April Birthstone Platinum Jewelry: Diamond Wedding Band Edition
Those born in the month of April have the desirable diamond as their birthstone. Diamonds are so deeply-rooted as the unequivocal symbol of eternal love that since the discovery of the first large-scale diamond mine in the 1860s, their widespread use in engagement and wedding rings is so prolific that they outstrip that of all other gemstones combined.
Formed at high pressure and temperature to become the hardest natural material known to humankind, diamonds allude to endurance (in fact, the word “diamond” derives from the Greek “adámas,” meaning “inalterable” or “unbreakable”). Romantic connotations are powerful and indisputable when diamonds are set in secure, eternally white platinum.
Diamonds disperse white light; in other words, refraction separates visible wavelengths into a spectrum of pure colors… more commonly known as a rainbow. Not surprisingly, legend states that diamonds combine the best qualities of all gemstones to bestow the wearer with the ultimate in luck, health, happiness, and love. April babies sure hit the jackpot!
From Vivid Diamonds & Jewelry: the strength of platinum allows for a nearly-seamless wall of 14 emerald-cut diamonds—clocking in at just over 1 carat per diamond—to cover the entire surface of this eternity band. What a grand beginning to a lifetime of marital bliss!
By Elliot Gaskin, the Rock Edge ring provides textural interest in both the metal and gem; a clever way to ensure the diamond is protected and platinum is duly celebrated.
From A. Brandt + Son, this platinum Tiffany & Co. Etoile ring carries extra prestige of being a signed and hallmarked piece. The classic shape and whimsical scattering of diamonds make it right at home upon a male or female hand.
A fantastic alternative to the typical trilogy—or an exceptional statement for an eventful night out—this triple vine ring by Karen Karch has equal parts rocker attitude and raw allure.
Gypsy-set diamonds representing the past, present, and future or a glittering chain of hearts for undiminished affection, these A. Brandt + Son rings are brilliant options for the day you say “I do” or for the “I’m awesome!” self-purchase.
Since antiquity, wheat has symbolized prosperity and good fortune—making this Cathy Waterman band as auspicious as it is gorgeous.
For your eyes only: Marla Aaron has reincarnated the antique gimmel ring—puzzle-like components that interlock to create a complete jewel—in perpetual platinum. Engrave a song lyric to gift your darling as art of your personalized love story, or even a deliciously steamy sentiment (don’t worry, your secret’s safe with us!).
Sometimes all you need is French-cut diamonds (in alternating lengths) and platinum! Thank you, Single Stone, for this thoroughly swoon-worthy number.
In a rare larger size, an amazing scalloped silhouette offered by Addy’s Vintage; the ends of which look a bit like crescent moons. What a dreamy accompaniment to your heirloom platinum engagement ring!
Finally, a wink of true blue to go with the glimmer of diamonds. Beladora’s Art Deco toi et moi would be an excellent choice for someone who has an unusually-shaped engagement ring and/or has chosen to wear the wedding band on the opposite hand. With all that real estate available on a new finger… be bold, be beautiful, #beplatinum.
Lashbrook’s handmade eternity design would make a most handsome partner, successfully bridging style and decade with color, heirloom craft, and presence. What better way to enjoy diamonds—a pure, practically indestructible marvel of nature—than with the timelessness, durability and lasting radiance of platinum!
