Platinum Wedding Rings

Platinum weddings rings

Engagement rings: check! Partner of your dreams: Check! The perfect wedding rings? Orla James!  Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life - and you should have the perfect wedding band to commemorate it. You need to opt for a ring style and a wedding ring that you will look at daily and feel the joy you did on your wedding day.  We offer a range of rings but a great ring is our platinum wedding ring! Platinum wedding bands are quickly bypassing other types of wedding rings in popularity and platinum wedding bands are a strong metal type that will be durable for decades while maintaining the rings shining and beautiful, lustrous appearance. 

Do you know much about platinum wedding rings!? Platinum rings were discovered back in the 18th century and are considered rare due to the scarcity of deposits around the world, increasing the value and price of the rings.  Platinum rings are made up of natural white metal, that reflects a similar style and looks to silver rings, but without the chance of tarnishing over time. In fact, platinum is considered more durable than both silver and gold. This means that platinum wedding bands will continue to maintain their stunning designs, classic shine and beauty - just like your special someone! If you intend to have diamond wedding bands or add a diamond set, this is all the more reason to opt for platinum wedding rings as the neutral shine compliments any diamonds and various stones wonderfully. 

One way we like to make couples feel extra special is through our complimentary engraving services. This allows you to add a personalized touch to your platinum wedding ring, and due to the strength of the metal, will not impact or tarnish the platinum at all.  If you don't happen to fall in love with a ring style available in our existing collection, we offer a "make your own" jewellery service, where couples can come to our jewellery shop in England and create their very own stunning designs and platinum rings that will be mailed securely in just 2-3 weeks.
