Platinum Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Shopping Tips
Platinum Buying Tips
Shopping for platinum jewelry should be an experience as special as the metal itself. Here are our shopping tips for purchasing the piece of your dreams.
Choose Your Band Style
Do you know the difference between a milgrain, a beveled edge, a weave or a filigree? There are many different band styles to choose from!
Choose Your Band Finish
From polished to matte, there are several options for the band finish as well.
Look for the Hallmark
The hallmark identifies the type and purity of the metal used in the setting. Platinum jewelry in the US is typically hallmarked.
Choose Your Profile
You can choose:
Round: The exterior of the band had a rounded appearance. Also called "classic" or "domed."
Flat: Flat on both the interior and exteriors surfaces.
Comfort Fit: Curves to the finger, reducing rubbing and irritations (available in either round or flat profiles).
Choose Your Width
Standard widths are between 2mm and 6mm, but bands of up to 12mm can be ordered. Wider bands allow for more design details, including engraving.
