Platinum in Your Future?

Plain platinum wedding bandI do hope so. Platinum is strong, does not tarnish (however, develops a distinct patina), and doesn’t turn yellow as white gold does. In fact, when used in jewelry, platinum is 95% pure (unlike 18K gold, which is 75% pure), and that is why platinum does not fade or change color. Platinum is certainly a star among the precious metals used in jewelry today.

Since it was first used to create practical objects for the court of Louis XVI in the 1780s, the most remarkable jewelry were later made using platinum by Cartier, Tiffany, Faberge’, and many other jewelers.  Platinum is here to stay and so is your jewelry made out of one of the most rare and durable metals.
