It's fair to say a platinum setting is the most common choice for celebrity engagement rings; after all, the trusted metal and high-quality durability exemplify luxury. But beyond the glitz factor, there are several solid reasons people choose platinum for their engagement and wedding rings. We decided to turn to the experts for more info: The jewelers at Blue Nile shared interesting insight and facts about platinum.
Scroll down to find out what they had to say.
"Because it is so dense and durable, platinum provides the best security to keep your diamonds and stones in place. Think of it as an investment to protect your investment."
"While other metals tarnish and need to be replated, platinum's natural white sheen will never fade or change color. It's super low-maintenance and loses very little metal, so everyday wear won’t dull it down."
"Blue Nile platinum is 95% pure, which means you're getting the real deal. That also means it's naturally hypoallergenic, making it ideal for people with sensitive skin. Also, we know how important it is for the center diamond to dazzle. Platinum won't reflect unwanted color into your diamond because it's pure white. Also, it will enhance the brilliance of your side stones—even colored gemstones—to make your ring even more gorgeous."
