Why is Platinum the best precious metal for jewelry?

Platinum is know as the purest material


-Platinum is a kind of rare metals that is pure and hence color will not fade and change forever; therefore, the color of Platinum will not change even under extreme situation. 

-Platinum itself is a type of non-irritating metal naturally, thus the most ideal metal (Pt) for people who is suffering from skin allergy.

-Also, it is a very stable material that will not cause any negative effects to human body. 

-The color is very bright with elegant looking.

-The melting point is extremely high, and even higher than Gold and Sliver; as a result, jewelry that made from Platinum will not be destroyed and broken easily. So, very ideal to wear during daily activities, like playing sports

For its beauty and value, platinum has always been the ultimate expression of celebrations of all kinds: from weddings and anniversaries, to birthdays, holidays and other special occasions.

One of the rarest precious metals on earth, platinum is found in only a few locations in the world.

Platinum has a rich and noble history. It was first used by the ancient Egyptians about three thousand years ago. Eight hundred years later, the South American Incas worked with platinum. The first platinum jewelry in Europe appeared around the year 1780, at the court of Louis XVI of France.

It may surprise you that, although platinum has been around for centuries, it has only been used to fashion jewelry for less than two centuries. It is both an ancient and a young metal.



Whether you are choosing a ring, pin, bracelet, necklace or bridal jewelry, new and sophisticated designs have created a wide range of platinum jewelry. Many current platinum designs feature 18-karat gold accents. This combination of metals enhances the unique qualities of each.

Platinum jewelry usually contains 90% or 95% pure platinum, same as in ByEnzo, where we use PT 950 for all jewelry. If a piece of platinum jewelry is marked “iridplat,” then it generally contains 90% platinum and 10% iridium, a platinum group metal. If it is marked “plat,” then it is at least 95% platinum and another platinum group metal, most likely ruthenium. Read more about Hallmarking in ByEnzo

Why is the purity important to me? 

Platinum is hypoallergenic, resists tarnish, is one of the strongest precious metals in the world and is extremely durable.

Is platinum the same as white gold? 

No, it is quite different. During World War II, the U.S. government prohibited platinum’s use in all non-military applications, including jewelry. Because of strong consumer preference for platinum’s pure white luster, white gold was substituted in platinum’s absence. To create white gold, yellow gold is alloyed with nickel and zinc (and small amounts of copper and silver), thereby achieving a white metal look. Platinum has purity, strength, rarity, durability, and a natural rich, white color.

How should I care for and clean my jewelry? 

Platinum jewelry should be cleaned the same way you clean other fine jewelry. Use a good pre-packaged jewelry cleaner available from your local jeweler or have it professionally cleaned by your jeweler. As with all precious jewelry, store with care, not allowing pieces to touch or scratch each other.

Will platinum scratch? 

Signs of wear, including scratches, will inevitably appear in all precious metals, even with platinum. Due to platinum’s amazing durability and strength, however, there is little or no material loss when it is scratched.

Is platinum fashionable? 

How will it coordinate with my gold jewelry? Yes, platinum is fashionable! It is very fashionable to wear platinum jewelry with your other fine gold jewelry. Platinum jewelry often contains karat gold design accents, just as karat gold jewelry is sometimes accented with platinum. Platinum’s white color beautifully contrasts with yellow gold and adds versatility to your existing jewelry wardrobe.

Is platinum a good value? 

Yes! Platinum is an excellent value because of its inherent qualities: its purity, its strength, its durability and its rarity. When you purchase platinum jewelry, you are buying jewelry that is almost 100% pure. In the U.S., platinum jewelry is generally 90% or 95% pure platinum, with 5% or 10% alloy of a platinum group metal. By comparison,18 karat gold is 75% pure gold and 14 karat gold is 58% pure gold.

No other precious metal is as pure or bears all the qualities of platinum. Worn over a lifetime and passed on to future generations, platinum is the jewelry metal of choice.
