Can platinum settings work with all diamond shapes? 2023 brides-to-be say Yes.

When shopping for an engagement ring, men tend to focus on the quality of the diamond, while women are much more interested in the overall style of the ring. They both are involved in picking the metal for the setting. Looking at last year’s real life proposal stories, I was happily surprised to see the diversity of platinum engagement rings purchased by just-engaged couples. Long gone are the days when everyone wanted the same diamond solitaire.
