We offer a wide range of men's and women’s platinum wedding rings, in a variety of different styles for couples to choose from. If you want to create a lasting impression on your partner, then a platinum wedding band is the perfect way to show your eternal love for them.
Considering buying a pair of wedding rings soon? We’ve put together a guide to help you learn more about platinum wedding bands.
What is Platinum?
Platinum is a silver-toned metal that’s considered among the rarest precious metals in the world. The metal is predominantly mined in South Africa and is renowned for its scarcity as only a few hundred tonnes of platinum are mined every year.
Like gold jewellery, platinum must be mixed in with an alloy as the metal itself is too soft to withstand daily wear and tear. When it comes to the usual structure of platinum, it’s comprised of either 95% platinum and 5% cobalt or palladium or 90% platinum and 10% other metals.
Is Platinum Good for Wedding Rings?
Yes. Unlike other ring metals, platinum is an excellent choice for a wedding ring due to its durability and the band requiring minimal maintenance.
Over time, a platinum ring will maintain the same silver colour as you first bought it. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about getting it replated due to wear and tear. It also means that the diamonds on your band won’t look yellow, as platinum’s white sheen enhances the diamond’s brilliance.
Can I Wear My Platinum Wedding Ring Every Day?
White gold and yellow rings are more vulnerable to wear and tear, which means that the scratches become noticeable on the band. Platinum’s natural durability makes it great for wearing a wedding ring every day.
How Much is a Platinum Wedding Ring?
Compared to other ring metals, such as white gold, yellow gold and rose gold, platinum wedding rings can be more costly. The combination of high demand mixed in with low supply means that platinum wedding bands are naturally more expensive.
