As beautiful and valuable as gold is, France’s King Louis XVI declared platinum to be “the only metal fit for kings.” He certainly had a point. This prestigious metal is twice as heavy as gold, extremely hard, and hypoallergenic, and it resists tarnish. After years of use, its bright white luster absorbs scratches that create a very attractive patina. While platinum has been used in jewelry and ornamentation for thousands of years, it was not until the 1920s that the technology was developed to work the metal conveniently. Up until that time, platinum’s high melting point made the metal difficult to manipulate. Now that platinum can be used in a relatively pure state, it is even more alluring. No other metal is as distinctive to own and wear as platinum. Its lustrous sheen and rare beauty are coveted worldwide.
