Platinum is a silver-white precious metal that’s brilliant for jewellery making. It’s highly durable, resistant to tarnishing and corrosion, unreactive – meaning it doesn’t oxidise, and also malleable. It’s the ideal alternative to silver for jewellery. It is a little denser than gold and more than twice as dense as silver. This gives it strength and durability, making it an excellent accompaniment to diamonds or gemstones and a popular choice for engagement rings and other precious jewellery pieces.
