great debates.... platinum vs. gold
Posted 25 November 2009 - 10:09 AM
Ok, we are about to make the big e-ring purchase here in the next few weeks. I thought I would ask you what your thoughts were on a topic that has been bouncing around in my head for a while now... white gold vs. platinum.
I am a preschool teacher, so my initial thought was platinum...for strength and "ruggedness". My ring is very detailed, pave diamonds and all, and our jeweler, after talking wtih me about my concerns, suggested very strongly the white gold for the e-ring and bands. Of course I LOVED that the jeweler didn't try to upsell us, and genuinely listened to my concerns.
My main concerns: sparkle and pop of the diamonds, and I want the ring to look as good fifty years from now as it does the day he formally purposes
Obviously I will do all of the reccomended maintenence as well.
Thanks for your insights ladies!
In case the design of the ring helps, my e-ring will be Mark Schneiders "Cherish" (with a slight modification as we designed with Mark himself).

As for showing off the diamonds, I don't think you can do much better than platinum. And it will hold them more securely since it's stronger than wg.
Good luck and congratulations!

It is truly up to your own preference....but platinum has its issues just as white gold does.

the platium ring went dull pretty quick and wasn't as bright as the white gold. So from my experience i'd go for white gold.
also as far as upkeep goes, i had to get my platinum ring polished ALL THE TIME. my white gold ring, I only get that done when i go in for my 6 month warranty check ups.
