PLATINUM D SHAPE WEDDING BAND
Classic and simple platinum wedding band. This traditionally styled ring is crafted in a D shape profile with a domed exterior and slightly rounded interior. Minimal and timelessly elegant, this ring would be perfect teamed with an antique engagement ring or a minimal solitaire style ring. 2mm - 6mm available.
Platinum is a third heavier than 18k gold and is the most expensive metal used in making jewellery (other than the rhodium used in plating). To help comprehend the rarity of platinum, it was once suggested that if all the platinum in the world was poured into an Olympic swimming pool it would not even cover your ankles! In the 18th century, the rarity of platinum was brought to the attention of King Louis XV of France, who declared that it was the only metal fit for a king.
Platinum starts off shiny when new and develops a patina with normal wear. The patina is essentially composed of many tiny scratches on the metal and will give the metal a more matte appearance.
These bands are usually made to order, but my supplier does keep a small number in stock; please contact me for timescales. Maximum lead time 7 weeks. It'll be worth it!
