If you’ve decided to pop the question, you’ve already found the perfect partner and are now in search of the perfect ring. This ring will represent where your relationship is going, but also where it has been and how you got to where you are now. It can be a nerve-wracking situation because there’s a lot at stake. You want to pick something she’ll love, but may want something untraditional. Platinum engagement rings are the way to go.
You’re going to want something that is as secure as possible, and platinum is one of the most durable metals available. It is also a beautiful pure silver white color all way through, so it never needs plating. All jewelry needs routine maintenance to keep the stones secure and to keep it looking its best, but a well cared for platinum ring will last a lifetime.
Platinum engagement rings are highly customizable. You will want to consider your soon-to-be fiancé’s personal style. Whether she likes classic and clean, modern, or vintage, a platinum engagement ring can be made to suit her perfectly. Platinum is considered to be the premier jewelry metal and she deserves only the best.
Remember that her engagement ring is going to be on her finger from the moment you propose until death do you part. Durability is a crucial factor because rings worn every day take a lot of wear and tear.
Platinum engagement rings are designed to be worn every day. Any metal, platinum included, will scratch in the course of every day wear, but with platinum, that scratching results in a beautiful soft silver patina. Platinum is very resistant to abrasive wear which means that it will probably never need the shank or prongs replaced. If you buy platinum, you will have an heirloom piece that one of your grandchildren can wear one day.
