The World of Platinum Wedding Bands
Platinum wedding bands have been used in millions of wedding ceremonies worldwide to express ever loving commitment. In jewelry fashion, platinum wedding bands represent the highest quality material available. Given its special properties and traditional value, platinum wedding bands are a great choice for men. Purchasing quality wedding band rings can be one of the most exciting aspects of the marriage process.
Platinum jewelry is considered most valuable for substantial reasons. Platinum is a grayish-white, extremely rare, precious metal. Platinum is some 30 times rarer than gold, in fact. It takes 10 tons of platinum to produce one ounce of usable material, in a process that can take over 5 months. Because of the relative rarity, the price of platinum wedding bands can be two to three time more expensive than a typical gold wedding band. Platinum wedding bands are particularly dense and heavy, usually twice as heavy as gold, making them stronger than most other rings, made with other metals. As a result, platinum diamond wedding rings are very prevalent. The diamonds are firmly secured by the ideally durable nature of platinum and tend to survive many years of wear and tear. Platinum is usually between 90-95% pure, as compared to 14K gold, which is 57% pure. Check your platinum wedding band for an authentication stamp verifying its pureness level. Platinum wedding bands, consequently, are naturally hypoallergenic.
Quality Platinum Wedding Band Rings
When platinum wedding bands are scratched, the resulting consequence is different than you might realize. Most gold wedding bands will lose a piece of gold and, in turn, lose volume. Platinum wedding bands, on the other hand, are so pliable that when scratched, the platinum is simply displaced, losing practically zero volume, making your platinum wedding band ideal for the long term. The pliability of platinum is made clear in a striking analogy. One gram of platinum, stretched thin, could make a metal wire one mile long. Jewelers are able to create unique mesh and wire jewelry that could not be made with other materials. In general, platinum, is corrosion resistant. Used in various industries, ranging from the medical field to aerospace, platinum is a highly desirable commodity.
