The Luxurious Beauty of Platinum
by Chavez Fine Jewelers
The luxurious beauty of Platinum Platinum, now one of the most popular elements in the making of jewelry, was originally considered an annoying side effect of panning for gold, as it was thought to be a form of silver. It wasn't until the 18th century, when science had improved, that it was understood that this was not, in fact silver, but one of the most precious and durable elements in the world.



The luxurious beauty of Platinum Once it was discovered how valuable and durable platinum truly is, it became a new source for jewelry. Platinum is not only one of the most valuable elements because of its scarcity, it is also one of the toughest and long lasting materials, rivaling most other materials used for jewelry. Like gold's karat rating system, platinum has a system to tell the consumer how much platinum is contained in a piece of jewelry. The most valuable is PT999, meaning that for every thousand parts, it is 999 parts platinum and 1 part alloy. Platinum jewelry also comes in PT950, PT900, and PT850.




The luxurious beauty of Platinum Most of the jewelry we carry at Chavez Fine Jewelers can be ordered in platinum. We have a large range of jewelry to choose from. For when you want to pop the question, to the rings exchanged on that special day, one way to symbolize your eternal love is through jewelry made from platinum.

We also can have everyday wear jewelry made from platinum, such as color rings, pendants, and earrings.
