Selling Platinum

Color and Purity

Platinum is naturally white – it comes out of the ground white. No plating is necessary. Platinum doesn't change colors – it develops a patina with wear, which can be buffed back to it's original shine if desired.

Care and Maintenance

Platinum requires the least amount of lifetime maintenance due to its durability and purity. Platinum can be cleaned at home with a jewelry cleaning solution but should be taken to a jeweler yearly for polishing and to check stones.

Heirloom

Platinum retains its weight even after polishing. It will weigh the same 50 years from now as it does today, making it heirloom quality.

Security

Platinum's great strength provides maximum security for a diamond. Regardless of the shank quality, choose a platinum head.

Wear

Platinum is nickel-free and hypoallergenic.
