If you're wanting a luxurious feel, then it doesn't get much more high quality than a platinum Australian opal engagement ring. Think of it this way: usually credit card companies have different rewards levels for customers. Platinum is almost always the hardest and most prestigious level to get to.
Platinum is one of the rarest and most durable metals. It looks almost identical to white gold but has many different properties.
Jewelers working with platinum have to have years ofexperience and skill. It is not very malleable and is difficult to shape so the jeweller has to work quickly and efficiently. The pressure is really on for us as jewellers to work fast and get it right.
With all these characteristics comes a higher price point. A platinum ring will be almost double the cost of a similar looking gold counterpart, because you're paying for the intense labour that was put into designing and crafting the piece. But if your partner is someone who enjoys the finer things in life, or is after a metal that requires little maintenance, you absolutely can't go wrong with a platinum setting for an Australian opal engagement ring.
