A platinum engagement ring represents everlasting love. Platinum is a naturally occurring metal that is rare and durable. It is perfect for jewellery making because it is hypoallergenic and physically white. This metal perfectly represents your lasting love.

Platinum is becoming a very popular choice for engagement rings. Platinum is about 25 percent heavier than white gold and is noted for its durability. While platinum is an excellent choice, there are some potential disadvantages to its selection. Platinum costs a great deal more than white gold. It can, in fact, climb to as much as three to four times the price of gold.

Platinum is much stronger, heavier and more expensive than gold. Platinum won't tarnish, however it will scratch over time just like gold so it may need to be re-polished. Platinum is not only expensive due to its rarity, hardness and shine, it's also expensive because it takes an extremely skilled craftsman to work it.

Platinum is the top choice for celebrities and for those with very regal taste. Queen Elizabeth's regal 3-carat diamond engagement ring was set in platinum among five smaller stones. The antique diamonds were borrowed from a tiara belonging to the mother of her royal fiancee, Prince Phillip.

It could only be platinum for the most famous platinum blonde. Joe Dimaggio gave Marilyn Monroe a platinum eternity band set with thirty-six small baguette diamonds after their famous elopement.

Madonna, our favorite bejewelled eighties princess was known for oversized, gawdy costume jewellery. However, all grown up now, she was given an antique Edwardian three-stone diamond engagement ring with a decorative platinum band by her English film director husband Guy Ritchie.

Jennifer Lopez, the very famous pink diamond ring that Ben Affleck gave to Jennifer Lopez. While that relationship did not endure, the 6 carat pink diamond caused a buzz and is still a highly sought after replica. The glamorous pink diamond is set in a platinum band with three baguette white diamonds on each side.
Another blonde, Jessica Simpson, received a 4-carat engagement ring set in platinum. The centerpiece was an unusual pear-shape diamond with two side stones.

Platinum rings are available in many styles. You can have it in a solitaire setting, three ring setting, as well as bezel setting just to name a few; and many other settings are available in the market today. The center stone can vary from diamonds to your favorite gemstones or birthstones.

If you have decided to buy a designer platinum engagement ring, you need to be prepared. Platinum is the most expensive choice that you could make and you should be completely sure about your decision. The metal is heavier compared to all other metal bands and also would feel heavy on the finger.
