More about Platinum
1.What is platinum?
Platinum (Pt) is a naturally occurring, precious, white metal. Two billion years ago, a huge meteorite hit the earth and created this precious metal. Platinum has shone brightly in human history from as far back as 700 BC. Since then, for more than 2,000 years, it has been considered the most valuable metal, one highly sought after by royalty.
Pure - Platinum is naturally white, giving platinum jewellery a unique look. Due to its stable nature, platinum jewellery maintains a pure white lustre even when worn every day.
Rare - Platinum is 30 times rarer than gold. It is only mined in a few places in the world. If all the platinum in the world were melted and poured into an Olympic-sized pool, the platinum would barely reach your ankles. Gold, however, would fill three pools.
Only about 3 grams of platinum can be extracted from 1 tonne of platinum ore.
Three grams are only equivalent to the weight of a small platinum ring. And it takes about eight weeks with a lot of energy to extract that much platinum.
Eternal - Platinum's durability and resistance mean your jewellery will last a lifetime. It will remain shiny throughout. Even when coming in contact with common acidic substances such as sulphur in hot springs, bleach, chlorine in swimming pools, or sweat, it will not be affected. You can thus wear platinum jewellery any time anywhere without any concerns.
2.Platinum and diamond are a perfect match
• Platinum can hold a diamond securely due to its integral resilience and ductile quality.
• Platinum is durable, and its high density and superior strength give a diamond more substantial protection.
• The natural white colour of platinum enhances the light of a diamond.
• Exchanging eternal platinum rings symbolises the exchange of mutual vows for a lifetime.
• Platinum and diamond are the perfect match to attest to a couple’s never-fading commitment.

How do I know if a piece of jewellery is made of genuine platinum?
The easiest way is to ensure that the jewellery you bought carries the Pt or “鉑” mark. This mark is like the identity card of platinum. Only jewellery pieces with Pt marks are genuine platinum jewellery pieces. According to Chinese national standards, each piece of platinum jewellery must carry a Pt mark indicating purity information. For instance, Pt900 or “鉑900” signifies a purity of 900‰, while “足鉑” indicates a purity of more than 990‰.
