Platinum is an amazing metal. It’s a rare precious metal that is fantastic to use for jewelry. It is a shiny pure white metal rather than white gold with is a mixture of alloy metals. Gold is inherently yellow and appears white when mixed with other alloys and treated with rhodium which usually fades over time. To me this can be a nuisance to rhodium while platinum keeps it’s white color and can be polished to remove the scratches.
Platinum looks like silver but it’s much heavier, harder, stronger and has resistance to fire. Platinum is a great white metal to be enjoyed for those looking for a white color for their jewelry.
