Platinum is an extremely rare metal, even rarer than gold. It has only been found in select locations across the planet. Platinum is a strong, dense metal, which allows it to be used in many different ways.
Despite its strength, platinum is a very supple, workable material, making intricate designs and details far easier to achieve than with gold. Since platinum jewelry contains very little alloy, it is a good choice for those who are sensitive to metals.
Platinum jewelry is made from very pure platinum and requires very little alloy to be combined with it in order to make platinum jewelry.
