Spotlight: Platinum

Appropriately named the “only metal fit for Kings”, by King Louis XVI of France, platinum comes with Royal approval.

Platinum is denser and stronger than gold, so it is an excellent choice for jewellery. It requires very little maintenance, and due to its strength – is ideal for setting diamonds. It is also a hypo-allergenic metal making it suitable for all skin types. There is very little to no difference in colour between white gold and platinum.

Some of the world’s most famous gems, like the Hope diamonds, are set in Platinum.
