Why You Need A Platinum Wedding Band
Welcome to The Clear Cut Classroom, where we take deep dives into all things diamonds and jewelry! Today we are sharing our love for platinum and why we recommend it for your wedding band. Platinum is a great metal consider because of its everyday wear properties and for its clean and always-in-style look!
Platinum is a popular metal for wedding and engagement bands, there are so many reasons to love it. Your wedding band is the complement to your e-ring and we recommend platinum for your pair.
Platinum needs no maintenance. A very popular choice in wedding bands is white gold and it's gorgeous. But over time for the maintenance of white gold's luster, it needs rhodium plating to keep the yellowing at bay. Platinum doesn't need that! It's an inherently white metal that keeps its precious shine over time. Less maintenance sounds like a great quality for wedding bands in our opinion.
We love platinum because you can wear it everyday and have it look like new. Platinum is a malleable metal which is PERFECT for diamonds to be set. This is a strong metal that can withstand any accidental bumps or nicks, which we love for anyone choosing a pave or eternity wedding band. It keeps the diamonds all in place and offers the best protection!
Platinum is popular for engagement rings. If we start to think ahead after engagement, we recommend going with platinum for metals used for both rings. Think about it! If we have a platinum e-ring and a white gold band, then the white gold band will experience and show its wear when its next to a platinum ring for contrast. It looks a little off when side by side. Platinum for your e-ring and wedding pair is perfect to keep your look cohesive and timeless.
It's a simple choice to have platinum be the bearer of your diamonds! Our wedding bands deserve some love too, choosing platinum would be a great choice for an everlasting sentiment.
