Platinum Wedding Bands Stand the Test of Time
Prestigious, elegant, durable, and fully customizable, platinum wedding bands offer the best of all worlds. Modern and traditional grooms agree, when it comes to platinum, no other metal compares. A precious metal, platinum wedding bands can be ultra-modern or timelessly traditional. Platinum jewelry holds its own at classy affairs, yet is rugged enough to support an active lifestyle.
How Platinum Compares to Other Metals
More rare than gold, platinum is a dense, precious greyish-white metal. It’s most commonly used in its purest form, as opposed to gold which consists of an alloy. A platinum men’s wedding band consists of about 95%-98% platinum, which is the reason it costs more than other precious metals such as gold and silver.
Platinum is medium in hardness and weight, so while you can feel it on your finger, it doesn’t carry the same heft as tungsten. It’s more durable than gold, but not quite as durable as tungsten.
Platinum is hypoallergenic, so it’s great for those with sensitive skin. The wedding bands can be resized - you don’t have to worry about growing out of your wedding ring with time! Platinum is not scratch proof, but adds a nice patina over time.
