- Both men and women like to wear platinum.
- Platinum is rare, sustainable and therefore a little bit more expensive.
Looking for a timeless engagement ring? Or for an alternative to the classic yellow golden solitaire rings as wedding rings? Platinum rings are loved by both bride and groom. This beautiful precious metal that radiates pure luxury, can be fully shaped, adjusted or polished to your taste or can have a matt finish. Why choose a diamond ring in platinum? There are multiple reasons why!
The solitaire setting
Solitaire rings are rings set with only one stone. And it should be an eye-catcher! Here, the choice of alloy plays an important role. Which alloy do you prefer for solitaire rings? Engagement rings in white gold or platinum are still the most popular choices. A big advantage of platinum is of course its natural white hue. A timeless colour that makes the diamond of solitaire rings shine even more. But for wedding rings, too, platinum is often chosen.
For him and her
Both men and women like to wear platinum. In our extensive collection of wedding rings you will therefore find many different platinum designs. This precious metal is hard to bend and is because of its hardness ideal to set with diamonds. Does the bride prefer multiple diamonds? But the groom would rather have a solitaire ring? Everything is possible with platinum. In addition, this alloy can also easily be maintained. That is why there is still a lot of antique platinum jewellery in circulation. Possible scratches or other signs of age and wear in platinum rings are easily removed by polishing the ring or by using non-scratching platinum cloths. But often men think that the “worn” look that appears after a while gives an attractive masculine touch to the ring.
Sustainability and price
Please take into account that platinum is a precious metal. If you would put all the mined platinum in an Olympic swimming pool, it would barely reach your ankles. The rarity and high demand, therefore, cause platinum to be a bit more expensive than for example white gold. However, platinum is used for more applications than you likely expected. This precious metal is even processed in many mobile phones. But of course in small amounts.
You see: platinum is a sustainable choice for your engagement ring or wedding rings. Would you like to know more about this gorgeous precious metal or about other alloys for solitaire rings? Let yourself be inspired or contact the experts of BAUNAT.
