Platinum is a luxurious metal and platinum wedding rings are becoming more popular, the reason for this is down to the fact that it is an aesthetically pleasing metal as well as being highly durable. This means that by choosing a platinum wedding ring you will have a piece of jewellery that is beautiful and thanks to its durability it will retain that same level of beauty far longer than a ring made from a softer metal.
Due to its scarcity, platinum is a highly prized and valuable metal; this can be interpreted in several ways when it is used to make a wedding ring. A couple choosing platinum wedding rings may see the rarity of the metal as a representation of the rarity of their love. It can be seen as a reflection of the degree to which the couple believe in the longevity of their relationship; as it will be a one off purchase it is worth the expense. Alternatively, the durable quality of the metal and its resistance to corrosion can be seen as a symbol that the couple will also be strong and resilient in their marriage.
There are more positive connotations for a wedding ring made of platinum when it comes to wedding anniversaries as well; platinum is the material which is traditionally linked to 70th wedding anniversaries. The non-corrosive and tarnish resistant properties of platinum mean that a platinum wedding ring will maintain its beautiful finish.
On a practical level, this means that a platinum wedding ring will be able to deal with the stresses placed on it if you do a manual job; this is a highly desirable quality if you do not wish to take your wedding ring off for work.
A platinum wedding ring has a great deal to offer no matter whether you are a true romantic looking for a ring with meaning, or if you are more practically minded and you want a ring which can stand up to the rigours of daily life. A platinum ring will allow you to combine style with practicality without feeling that you have to compromise in either area.
