Platinum Diamond Ring

Friday, December 8th, 2006

platinum diamond ringA platinum diamond ring can be more appealing than white gold as it is more sparky and shiner than white gold and sets off diamonds very well.

It is also stronger and less prone to being damaged as it is a harder and denser metal than white gold.

But it is more expensive and care needs to be taken to ensure that you get your moneys worth when you go out to purchase a platinum diamond ring.

Some points to keep in mind include, ensuring that you purchase from a reputable dealer and you select a ring that is the best you can afford.

Also to ensure that the platinum ring is really platinum and not white gold or plated gold.

The claw or prong setting for the diamond should be firm and not loose. Rings are worn continually more than any other jewelery and nothing is worse than losing a diamond out of an engagement ring because the setting is faulty and the diamond is not set properly.

The diamond should be of good quality and come with an independent appraisal or certificate describing the specific qualities of color, clarity, cut and carat weight.

The 4cs of diamonds should be well known and you can find a considerable amount of information about diamonds from the links on the left about the 4cs. I encourage you to study them very well so you understand as much as possible about diamonds.

Do ensure you check out several platinum diamond rings and do a good study and comparison. Try to check them out in natural light, not just the light in the jewelers.

The platinum diamond ring should be brilliant, sparkle and be exactly as you would want it to be in normal light which is what you would usually be in when wearing it.

Keeping a platinum diamond ring is easier than many other gems and precious metals. Both the platinum and the diamond are hardy substances and all it needs is a little soapy water and a tooth brush to get any grime and body oils and sweat that may accumulate. Then rinse well and dry completely before putting on again. Keeping diamond rings in separate compartments when storing is advisable as diamond can easily scratch other metals and even other gemstones.

Keeping in mind the above will help when it comes to choosing the platinum diamond ring you are going to wear for many years to come.
