Platinum is a chemical element with a name derived from the Spanish term ‘platina del Pinto’, which translates to "little silver of the Pinto River."
This precious metal is dense, malleable, ductile, and has a bright silver colour. Platinum is one of the rarest elements in the Earth's crust, and therefore one of the most expensive precious metals available. The metal is also highly durable, making it excellent for jewellery you want to last long term.
Platinum jewellery has a modern and luxurious appeal due to the grey-white colour. If you're looking for an icy sparkle and have the money to spend, a platinum diamond engagement ring is perfect for you!
The ruby is a pink to blood-red coloured gemstone and a variety of the mineral corundum. Rubies are considered the gemstone of love, energy, passion and power.
Across the world, goldsmiths have adorned crowns, tiaras and other crown jewels with blood-red rubies since the stone is a symbol of protection and prosperity.
Aside from diamonds, rubies are the scarcest gemstones in existence and have always been very valuable. The deep red colour makes jewellery with rubies an excellent Christmas or anniversary gift.
Ultimately, people see the ruby's unique colour and sparkle as a symbol of love, making them perfect for an engagement ring. Set your ruby in yellow gold to get that royal look!
