Frequently Asked Questions About Platinum

Platinum jewelry is renowned for its beauty, strength, and durability. As the purest metal in the world, platinum consists of 90-95% metal. It is very nearly pure! Pure platinum is mined from deep in the Earth, transformed for jewelry use with a minimum of other ingredients, and used by the finest jewelers to make exquisite pieces.

Platinum is the best choice for any jewelry that carries large gemstones. It holds stones better than any other precious metal and it’s extremely durable. No one wants their engagement ring or wedding band to fall apart, so platinum’s stability is a major selling point.

One of the most valuable properties of platinum is that it is white. It is one of the most desired qualities in a metal. The whiter the metal, the more valuable it is. Platinum is whiter than white gold, which is only whiter by being plated with rhodium. White gold will need replating when it wears off, but platinum will never need plating.

Unlike white gold, platinum looks better with age. The metal's natural patina gets more beautiful with time, while white gold's glow fades with wear. Diamonds set in platinum have a beautiful glow. Unlike white gold, which can lose its whiteness with time, platinum will never need re-plating. Because of this, platinum keeps its whiteness for a long time and becomes even more beautiful.

Platinum is a naturally non-allergenic white metal that was first discovered in the 18th century. It’s also extremely dense and difficult to melt using traditional methods. This makes it non-corrosive, and it’s also non-reactive with air or liquids. It’s been recognized for its unusual properties since its discovery, and is a popular choice for jewelry, medical instruments, and automotive components.

One cubic foot of platinum weighs in at 1,330 pounds, making it 11% heavier than gold. This density has made it a favorite among those who appreciate the feel of a weightier piece of jewelry.

Platinum is one of the purest metals used in jewelry. It is much more durable than gold, and it contains a higher percentage of its own element. Gold is commonly alloyed with other metals to make it stronger. Pure gold is known as 24K, but it is too soft to wear in most jewelry.

White and yellow gold contain only 58.5% of actual gold. Platinum is naturally durable and malleable, so it can be shaped into beautiful jewelry. Platinum jewelry contains either 90% or 95% pure platinum.

Gold and platinum are two popular metals used in jewelry. Platinum is stronger and more durable, but gold is softer and more affordable. Neither metal is inherently better than the other as they each have their pros and cons. Platinum is less likely to bend or deform, but is less scratch resistant. Gold is easier to bend, scratch, or dent, but it's also a bit cheaper and comes in colors like yellow or rose gold.

Platinum is a rare, naturally white metal with several properties that make it an excellent choice for jewellery. One of its main advantages is its resistance to tarnish; this makes it ideal for diamonds and other gemstones.

White gold and platinum are similar, but not exactly the same. Over time, the rhodium plating on white gold begins to wear down, and the white color fades. If you replate it when the color fades, they go back to being nearly indistinguishable.

It’s rare that you come across a true professional like Mike. Choosing a jeweller was an easy decision for my husband, when the time came to design my engagement ring in November 2019. My husband worked closely with Mike to design my bespoke emerald cut engagement ring, and then 18 months later, I had the pleasure, when it came to our wedding bands. The showroom is warm and welcoming – just like the family that works there, and we instantly felt comfortable, which made it easy for us to discuss our ideas openly and honestly. Mike’s knowledge and experience coupled with his understanding of current trends, is how we were able to create elegant and truly timeless pieces. The process was such a memorable and positive experience and I would highly recommend Opal Diamond Factory to all. True professionals that are driven by passion and pride.

I had a great experience working with Mike and Opal Diamond Factory in creating my fiancé’s opal and diamond engagement ring. The whole process was enjoyable and seamless. First of all, together we found the exact opal I was after and then designed the ring around it. I couldn’t be more happier with the final outcome and cannot recommend Mike and his staff more highly. Thank you for creating something so special for both of us. We will be back to create our wedding bands.

My experience here was nothing short of perfection. When I first came in looking for an engagement ring, I wasn't sure what I wanted other than a few minor details like the colour of the metal and type of opal. This is where Mike's knowledge and skill really helped me. While he was showing me the different styles and shapes of the rings, he was very polite and respectful with what I was trying to achieve. But I was still completely lost on the shape of the ring, as nothing really stood out. That was, until Mike pulled out his phone and showed me a concept he had designed, and I was completely convinced that it was the one. It took a few weeks for the ring to be completed, and I would be lying if I said I wasn't worried that I had made a horrible mistake by building an engagement ring without seeing an example or anything even similar before. But all my doubts went away when I laid eyes on the finished product. Thank you Mike and the ODF team, everyone who has seen it has fallen in love with it, especially my now fiance.

Great communication, listened and was exceptionally helpful. Not pushy in the slightest. Made the process a breeze and was always happy to communicate. Didn't feel silly when asking questions. Would thoroughly recommend and use again.

I recently purchased the beautiful 'initial' necklace in gold, it is gorgeous, so dainty and sparkly. I couldn't recommend Mike and the wonderful team at ODF enough. The necklace arrived wrapped with care and it is perfect! A lovely family business that cares for their customers which is important to me. Thank you Mike.

Couldn't recommend Opal Diamond Factory enough. Mike was extremely helpful in assisting with the design for the perfect custom engagement ring for my fiance. This was all made so easy even though we are in completely different states - all without needing a single phone call. It didn't even matter that I had a million questions, Mike was very accommodating and went above and beyond to answer all my queries and requests. It was honestly an enjoyable experience. The selection of opals they have is absolutely beautiful. Thanks again for the amazing service and outstanding ring!!

Mike helped my husband pick out my beautiful engagement ring diamond and design my ring style, whilst delivering on fantastic service and helpful advice. We also went back to Mike for my matching wedding band and my husbands wedding band too. Super friendly service and great after sales support on our rings. Would 100% recommend Mike and the ODF team!
