Why Choose Platinum For A Wedding Band

Platinum is a popular and certainly the most luxurious choice for jewelry. Why choose platinum for your wedding band? Here are a few reasons you should consider.

Reasons to Choose Platinum

There are so many great qualities. Here are the most popular selling points.

  • Platinum is hypoallergenic making it ideal for those with sensitive skin.
  • It is one of the strongest, longest lasting metals.
  • Platinum is one of the more resistant metals in terms of tarnish.
  • Platinum offers a beautiful luster that is almost white in appearance which is pleasing to the eye. This white luster is also helpful for diamond settings. When a ring uses yellow gold for the band, some of that color might be reflected into the diamond and diminish the brilliance. With platinum, the diamond stays clear and beautiful.
  • It doesn’t lose metal when scratched in the way other metals do. When other metals are scratched, they lose tiny deposits of the metal whereas a platinum metal ring will not lose the metal. The metal simply becomes displaced in the ring. This means that any scratches can be removed in a platinum ring with the use of a high-quality polish to restore the ring to its original state of beauty.
  • Platinum won’t turn green the way silver will over time. It keeps the white luster for years.
  • It won’t crack. Some metals are more vulnerable to cracks in their design, but platinum is too dense for that to be an issue.
  • Wedding bands made of platinum are resistant to damage caused by exposure to chemicals such as sulfuric and hydrochloric acids.
  • It is a metal that will hold its value for years to come. Platinum is rare and that rarity means that it will never lose value the way gold fluctuates.
  • Platinum bands will never lose their shape or wear away near the stone setting so there will be less need to have bands repaired.
  • This type of metal will always be popular because of the value. Platinum wedding bands will never go out of style or become outdated. When you choose a platinum band, you will never need to change it for a more modern ring.
