Ratna Jyoti:: Platinum Education
The most appealing characteristic of platinum is its durability. Each time other metals are scratched or polished, a tiny bit of metal is lost. In fact eventually, prongs of white gold and yellow gold may wear down enough that you need to have them reinforced with more metal for safety.
But not with platinum. A scratch in platinum may leave a mark on the metal, but this metal is so strong that it will not readily chip or splinter. For that reason, we set all loose diamonds in safe, secure, platinum prongs.
While it is the strongest of jewelry metals, it can scratch and develop a patina of wear. Many people prefer this look, unique to platinum. But if you like the shine, a jeweler can polish your jewelry to bring back the original reflective finish. In the mean time, buffing with a soft cloth can give your jewelry renewed luster.
The majority of our platinum jewelry is 95 percent pure platinum combined with 5 percent iridium, palladium, ruthenium or other alloys. For guaranteed quality in platinum, look for the marks 950 Plat or Plat.
For beauty and durability, our platinum jewelry, like these platinum Love Knot earrings, is 95% pure platinum.
The platinum jewelry at Ratna Jyoti is made of fine quality jewelry grade platinum. Its cool white sheen makes platinum our most popular metal of choice for settings, as it accentuates the sparkle and brilliance of a diamond.
Soaking platinum in a mild solution of soap and warm water and gently scrubbing it with a soft-bristled brush is usually all that is required to maintain the metal s luster.

Using a mild solution of soap and warm water and gently scrubbing your jewelry with a soft-bristled brush is usually all that is required to maintain Palladium s natural beauty and luster.
Palladium, one of the rarest metals in the world, is a member of the Platinum Group Metals. These metals are also referred to as Noble Metals due to their superior ability to withstand corrosion and oxidation.
Palladium, which is listed on the Periodic Table of elements, is lighter in weight than its sister metal, Platinum.
A naturally white metal, Palladium is hypoallergenic, will not tarnish and remains white forever. Palladium is 95% pure when used in jewelry, is extremely durable and does not require alloy metals and/or plating for protection, which ensures that it will remain white as long as you own your jewelry.
