6 Reasons to Celebrate Yourself with Platinum

In life, there are only so many special moments and each one is worth celebrating with something precious. From engagements and weddings to anniversaries and personal milestones, there are memorable occasions that are typically commemorated with jewelry — so why not treat this pivotal moment with something equally as meaningful? Platinum jewelry isn’t just the industry standard for bridal jewelry, but also for luxury fashion jewelry as well. Celebrate life’s precious moments with the world’s most rare and precious metal that you can cherish for years to come.

Buying a Home 

New beginnings come in many forms, and purchasing your first house (or building your dream home) is certainly an accomplishment worthy of a celebration. Nothing says “welcome home” like a platinum piece that serves as an everlasting reminder of that exciting time in your life. Much like the investment you make in your home, your platinum jewelry is an investment for yourself — all while symbolizing longevity and strength with the metal’s remarkable durability.

New Job or Promotion

You work well under pressure — shouldn’t you invest in jewelry that does that same? Landing a new job or earning a well-deserved promotion is the perfect occasion to gift yourself brand new jewelry — like these gorgeous diamond and platinum halo stud earrings by Ritani. With the brilliance and beauty of platinum’s natural white color, you’ll walk into your meetings, in person or virtual, with unwavering pride. 

Milestone Birthday

Platinum, much like people, gets better with age. Unlike other metals, platinum actually gets stronger over time. When gold is scratched, tiny bits can flake away, but platinum hardens each time it is scratched. Eventually, this results in a satiny finish on the surface of the jewelry known as the patina. The patina underscores platinum’s undeniable authenticity and is a badge of honor for jewelers and jewelry lovers alike. Invest in a platinum piece for one of your special birthdays and experience the beauty of the metal that keeps getting better — just like you. 


Birth of a Child or Grandchild

The birth of a new child or grandchild is an emotional and incredibly exciting season of life. Consider purchasing a platinum piece as a beautiful way to acknowledge a precious new life — either as a “push present” for yourself, or to commemorate your new grandchild. Customize your necklace, bracelet or ring with the new addition’s birthstone, or engrave the name to create a truly sentimental family heirloom. 

A New Chapter

Jewelry is deeply personal, which is why we believe it’s the best way to honor the pivotal moments in your life — whatever they may be. In life, we experience many chapters that make us who we are, and shape our futures. They all symbolize new beginnings, both big and small. Commemorate the personal achievements in your life like sobriety, moving to a new city, completing your student loan payments, or even the end of a relationship (work or personal) that no longer serves you. Platinum earrings, a necklace, or a bracelet can all be great conversation pieces to add to your jewelry box. These Platinum Born looks are timeless, elegant and bring diamond-like sparkle to your everyday life. Durable and strong, your platinum jewelry will withstand wherever your adventures take you next. 

Self Love

Much like marriage and committed relationships with others, self love and acceptance is a lifelong journey. In fact, the most important relationship you will ever have is the one you have with yourself. Give yourself a small yet meaningful reminder of just how special you are with a platinum bracelet, necklace or ring — like this heart shaped ring by James Allen. Platinum is thirty times more rare than gold, so what better way to symbolize your individuality and the special mark you make on the world around you?
