Why Choose a Platinum Engagement Ring?

Naturally Cool Silver

Platinum is naturally cool-toned, making it fantastic to show off every sparkling facet of your diamond. Rather than tarnishing or wearing thin over time, it develops a beautiful velvety patina over the years. Some people actually prefer this softer appearance, but it can also be quickly polished to regain its bright shine!

Comfort is Key

Platinum is hypoallergenic, which makes it a great choice for wearers who have allergies or sensitive skin. It’s also slightly denser and heavier than white gold, rose gold, or yellow gold, which many wearers find feels more comfortable and secure on their finger.

A Ring That Lasts a Lifetime

Platinum is incredibly strong and durable, meaning not only is your ring susceptible to less wear and tear, but your stone will be more secure too, as the prongs holding your diamond are less likely to bend or break. Platinum engagement rings also need considerably less servicing over their lifetime than a similar gold band.


How do I clean a platinum engagement ring?

Platinum is a very low-maintenance metal choice, which means it’s easy to take care of at home over the years. Every six months, use warm water and regular washing-up liquid, along with a soft toothbrush, to gently clean your engagement ring and remove any oils, dirt, or debris.

Which is better, white gold or platinum engagement rings?

White gold vs. platinum is, ultimately, down to personal preference, which is why at Joshua James all of our rings are available in both white gold and platinum.

In general, platinum is more durable and less liable to tarnishing, scratches or dents over time than slightly softer 18ct gold. Platinum also has a cool, pure colour tone that complements the icy white of your diamonds, whereas white gold has a slightly creamier tone. We only use platinum 950, which means the metal will always be above 95% pure platinum, for the strongest, brightest base to your engagement ring.

How do I know the diamond in my platinum engagement ring is real?

Buying an engagement ring is a big investment both emotionally and financially, so you want to be sure you’re getting exactly what you’ve picked out. At Joshua James, all of our rings come with a diamond certificate. This verifies the diamond’s authenticity, characteristics and background so you can feel confident when you buy from us.

Can I get my ring resized if it doesn’t fit?

Yes, you can get your ring resized free with Joshua James’ ring resizing service. Even with the best efforts, getting someone’s ring size right is notoriously tricky! Our ring resizing service gives you peace of mind that even if it’s not perfect the first time, you’ll still have the right ring to say forever with.
