Platinum is a heavy, malleable, ductile, precious, grey-white metal, is resistant to corrosion and occurs in some nickel and copper ores along with some native deposits.
At WeddingBands.com, we use 95% platinum (950 Platinum) alloyed with 5% ruthenium, iridium or cobalt to manufacture our wedding bands.
Platinum's wear and tarnish-resistance characteristics are well suited for making fine jewelry.
Platinum is more precious than gold. In the 18th century, platinum's rarity made King Louis XV of France declare it the only metal fit for a king.
Platinum does not oxidize in air at any temperature.
