Why are Platinum Rings Superior?
Posted on March 29 2012
Platinum rings have become the most popular and sought after types of wedding jewelry. Platinum is more desirable when compared to gold for jewelry for many different reasons. Platinum wedding bands for men are more preferred because of the superior qualities of platinum.
Our platinum rings are created with platinum 950, which consists of 95% pure platinum and 5% iridium, which is another rare metal found in the platinum family. This means that platinum wedding bands for men are completely hypo-allergenic and are perfect for those that suffer from a nickel allergy. Platinum rings are also heavier than gold, which is preferred by both men and women.
Platinum wedding bands for men will also cost you less money over the years than white gold rings. White gold is a manmade substance of yellow gold combined with white alloys. This mixture is then rhodium-plated so that it achieves a bright white appearance. Platinum rings are pure white the entire way through and will never need to be rhodium-plated by a professional jeweler.
