Can I order more than one platinum ring so I can try them for size or to compare and return the unwanted platinum ring back for a refund?

Whilst we appreciate a selection of rings may be nice to have we encourage customers not to order several to choose from because the vast majority of our rings are made to order. Purchasing several rings with the intention of returning all but one comes at a great expense to us which compromises our ability to offer you platinum rings at great prices.

I'm trying to place an order for a platinum ring but keep seeing a decline notice after I have completed the payment process.

Decline notices are provided by your credit/debit card issuer. They are not given by us or our payment service provider. In this situation we highly recommend customers contact their card issuer to question why a decline notice has been given. In most cases we have found the card issuer has a security block, of a specific value, in place to protect the card owner from credit card fraud. Most issuers will lift the block for the one transaction after they have been contacted by the card owner.

How long will my platinum ring order take to be delivered?

Each of our platinum engagement rings, wedding rings and eternity rings have their delivery times listed in their individual Technical Specifications. Please contact customer support if you require an order by a specified date. We will do our upmost to accommodate.

Should I be worried about buying online?

Not at all. Our website uses a secure ecommerce payment service provider - Stripe. Stripe handle transactions totalling billions of dollars every year for businesses around the world.

Why should I buy a platinum engagement ring, wedding ring or eternity ring from the Platinum Ring Company?

What are the qualities of a diamond?

The qualities of a diamond are Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat or commonly known as the 4c's

Colour - Most diamonds of gem quality vary in shade from colorless to yellow. Other colors occur in diamonds such as brown, orange, pink, blue, etc. The most intense of these shades are determined as "Fancy" colors.

Clarity - Diamond clarity is a term used to describe the absence or presence of flaws inside or on the surface of a diamond. A perfect stone with perfect clarity, or clearness, is rare, and most flaws that do exist in jewellery grade diamonds cannot be seen without looking at the gems through a jewellers loupe.

Cut - How a diamond has been cut, polished, and to what proportions and symmetry, are of utmost importance since these factors determine the life, brilliance and dispersion of the diamond. If these cutting factors fall below standard, the appearance of the diamond will be adversely affected.

Carat - The weight or size of a diamond is measured in carats (ct.). A carat is 0.2 grams and there are 100 points (or 200 milligrams) per carat

What is a GIA/IGI diamond certificate/report?

The GIA / IGI diamond certificate/report give's you the customer the confidence that the diamond you are buying is at the quality you want and more importantly paid for.

The GIA Diamond Grading Report has the assessment of a diamond’s 4C’s – color, clarity, cut, and carat weight – along with a plotted diagram of its clarity characteristics and a graphic representation of the diamond’s proportions. For standard round brilliant cut diamonds falling in the D-Z color range, the report also includes a GIA Cut grade.

The IGl Diamond Report is essentially a statement attesting to the authenticity of a diamond and provides a reliable and accurate report of its identity and grade based on an internationally recognised system. Each diamond is scientifically analysed by several gemologists who use their experience in combination with state-of-the-art equipment to produce an accurate description of the characteristics of the diamond and the quality of its cut. With its detailed information presented in understandable language, the different qualities of a diamond can be truly appreciated.

Does platinum scratch?

Believe it or not… platinum does scratch. All precious metals can scratch, and platinum is no exception. However, the scratch on platinum is merely a displacement of the metal and none of its volume is lost. Over time platinum develops a natural patina, which many people find just as attractive as a polished finish. See Caring for platinum for more details.

We can confirm it is to the best of our knowledge that all diamonds used in our rings have passed through the Kimberly process.
