Stronger and rarer than gold, low maintenance and hypoallergenic, platinum is the perfect option to securely hold that sparkling diamond!
The most precious piece of jewellery a person will ever own is undoubtedly their engagement ring.
The anticipation of selecting a stunning diamond, or magnificent coloured gemstone is an exciting time.
An often forgotten and important element of the design process is metal selection. Many jewellers only offer gold as an option to make your ring.
Andrew Mazzone offers a selection of metals, with platinum being a firm favourite.
Andrew said “we endeavour to make beautiful rings that last a lifetime, and platinum is the strongest option to securely hold your diamonds.”
Requiring little maintenance, platinum is a striking choice to craft your special jewellery piece in. The end result has a luxurious weight.
Platinum Compared to Gold
While white gold and platinum both have a bright white colour, over time the rhodium plating on a white gold ring wears off and the ring can fade to a yellowish colour.
Being a naturally white metal, platinum does not require any rhodium plating. A polish every few years is all that’s needed to keep your jewellery sparkling.
Platinum makes an excellent option for clients with sensitive skin. As one of the purest metals used in jewellery with 95% platinum and only 5% other metals.
For comparison, 9ct gold contains 37.5% gold with 62.5% other metals.
18ct gold contains 75% gold and 25% other metals. It is these other metals that can cause skin irritations.
Andrew Mazzone also offers the option to create a stronger setting with gold.
This is achieved by creating a band in your favourite colour gold (rose or yellow) and setting the diamonds in platinum. This offers the look of the band you love and the ultimate security of your diamond.
