In the Know: Platinum

Prized for its rarity, pure platinum is one of the densest metal elements; over 1.5x more dense than 14K gold! 

Highly durable and long-wearing, platinum is characterized by its ductility, making it particularly useful for setting and securing stones.

Platinum is also hypoallergenic and perfectly suited for individuals with common metal allergies.

Most platinum jewelry is 90-95% pure platinum with the remainder made up of other platinum group metals such as iridium, ruthenium and palladium.

Unlike white gold, platinum is a purely white metal that does not tarnish and requires no plating.

For this reason, platinum is the optimal choice for those looking for a purely white metal that easily maintains its color and tone. 

Upon request, select Vale collection pieces and all bespoke orders can be custom made in platinum!
