Top 7 Reasons to Go Platinum

Posted by Azure on May 15th, 2013

When you think about the love you share with your groom, how would you describe it? Do words like rare, pure, everlasting, strong, resilient, and enduring come to mind? Hopefully they do! And since your wedding bands are a symbol of your everlasting love, we think enduring platinum (the strongest metal around) is the only way to go.

Sure, a platinum band may cost you more, but it is well worth it as platinum is unique in so many ways. The investment you make up front will pay off in the long run, especially if you take advantage of this limited time offer from Blue Nile of 10% OFF select platinum wedding bands and jewelry!

Now are you ready to hear our top seven reasons to choose platinum for your wedding bands? Here they are:

1 – Naturally White to Compliment Your Diamond. Platinum is a naturally white metal, giving it an incredibly gorgeous luster that will accentuate the clarity and whiteness of your diamonds.

2 – Keeps Precious Stones Safe. If you’re envisioning a wedding band with a little extra sparkle, then you should know that platinum provides the ultimate safety clasp for precious diamonds and stones. With a platinum band, you won’t have to worry about accent diamonds coming loose.

3 – No Maintenance Required. Silver may tarnish and white gold needs to be re-plated over time. So if you choose non-platinum wedding bands, you’ll likely need a tune-up or upgrade after several years of wear and tear. Platinum, on the other hand, is as low-maintenance as can be, and will develop a deep lustrous patina over time.

4 – Has Superman Strength. Engagement rings and wedding bands get knocked around quite a bit. And no other metal can withstand bumps and bruises like platinum, thanks to its superior strength & durability. It loses very little metal to everyday wear so your platinum rings will stand the test of time.

5 – Plus A Sensitive Side. Platinum is hypoallergenic (the only metal that is), so even the most sensitive skin can get on swimmingly with a platinum ring.

6 – Rare and Pure Like Your Love. As one of the rarest precious metals on earth (often referred to as the “King of Metals)”, platinum can only be found in a few locations in the world. It’s also the purest metal (90-95% pure platinum as opposed to 75% pure like 18k gold), making it especially symbolic and deserving of your love.

7 – Enhances the Beauty of Your Engagement Ring Rock. Because platinum is pure white, it won’t reflect unwanted color into your engagement ring diamond. Platinum also enhances the brilliance of diamonds and precious stones, effectively amping up your overall bling factor.

So there you have it! Seven smart reasons to buck up today for platinum wedding bands that will truly last a lifetime.
