Irish Claddagh Rings :: Platinum Claddagh Wedding Bands

Platinum Claddagh Wedding bands for a love that will last forever

A Platinum Claddagh Wedding Band is an excellent and symbolic choice for a wedding ring.  Not only do you have the unique symbolism of the Claddagh: two hands (symbolizing friendship) clasping a heart (symbolizing love) topped with a crown (symbolizing loyalty), but you also have the eternal symbolism of platinum—a metal that will last forever, just like your love for your spouse.

What makes Platinum different then other metals?  It is more rare and precious than gold or silver. It's heavy weight and durability means it will not wear away or tarnish – even with constant use. Platinum is almost identical looking to white gold and silver, but is much more durable. Another unique trait of platinum is that it is hypoallergenic –making it suitable for sensitive skinned individuals.  Platinum is also a wonderful metal to hold gemstones –like diamonds—in place for the life of the jewelry. The world’s most famous diamonds – the Hope and the Star of Africa—are both set in platinum.
Platinum jewelry has a long history dating back to ancient Egypt. During World War II the United States government labeled platinum a strategic metal due to its durability. Thus, platinum could only be used for military purposes and ceased being used for jewelry. Platinum is now back to use in jewelry and has quickly become one of the most popular precious metals for wedding bands.
Due to the longevity and rarity of platinum, it is more expensive than gold or silver, but worth the investment in the long run, especially if you are looking for an heirloom quality wedding ring. Check out our several exquisite choices of platinum claddagh wedding bands for both men and women.
