difference in price of the white metal, as compared to gold. Platinum is very durable and brilliant so as not to need rhodium coating.





Look Closely When Choosing Platinum
Looking at a platinum diamond engagement ring and a white gold ring, side-by-side, due to the rhodium coating on the white gold, it would be hard to see the difference. This is what causes the confusion between the two. The difference becomes more evident when the weight of the two is compared.

A person could wear a platinum diamond engagement ring along with a white gold wedding band and it would be extremely difficult to notice the difference. In addition to platinum diamond engagement rings, there are also men’s and women’s platinum wedding bands. By using platinum, you can even design your own engagement ring.

Many people appreciate the bright silver coloring of platinum instead of the gold and want the durability associated with the metal. While gold is considered a soft metal, when mixed with copper and zinc, as regular gold is, or with silver or palladium as white gold is, it is still not as strong and durable as platinum.

Since a ring is worn practically all of the time a platinum diamond engagement ring may last longer than one made of gold. Wearing a platinum diamond engagement ring and a platinum wedding band will provide years of brilliant wear.
