Marriage is a union between spouses, generally entered into because the two people love one another. The wedding ring symbolises this union – the very shape of the ring representing eternity. It is little wonder that people spend a lot of money on their wedding rings and, as of late, have been deciding to spend that money on platinum wedding rings. This article will have a look at four reasons that engaged couples have been deciding to buy platinum rings:
The fundamental marriage values are mirrored by platinum wedding rings
The concept of unity and a strong bond between two people is echoed by platinum itself as a material – being largely non-reactive, the metal has a great resistance to corrosion, and as a result of this non-reactivity platinum is almost never found chemically combined to another element. The purity of the metal represents perfectly the sanctity of the union of marriage.
Platinum wedding rings are four times stronger than white gold
Basically – platinum can last longer than any other metal. Again, this is a trait (hopefully) shared with marriage – strength and indomitability. This long-lasting and durable symbol of love between two people is more than capable of being passed down between generations.
Platinum wedding rings require little amounts of maintenance
Due to the above point, platinum will largely go undamaged and will rarely show signs of wear. White gold and other materials can fade and yellow, meaning that they will require maintenance – further expense. Your ring will not have to be polished as often as other materials, and any prongs on the ring won’t wear down as quickly as on other materials.
Platinum wedding rings are a great investment
Having such an item being passed from generation to generation is a fantastic opportunity for your successors. And with the entire world’s supply of platinum capable of fitting into one averaged sized living room, it is a sound investment! So those are just a few reasons why platinum wedding rings are incredibly popular, aside from the obvious ones that are generally called upon!
