An expression of integrity, platinum's purity endows it with a brilliant white lustre. Platinum is generally 95% pure, so platinum jewellery will not fade or tarnish. Platinum's unequaled durability, density and resistance to wear makes it the most secure, protective metal for settings, which means your jewellery will be protected for a lifetime of wear. As platinum is naturally silvery white in appearance, it does not require rhodium plating like white gold. Platinum is purer and rarer than white gold and it retains its whiteness better than white gold. Platinum does not wear away and holds precious stones securely. As it is an extremely hard metai it is an ideal setting for diamonds and gemstones. This does not stop it from scratching when worn as a ring, which will occur with normal wear and tear and like gold, it will eventually acquire its own surface patina.
