Platinum Jewellery by Forum Jewellers
Platinum jewellery isn’t just beautiful to look at, it is also beautiful to touch. With a silky polished surface and weighing almost half as much again as 18 carat gold, it conveys a real feeling of value, beauty and quality. Although platinum jewellery is becoming more and more popular, it is still the exception and is worn by exceptional people.
Nothing sets off a diamond, or any precious stone, quite like platinum. Its pure white lustre ideally complements the colour and brilliance of your gem. Its unmatched strength and durability holds it gently yet with absolute security ensuring your diamond truly is “forever”.
Hallmarks of Platinum
Gold is rare, but platinum is twenty times rarer. To produce one platinum ring, more than a ton of ore must be mined. Today many platinum jewellery designs are accented with 18 carat gold – the gold contrasting beautifully with platinum’s pure white colour to create a sophisticated, versatile and fashionable look.
850 is 85% pure platinum
900 is 90% pure platinum
950 is 95% pure platinum
999 is 99% pure platinum
Pure, white and eternal, platinum is the perfect choice for a wedding ring. In the UK, platinum jewellery contains 95% pure platinum. By comparison, 18-carat gold only contains 75% pure gold. Platinum never tarnishes nor loses its deep colour and will not wear thin like some gold rings.
And remember – the wedding dress will only be worn once, the flowers and cake last only one day. Your rings will be a reminder of your wedding day, every day for the rest of your lives. Make sure they reflect the joy of it.
