Platinum: A Precious Commodity
Platinum is valued for its strength, durability, and white luster. In the U.S., platinum jewelry can be identified with the PT or PLAT mark, and the 950 or PT950 in Europe. While other white metals can tarnish or discolor over time, platinum does not.
In modern times, platinum has become one of the most popular choices for jewelry, and is used in settings with diamonds and other precious gemstones. It’s been used to showcase some of the most coveted jewels in the world, including the Hope Diamond. Platinum is considered to be hypoallergenic and ideal for those who have sensitive skin and want to wear jewelry. Because of its durability, platinum jewelry can be worn every day.
While platinum does not tarnish, it can scratch like other precious metals. To keep your platinum jewelry looking its best, professional polishing and cleanings will help. Platinum should be stored in boxes away from other pieces to avoid scratches. Platinum is considered the 70th wedding anniversary gift in England and 20th wedding anniversary gift in America. Platinum is also a very popular today in engagement ring and wedding ring settings.
