These Platinum Pendants Stand the Test of Time


The right pendant or charm necklace can be heavy with meaning for many consumers—after all, sentimentality is often what jewelry is all about.

Have you ever held a piece of jewelry in your hands, rich and heavy in metal, and enjoyed the weight of it? Which is what makes platinum such a fine choice for a treasured piece—with its heft and gorgeous luster, it feels like a metal worthy of the job.

Everyday necklaces and pendants are not as plentiful in platinum as they are in gold and in sterling silver, whether that comes down to price or the fact that consumers are currently still all-in on yellow gold fashion jewelry. But mixing metals is a hot trend, and the price of gold can, at times, make a great case for platinum as a solid (literally) choice.

Of course, if you’re looking for a luxury necklace in platinum—especially one heavy on diamonds—many jewelers will recommend platinum for its ability to help a diamond shine like a spotlight while also keeping it safe and secure (and that counts for colored gemstones, too).

These platinum pendants—many with diamonds, some with colored gemstones—promise to stand the test of time, regardless of which metal is currently in vogue.
