An important step in designing a custom engagement ring is choosing the metal. The most popular choices are white gold and yellow gold, but there are plenty of options, depending on the lifestyle of whomever is wearing the ring.

Another popular choice for an engagement ring and/or wedding band is platinum. For those who aren’t too familiar with metals, this material comes with a lot of preconceived flaws. Some people think it’s too heavy and hard, and think it has a darker color.

Platinum is one of the hardest metals that Abby Sparks Jewelry works with, but the average person probably can’t tell the different in weight. In fact, they might not even be able to tell the difference in color. Platinum might not be as bright as white gold, but it still has a beautiful shine and color.

At Abby Sparks Jewelry, we recommend platinum for someone who often enjoys activities like hiking, rock climbing and biking. Even if you don’t have the most athletic lifestyle, if you bang your ring often or are rough with your hands day-to-day, this could be the metal for you.
