Platinum vs. Gold
Yes, platinum is more expensive than gold. It is also a much heavier metal then gold. If you compare a gold ring and a platinum ring with similar dimensions, the platinum ring can weigh as much as 60% more then the gold ring. Platinum's density creates a finished product that polishes bright, never tarnishes, is scratch-resistant and will last a lifetime. Another difference between platinum and gold is that Camelot platinum jewelry contains 95% pure platinum. Compare that to gold, where rings can have as little as 41% pure gold. While white gold contains alloys to create its color, platinum is naturally white and will retain its luster for as long as you own the ring.
