The most common metal for many of our pieces is gold. As a trusted Reading jeweller we know that gold jewellery can last for generations however we also know the key to this is maintenance and care not to mention spotting any problems early.
Platinum, although stronger than gold and resistant to tarnishing and discolouration, has its similar characteristics. For one, it can still be scratched. According to jewelrynotes.com, any material harder than platinum, e.g. titanium, tungsten, and diamonds can scratch it, so it should be kept separated from other pieces where possible.
