Platinum Jewelry is usually accompanied with diamonds or 18kt gold but can definitely hold its own by itself. Here are some examples of Platinum Jewelry we are highly familiar with.
Platinum is elegant to say the least and can last untarnished for years. It’s most common applications have been in the form of high end wedding rings, and custom jewelry. Watch makers such as Rolex, Breitling, and Patek Philippe are very fond of this metal as we see there limited edition watches frequently. Most platinum jewelry circulating in the United States is 90-95% pure platinum with small a amount of additives. Pure platinum much like 24kt gold is far too weak to make jewelry, so there must be additives to make it strong, however you need far less additives in platinum jewelry. This precious metal is near perfect because of its shine, durability and tarnish resistant characteristics, not to mention its hypoallergenic qualities. This precious metal is also extremely hard and does not ware or change colors easily as it holds its shine quit well. Bottom line this metal is the elite and we treat it as such when evaluating it at our Superior Exchange store.
Platinum jewelry in its truest form is highly expensive, in fact about 3 to 4 times the price of gold jewelry. Much of the platinum jewelry you will see is custom made and is used in many applications to hold diamonds and jewels because of its strength. We have seen this beautiful metal come threw our doors in the form of watches, chains, earrings and rings, pretty much anything you would see in gold. However it is rare in comparison to gold, silver and other precious metal jewelry. Because of the high value of this metal it has not been used in jewelry applications nearly as much as gold and silver. It is considered to be a high end product and step up from the truest form of gold. This seems to be changing though, as gold just recently has passed it in value. One may assume that this fine metal may now be used and distributed more inexpensively in the jewelry world. This will be a treat for every platinum lover as nothing can make diamonds POP like platinum. If you’re looking to buy, sell or need a fast easy Pawn on any platinum jewelry, feel free to stop by and get an evaluation from Superior Exchange. We really do pay more and sell lower than the other guy. Come see for yourself!
How to check
If you own platinum jewelry chances are you are aware that it is platinum however if you are not sure or are looking to buy used you can check for a stamp much like you would gold or silver. Platinum jewelry will be stamped as ( Platinum ) , ( Plat ) , or ( Pt ). In the same manner that 14kt is only 58.3% gold, platinum can be labeled as 850 pt, 900 pt, and 950 pt. This tells you how much of the piece is platinum and how much is made up of different metals. If it is labeled Platinum then it is usually 950 Pt or above. There are certain intricacies to this labeling process that get quite in-depth. If you are interested in educating yourself more you can visit the US Federal Trade Commission.
