Platinum is known for its hardness, durability, rarity and it's naturally white sheen which never fades or changes colour. All of these properties make it perfect for use in engagement rings. It is often seen as the most premium metal option due to its long-lasting nature.
Diamonds are a classic choice for a reason, they are extremely durable - and are the hardest natural substance known to man, not to mention a few hundred million years old and spat out of a volcano! They also have an extremely high lustre, and reflect light in that unique diamond brilliance. These two materials are currently at an amazing price, so now is the time to invest in something beautiful.
