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.

I have done the research for you, so you can just go ahead and use ODF and not bother looking any further. Exceptional customer service, brilliantly talented and the kind of honesty in sales that is not regularly encountered. We could not be happier with our experience with Mike and will continue to use him in the future! Thank you, Mike!

From my very first experience at ODF as a child, going into the shop just to browse the beautiful gems with my Mum, they have been nothing short of amazing. I have since bought multiple pieces for my family, all custom designed by Mike. I have been over the moon with every single piece. Mike's eye for detail is spectacular and his craftsmanship is exquisite. My fiancé designed my engagement ring with Mike, going over every fine detail, I love my ring so much. I recommend ODF for all jewellery, whether it be a piece bought in store or a custom piece designed by yourself and mike, I assure you won't be disappointed.

If you are reading these reviews in the hopes of finding a dream piece of jewellery (especially an engagement ring) then your search is complete. Out of all the locations I went to searching for an engagement ring, this was head and shoulders above the rest. A daunting process was made not only easy but enjoyable by the lovely people at The Opal Diamond Factory. They are caring, helpful and above all know what they are talking about. The whole process was made easy by Mike; from the sizing to the style, the stone itself and overall design features, anything seemed possible. I cannot praise this man and his skill enough; the care he puts into understanding what you want the design to say and the jewellery itself is amazing. As for the jewellery itself, it is nothing short of breathtaking. His ability to frame the centerpiece stone while also making the band stand out is phenomenal. For me this involved engraving the engagement band to make it appear as though it was a branch supporting an opal. The detail he was able to achieve with this was amazing. Not only this, but the quality of the opal and the range of choices and styles available will mean that there will definitely be something that catches your eye as ‘the one’. If you are like I was and are searching the internet in the hopes of finding something special, then you have found the location you are looking for. Stop reading this and ring, email or go to the store, you will not be disappointed by the service, care or heart stopping potential that their jewellery has.

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.
