This is the rarest and most prized of all the precious metals. As it is in short supply and is difficult to mine, it carries a price premium. It truly is a luxurious metal and has several benefits. Platinum is hypoallergenic, so those who are sensitive to certain alloys will need not worry. It is extremely unlikely you will have an adverse skin reaction when wearing platinum. Another benefit of platinum is that it is durable. No precious metal is indestructible, which is important to note, but platinum’s inflexibility means it can withhold slight knocks without bending too much. It is a very dense metal, therefore weighing a significate percentage more than gold. Platinum is also naturally white and although over time the metal will scratch and dull down, it will not lose its white lustre. This makes platinum a desirable choice for those customers who are not keen on the upkeep necessary with white gold. The only maintenance platinum really needs is the occasional polish to remove any dullness caused by wear and tear. This is a complimentary service offered by us here at Diamond Quarter.
