Everyone wants platinum jewelry.
Platinum is the best metal!
I have included the following information about Platinum.
Q. Why should I buy Platinum rather than white gold? Don't they look identical?
A. White gold is simply an alloy of yellow gold. It has neither the strength nor the durability of platinum, or its pure bright luster. Platinum jewelry contains much more precious metal than an identical piece of jewelry in gold.
Q. Why is platinum more expensive than gold?
A. First, its rarer and more difficult to extract. Second, It's purer: a piece of platinum jewelry contains 95% pure platinum. Gold jewelry contains much less precious metal. Third, platinum is extremely dense and a piece of platinum weights much more than gold. Finally, working with platinum requires a high level of skill that only specialist craftsmen possess.
Q. Is platinum fashionable? How do I coordinate it with my gold jewelry wardrobe?
A. Platinum is the metal of the moment. To combine it with yellow gold, mix and match. Two-tone jewelry is very much in vogue and the two metals complement each other perfectly.
Q. Is platinum durable and safe?
A. Yes! It's hypoallergenic and can be worn intensively without losing its luster. Plus, diamonds and precious stones are safer set in platinum because the metal is so strong.
