Platinum diamond rings outshine the competition time and time again when it comes to the UK’s favourite choice of engagement rings. As well as looking spectacular, the brilliant white luster of platinum has the added benefit of not fading or tarnish and acts almost as a mirror to reflect the sparkle and scintillation of the diamond. Add to this the fact that platinum is hypoallergenic and therefore suitable for those with sensitive skin, and you have a winning combination.

The history of platinum diamond solitaire engagement rings begins in earnest from the 1930′s. Massive promotion by the De Beers diamond company in America and the reduction in diamond prices from the beginning of the 20th century brought the diamond solitaire ring truly to the public attention. Masses flocked to purchase one to indicate their betrothal. The use of platinum in these engagement bands however became possible on a grander scale only in 1924 when large deposits were found in South Africa by Merensky and Rustenberg, giving a greater number of people access to this tough metal.

During the Art Deco period of the 1930′s, platinum jewellery really came to the fore and was highly desirable, examples of which are still in evidence today. Today platinum engagement rings are popular again and are experiencing a revival in the form of both classic and contemporary designs. While slightly more expensive then there white gold counterparts, they offer longevity and a steadfast setting like no other metal. For this reason, it is likely the trend will only continue to grow in platinum diamond engagement rings. UK supermodel and fashion icon Kate Moss treated her self to one not so long ago to show her commitment to rocker Jamie Hince…..and where Miss Moss treads, millions tend to follow.

It is not only for their physical attributes that these rings are loved though but for the characteristics they have come to exemplify. The platinum and diamonds marry together to form the perfect symbol of love as both are associated with strength and durability, as well as integrity, honesty and sincerity, traits that are vital for a good marriage. So in a platinum engagement ring you have the ultimate declaration of love and fidelity condensed into one perfectly formed little package.
