The reason that engagement and weddings rings are so special is that they are an investment in forever, right? They are likely the only jewelry that you will wear for the rest of your life, which is why choosing the right ring is so important! It’s not just diamond cut and quality that matters, but the metal you choose to set that diamond in! Platinum is the densest precious metal available meaning it’s the safest metal to secure your stone, and the current pricing situation has lessened the price disparity between platinum and white gold.

Unlike white gold, platinum is a naturally white metal, meaning it will never fade or change color, or need to be dipped or re-plated. It will look just as beautiful on your 50th wedding anniversary, and as an heirloom for generations to come as it does on the day you say “I do”. All of the finest jewelry houses (think Tiffany’s and Cartier!) exclusively set their engagement rings in platinum. Platinum’s pure color means that it won’t cast any color onto the diamonds or gemstones it holds, allowing the stones to shine brighter than in any other setting. Sparkly for a lifetime!

Because of the rise in the price of gold, there has not been a time in recent history when it was more affordable to purchase platinum. The price of gold per ounce has risen higher than that of platinum, meaning platinum rings are now more attainable than ever before.
