Platinum Jewelry Throughout History

Demand for platinum in China has grown throughout the years. Jewelers, young consumers, and wholesalers are drawn to simple and lightweight platinum jewelry. Generally, the high jewelry customization of platinum jewelry is more appealing to 30-40-year-old consumers.

In contrast, young consumers prefer simple designs to high jewelry. Due to the demand for platinum jewelry, the demand for suppliers also grew.

The platinum jewelry market in China is smaller than the gold jewelry sector. In fact, the lower market of platinum jewelry is a significant factor concerning the demand for platinum jewelry. As one of the largest markets for platinum jewelry, China manufactured over 60% of white metals in 2015. Jewelers in the country bought 1.561 million ounces of platinum in the same year.

What Makes Platinum Perfect for High Jewelry Customization

Platinum is mainly sought after to personalize haute couture jewelry for its unique characteristics. The classic color of platinum makes high jewelry pieces look luxurious and flexible for customization. Durability is one of the biggest factors of platinum in high jewelry personalization.

Compared to white gold, platinum is 20% and 60% denser than yellow gold metals. Bespoke platinum jewelry is also best for sensitive skin since it is hypoallergenic.

Platinum Jewelry Alloys and Quality Stamps

High jewelry platinum is made from pure platinum and alloys. Mixing platinum with other metals, known as the alloying process, enhances strength and durability ideal for haute couture jewelry. Regarding platinum quality, wholesalers or any manufacturer of high-jewelry platinum must disclose its purity. A fineness mark or quality stamp symbolizes the purity of platinum.

Perks of Using Platinum Crown

There are perks to using platinum as a gemstone crown on a bespoke ring. Platinum is wear-resistant as one of the more durable metals. The high density of platinum and excellent wear resistance protect gemstones on custom rings. With platinum, there is less maintenance, which means it is also a cost-effective metal for haute couture jewelry.

Platinum is the Best Choice!

Platinum also provides extra security for custom gemstones. Unlike other metals, platinum does not have metal memory; when a platinum prong is bent to set a stone, it stays in its place. Lastly, the most prominent perk of platinum is its color.


The natural white color of platinum does not need plating or replating, which is perfect for high jewelry personalization with the natural color of platinum. Did you find this article helpful? Share it with your friends and comment below to let us know your thoughts!
