Platinum is considered one of four precious metals, along with silver, palladium and gold. However, platinum is the most expensive, the most prestigious and easily the most exclusive. It also happens to be the strongest of all metals used for jewelry. Platinum is a rare metal, with over 60 percent of all platinum production coming from South Africa.
While white gold looks very similar to platinum, over time the rhodium plating in white gold will wear off and fade to a yellowish tinge. Once you re-polish and re-plate the white gold ring, it will look white again. Platinum, which is naturally white, will not fade to yellow and has therefore become the premier metal of choice when it comes to engagement and wedding rings.
Moreover, platinum is the safest metal to wear for those who may have sensitive skin or known allergies. Platinum used for jewelry is comprised of 95% pure platinum and 5% iridium, and are therefore the most hypoallergenic rings and thus a lot less likely to be the cause of allergies.
Platinum jewelry can be cleaned in the same way as gold jewelry.
Most jewelry customers think all sapphires are blue, but in fact sapphires come in a rainbow of colors from white, black, brown, gray, violet, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, and intermediate hues. Some sapphires exhibit the phenomenon known as color change, most often going from blue in daylight or fluorescent lighting to purple under incandescent light.
Sapphire scores a 9 on Mohs scale, and thus has excellent toughness and does not break easily when struck. This makes it a great choice for rings subject to daily wear.
For centuries, sapphire has been associated with royalty and romance. The world’s most famous engagement ring is Kate Middleton’s and Princess Diana’s blue sapphire, the "Royal Blue" - a 12-carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire from Sri Lanka.
Sapphire is the birthstone of September, and is the gemstone of creative expression and inner peace and meditation. Traditionally, sapphire symbolizes nobility, truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. It has decorated the robes of royalty and clergy members for centuries. In ancient Greece and Rome, kings and queens were convinced that blue Sapphires protected their owners from envy and harm.
All of our rings are standard EU sizes. If you don’t know your EU size, you can visit a local jeweller and have them measure your finger or one of your rings to determine the correct ring size. If you are unable to do this, please feel free to use our options below.
