If you’re going to go all the way with a piece of jewelry, make it platinum. The sparkling white metal is 30 times rarer than gold, won’t fade or tarnish, and is basically agreed-upon as the best of the best.
Platinum is what that gorgeous jewelry above is made out of, and it has a long and storied history of adorning some of the world’s most eminent individuals: Platinum comprised the frame of Queen Elizabeth’s crown, for one. Doesn’t get much more high-class than that. Marilyn Monroe’s wedding ring from Joe DiMaggio was platinum, as was Jessica Simpson’s engagement band. Need more proof that platinum is the ultimate luxury? It’s the metal surrounding the Hope Diamond.
Pick platinum for your next big-ticket bauble, and you’ll shine and sparkle right along with the setting.
