Platinum Rings Care Difference Between White Gold and Platinum and Choosing Gemstones with Platinum Jewellery

Finger ring 
Platinum, the most beautiful metal, I love this! The metal not only is strong and durable, but also tough as compared to other metals  in jewellery. It also heavy and weighs /density more than Gold. It looks like white Gold but must not be confused with this metal, as Gold is cheaper than Platinum.
Why we love platinum? it holds stones perfect;y and does not wear away, the shine luster remains same even after years. it is also very good for everyday wear and quiet comfortable, especially for sensitive skins. '
Platinum is the costliest metal and on the wish list of every woman! A true symbol of love, purity, rarity and uniqueness. I especially love finger rings with real diamonds studded as it brings out an ethereal beauty feel when I wear it!
Brands and Jewelry designers have Awesum collections of Platinum wedding bands and it is so beautiful, strength and purity, true symbolism for perfect matches and pairs! While you get to choose, from the designs in various price rages, they also mention free polishing services but have not tried this.

Both look same! Platinum and White Gold, but have a vast difference in Price! Visually you will see white gold more shinier and glossy as compared to pure Platinum jewellery. 
White gold is an alloy of gold and some other  metals. Remember it is Gold, yellow. and has to be bleached to get the colour , white gold. While Platinum is a naturally white metal. Though some metals are also added to make it strong, and this is mentioned in the certificate . So while if you look at the two, white gold will have a hint of yellowness as compared to Platinum that looks more of a matt grey.
Platinum being heavier than Gold comes to a higher price tag than Gold in the same weight. Being so strong, it requires a higher melting point hence also the making  charges for Platinum jewelry are more than with White Gold.
There are many gemstones that look great with platinum but I would not prefer to buy a ruby with platinum. Somehow rubies are fire energy and they do not go well with the soothing moon energy of Platinum. Emeralds also look great with platinum. Citrines and other stones also go along if chosen judiciously.
Only factor to consider, it gets scratched, so have to be careful in wearing daily wear finger rings, however there is no loss of metal. Ear rings are great and also give a carefree feel.  Avoid keeping Platinum with other jewellery, keep it in soft muslin cloth to avoid your precious jewelry getting abrased.
Always buy Platinum from reputed brands with certificate of Authenticity, we have not choice as for these white metals, it is the certificate of Authenticity that is the only value to measure its clarity and status!
Hope this helps!
All the Best from Rizwana!

What to look out for while purchasing Pure Diamonds Buying diamond jewellery Important Tips

What to look out for while purchasing Pure Diamonds Buying diamond jewellery Important Tips
Each genuine piece of jewellery, be it finger ring, earrings, pendant, necklace or loose diamond stones comes with a certificate. Never purchase a diamond , without this authenticity certificate, even from known sources , without this certificate. Buying a certified diamond stone  jewellery guarantees its authenticity and also while resale is beneficial to have this knowledge about the genuinity of the stone.
Each piece of Branded diamond stone jewellery made with diamonds or semi precious stones is one of a piece only and has its unique card of authenticity certificate. The certificate is given while purchasing the jewellery and it will have the details about the diamond clarity and cut, shape of the stone and the size along with the photograph of the piece of jewellery.
Your diamond stone jewellery will come with an authenticity certificate and this assures you the originality of the jewellery piece. Never purchase diamond stones, loose, or in jewellery,  without this certificate as there is no guarantee about the clarity, cut and genuineness of the stone you purchase. There are reputed gemmological institutes that assess the stones and then certify them with a certificate.
The diamonds are certified from gemmology institutes here and abroad. International Gemmological Institute India. DGLA another reputed gemological institution, Diamond & Gem Laboratories of America.
Some private institutes also certify the stones which I have no experience of.
There are our traditional jewelers who also bring up diamond stone jewellery but they only give their own shop bill and then the clarity or genuineness of the stone is on the reputation of the jeweller and your faith in them.
The private jewellers bring out costly diamonds and we also do not get a certificate with this piece of stones studded in gold making it difficult to assess the value of the diamonds. Yes they assure you that you can sell it or exchange it from anywhere, but this becomes a problem as you loose out on a higher percentage while exchanging it form any other jeweller. For the lay person they just look likes sparkling stones in white and we just cannot assess its vale or understand the price ranges.
Each certified diamond jewellery certificate has the details of the  jewellery piece with the  image photograph of the original piece you purchase. The certificate is a card which has details of the piece of diamond jewellery you buy. Each certification institute differs in this card but the details provided are according to certain criteria. Image, on one side you see details like certificate number.
Then there is shape, it be round solitaire, cushion, square, diamond shape, princess, marquise, etc. Then there are also some pieces with many small diamonds together, so the details will be printed on the certificate about the number of stones and each ones size in carats. Stones are measured in cents and carats.
Total weight of gold, platinum or silver, sterling silver or any metal is also written along with the carts, this is very important as diamond stone jewellery usually never comes in 24 Carat ranges and is mostly from 18 to 22 carats. Color of the metal is also mentioned, yellow, white gold, rhodium polish or any other polish over gold.
It is important to preserve this certificate of authenticity in case you need to sell, exchange, or make a higher bigger piece of jewellery purchase while giving this piece of diamond stone jewellery. The clarity and carats, cut on the diamond stone helps to bring out the sparkle and the more the sparkle, more the price! Thus bigger the single diamond stone higher the price!

What I look for while purchasing diamond Jewellery-
1) It is always advisable to buy from reputed certified jewelers who give a genuine certified certificate about the diamond clarity, cut and size, carats
2) Certified diamond stone  jewellery guarantees its authenticity and also while resale is beneficial to have this knowledge about the genuinity of the stone
3) One of a diamond jewellery piece only and has its unique card of authenticity certificate, no duplicates.
4) The private jewellers bring out costly diamonds and we also do not get a certificate with this piece of stones studded in gold jewellery, making it difficult to assess the actual value of the diamonds.
5)  Image,  you see details like certificate number, shape, it be round solitaire, cushion, square, diamond shape, princess, marquise, etc. Then there are also some pieces with many small diamonds assembled together, so the details will be printed on the certificate about the number of stones and each ones size in carats. Stones are measured in cents and carats.
6) Total weight of gold, platinum or silver, sterling silver or any metal is also written along with the carts, this is very important as diamond stone jewellery usually never comes in 24 Carat ranges and is mostly from 18 to 22 carats. Color of the metal is also mentioned, yellow, white gold, rhodium polish or any other polish over gold.
7) The clarity and carats, cut on the diamond stone helps to bring out the sparkle and the more the sparkle, more the price! Thus bigger the single diamond stone higher the price!
8) For the love of solitaires! Yes that big stone finger ring, comes with a much higher price! Gemstone jewellery designers have come up with a unique idea, I have one diamond finger ring, which has tiny diamonds studded together that look a complete whole, they look like a single big diamond! and what more comes for a quarter price than a big solitaire!
