Is a Platinum Ring Right for You?

Even if you have a pretty well-versed knowledge of jewelry, there’s a good chance you might be forgetting about one of the major metals in the game: Platinum. Golds get ALL the love, but platinum is spectacular, too. In fact, our friends at ever&ever® say that if you can remember only one thing about the precious metal, you should remember this: That a ring made from platinum is rare, strong, and pure. And your love is like that, so why shouldn’t your ring be, too? It’s been a while since we’ve done a quiz, so we figured it’d be fun to put one together for the soon-to-be-engaged crew, among you!

Review these five questions and select the response that most applies to you.

And remember, this is simply for entertainment purposes! If it feels right, and it makes you rethink what you want for your ring, then so be it — but we’re not trying to pigeonhole anyone — just want to make that clear!

So… how about that OG factor with your ring?

The more unique and OOAK my ring is, the better

I like what’s trending, tbh

If you said you were a trend-forward, white metals purist with a flexible, no-holds-barred type of budget, sensitive skin, and no qualms with cleaning and routine maintenance to keep your ring in great shape, then you’d be a serious candidate for a platinum ring. P.S. The first question could actually point to platinum with either response, because although the metal is much rarer than gold (thus unique, in that way), it’s also always on ‘most popular’ lists for engagement rings. Platinum just oozes elegance, and elegance can lean trendy or timeless.

According to ever&ever:

  • Platinum is naturally white
  • Platinum will never fade or change color over time
  • Platinum is naturally hypoallergenic, has a weighty feel, and holds diamonds and gemstones more securely than any other metal (which is huge, because platinum’s silver hue already makes a diamond appear more sparkly — with a more durable and resilient composition to hold the stone, it’s pretty much a double threat)
  • People appreciate platinum due to its strength and rarity, which makes its value long-lasting.
