Platinum is a very charming metal loved for its hypoallergenic properties and gorgeous silvery color. Its durability gives the metal the upper edge when compared with white gold or silver. Jewelry grade platinum generally contains 90% pure platinum, and as Damalys Diamond, we only provide high quality 95% pure platinum, which is also called Platinum 950.
Platinum is much denser than silver and gold. It is almost twice the weight. Platinum is also more resilient against tarnishes and wears. These factors make platinum a great metal for use in jewelry. Since lower purity platinum is sold under high grade very commonly, you should be careful when buying platinum jewelry and make sure that you make your purchase from a trusted vendor.
The name platinum comes from the Spanish word platina, which may be translated as little or small silver. Platinum was mentioned in old writings as the metal which no fire could melt. This was true considering that platinum has a much higher melting point than both silver and gold.
Platinum is a marvelous complement for high color grade diamonds. The platinum and diamond pair has become the go-to choice for engagement and wedding rings. If you have any questions about Platinum, you may always contact our customer service!
