Platinum Wedding Rings: Bizarre Stories

Nice Day for a White Wedding

If you’ve ever watched a wedding movie you just know that something is going to happen to the wedding ring. Disaster is always just around the corner it seems - somebody forgets the rings, loses the rings, or they fall down the gutter. Real life thankfully isn’t usually as dramatic as the movies. But you will be wearing your wedding ring for decades, which is why it is worth spending that little bit extra and investing in a platinum wedding ring.

Why invest in a platinum wedding ring?

White gold is alloyed with copper and silver along with small amounts of nickel and zinc to achieve a white look. As a result, it doesn't have the same purity, strength, durability, rarity or the natural white luminescence of platinum. Platinum weights 60% more than 14k gold, which makes a huge difference in its beauty and durability. If you’re going to buy a wedding ring, buy a platinum wedding ring.
