Jewellery expert Sach Kukadia from 7879 shares the differences between platinum, gold and white gold rings. What is a platinum ring? Platinum is a naturally white metal that is both harder to find and more durable than gold. It's used in a much purer form than white gold, which is why it's also typically more expensive. The durability of platinum is one of the many reasons it's a popular choice for wedding rings. This is based primarily on the common belief that it is entirely scratch-proof. While this is technically true, it doesn't mean your ring will be completely free of blemishes throughout its lifetime.
