What metal should I choose?
Most women have a preference for the colour of ring they prefer and in many ways; this is a matter of taste and budget. 18 carat yellow gold has traditionally been the most popular option; however, nowadays many brides are choosing the purity, strength and lustre of platinum. Platinum's fine silvery white tones compliment & enhance the brilliance of diamonds. Try on both metals to get a feel for what makes you most comfortable.
Will platinum scratch?
All precious metals can scratch, and platinum is no exception. However, the scratch on platinum is merely a displacement of the metal and none of its volume is lost. Over time platinum develops a natural patina, which many people find just as attractive as a polished finish.
What is the difference between platinum and white gold?
  • Platinum is naturally white and remains so. White gold is created by adding whitening alloys to gold, and usually needs repeated rhodium plating.
  • The high purity of platinum jewellery makes it hypoallergenic, regardless of alloy. If alloyed with nickel, allergic reactions may occur with white gold.
  • With the same wear, platinum jewellery will maintain its integrity longer than white gold.
