Sell Platinum Rings to the Best Platinum Buyer in Las Vegas & Henderson, NV
Platinum is a lustrous silvery-white luxury precious metal that comes with a high value. Because of its exquisite elegance and superior durability, it is considered one of the most luxurious precious metals today. Platinum’s rich and white luster will never fade or tarnish, unlike other white metals that can yellow or tarnish over time. It is also corrosion and discoloration-resistant due to the chlorine and other chemicals that are found in it.
Rings are one of the most popular applications for platinum. Its strength and white luster make it an excellent choice for a ring, whether as a setting for diamonds and gemstones or as the ring’s main feature. Because of the element’s long-lasting properties caused by its weight and density, platinum rings are considered a wise investment. Also, the precious stones in the platinum ring are held in place by this non-corrosive metal.
Julius Caesar Scaliger, an Italian-French physician, discovered platinum in 1557. Then, in 1590, Spanish conquistadors found this white metal in the Ecuadorian rivers. It was known as Platina, or little silver, because it was thought to be thrown back into the river to ripen into silver.
In 1912, white gold was “invented” in Pforzheim, Germany, as a platinum alternative. Platinum eventually was called the seventh element in 1751 after the properties of this discovery attracted the attention of a Swedish chemist named Scheffer. According to historical documents, he was the first person to melt platinum successfully.
While it is believed that the ancient Egyptians were the first to use this white metal in jewelry, platinum did not become widely known until around a century ago. Furthermore, despite extensive testing with the assistance of some South American Indians over 1000 years ago, news of new white metal with peculiar properties did not reach Europe until the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, particularly after the Spanish conquest of the New World.
Following that, Louis XVI of France declared platinum to be the only metal suitable for royalty because he was convinced of its unique properties. Since then, Kings, Queens, and Czars in late-nineteenth-century Europe and Russia have been adorning themselves with all platinum. The popularity of platinum then spread to the United States in the early 1900s, enthralling the American public. However, during World War II, the US government designated platinum as a strategic metal, prohibiting its use in jewelry. As a result, platinum was almost extinct by the end of World War II.
Value of Platinum Ring
The extent of maintenance and care you are willing to provide a platinum ring determines its worth. Platinum is a very low-maintenance metal, making it a great choice for some despite the initial price difference. A variety of factors influences the value of your platinum ring. The following are some of them:
Purity. The amount of actual platinum in your platinum ring is referred to as purity. If the percentage of platinum in your jewelry increases, the value of a platinum ring rises. Look for a marking on the piece to determine the purity of a platinum ring. Symbols on your platinum ring will represent the numbers 850, 900, 950, or 999. These are called hallmarks, and they signify the platinum’s purity. The platinum is purer if the amount is higher.
In addition to these numbers, check for the letters PLAT or PT to ensure your platinum isn’t silver or white gold. A house-shaped marking on the metal may also indicate the authenticity of your platinum ring.
Weight. Another important consideration is weight, mainly because platinum is sold by the ounce. It’s easy to figure out how much platinum you have. To get started, all you’ll need is a scale that can measure down to the tenth of a gram.
Spot price. Platinum is available for purchase on the open market, which means that supply and demand and other market factors affect the price of a platinum ring. Since it is bought and sold around the clock, seven days a week, the price fluctuates.
