With a history dating back about 3,000 years ago, platinum was first used by Egyptians but didn’t find its way into jewelry until the year 1780 when Louis XVI of France declared it the only metal fit for kings. Today, platinum is one of the rarest precious metals available, existing in only a few locations across the globe. As one of the four precious metals along with gold, silver, and palladium, no other precious metal is as pure or has the long-lasting qualities of platinum, making it a quality choice for fine jewelry.

What Is Platinum?

Why Is Platinum Valuable?

Platinum is an extremely valuable metal, especially when used in jewelry. Some of the reasons for its value include the following:

  • Purity: Platinum has a high level of purity, which makes it hypoallergenic and ideal for those with sensitive skin. It also resists tarnishing. In the United States, platinum jewelry usually contains 85% to 95% pure platinum. By comparison, 18-karat gold is only 58.3% pure gold.
  • Rarity: In 2018, the world produced 860 million ounces of silver, 109 million ounces of gold, but only 6 million ounces of platinum. One of the reasons for its rarity is the difficulty it takes to obtain it. Experts state that 95% of platinum reserves rest within the earth’s crust in South Africa.
  • Strength: Platinum is one of the strongest, most enduring, and heaviest metals available. People who wear jewelry daily gravitate toward platinum since it exhibits minimal material loss, even after prolonged wear.
