|Which metal is better for you?|
|Most consumers hear so much about the advantages of Platinum, but it’s not for everyone. If you buy a delicate ring and have an active lifestyle, your ring may bend easily if it’s Platinum. Also, Platinum is more expensive that White Gold.|
Below is a list of benefits of one metal vs. the other:
Platinum is 90%-95% pure (we use only 95% pure Platinum): 18k gold is 75% pure, 14k gold is 58.5% pure.
You get more pure metal for your money
Platinum is naturally white. White gold is not- it has a Rhodium plating applied to be fully white, which can fade or change color.
You won’t have to have it Rhodium plated again like you would with White Gold.
Platinum is hypoallergenic
It doesn’t affect sensitive skin
Platinum is 35 times more rare than gold
You will have something not everyone can possess.
There are only two sources of platinum in the world, and it takes 10 tons of ore to produce one ounce of metal.
You will be wearing a very rare symbol of love.
Platinum loses little metal to everyday wear. Gold wears down over time.
You won’t have to re-prong on re-shank the ring for a longer time than gold.
Because Platinum doesn’t wear down easily, it holds gems more securely than any other metal
You don’t have to worry about losing your diamond
Platinum is very dense
It feels significant and permanent to wear.
