Platinum is a precious metal that is coveted the world over. Its strength and renowned luster makes it truly stand apart. That’s why many choose a platinum wedding band to pair with their engagement ring, or platinum couples rings.
From elegantly traditional to sleek and modern, there are platinum wedding rings for every look and style. Discover twelve top styles that are sought after again and again. Or speak with a diamond expert to receive personalized guidance in choosing the platinum wedding band meant just for you.
What Is A Platinum Wedding Band?
A platinum wedding band is any style of band featuring platinum instead of 18k solid or 14k solid gold. The band can be solid platinum or can feature diamond accents.
Nearly all of VRAI’s wedding rings, and the entire engagement ring collection, is available in platinum.
Is Platinum A Good Metal For Wedding Bands?
Yes! Platinum is the ultimate expression of indulgence and is also known for its durability. These two factors combined mean that platinum is an ideal metal for a wedding band. Because of its durability and strength, you can rest assured that this important symbol will last a lifetime. And its famed luster and luxuriousness adds a special and unique touch to such a sentimental design.
Platinum is also the purest of all precious metals, which makes it the best choice for those with skin sensitivities.
Platinum Vs. Solid Gold Wedding Bands
Choosing a platinum or solid gold wedding band should be based entirely on personal preference and budget. Both styles of wedding ring are known for their beauty, craftsmanship, and high quality. While platinum is purer than 18k and 14k solid gold, the latter are still designed to last a lifetime and are appropriate for most individuals with skin sensitivities.
Those who choose yellow or rose gold bands over platinum do so based on their color preferences. These warmer hues are also better for pairing with diamonds a bit lower on the diamond color scale. Colorless or Near colorless diamonds are better highlighted in platinum or white gold settings.
Is Platinum Better Than White Gold?
Both platinum and white gold are excellent choices for a wedding band. But platinum is considered more precious than white gold. Platinum is also more durable than white gold, meaning it will be slightly less prone to scratching or scuffing. These factors make platinum more expensive than 18k white gold. So white gold, not platinum, is better for those with a more limited budget.
Platinum and white gold have a similar appearance, but platinum will have more luster and shine. Speak with a diamond expert for more personalized guidance before choosing between the two.
Diamond Platinum Wedding Rings
How do you make a platinum wedding ring even more indulgent? By adding an array of diamonds, of course. Platinum wedding rings featuring lab-grown diamonds range from subtle designs with pavé set diamonds, to bold and dramatic looks that feature an array of cuts and shapes. These styles are becoming more and more sought-after as a wedding ring, but are also popular for vow renewals or as an anniversary ring.
