Platinum is often called the “King of Metals” as it has a special allure because it is rare, enduring, and pure. However, not all platinum is equal and not all platinum craftsmanship is the similar. Wedding rings and engagement rings are symbols of unity. Wedding rings and engagement rings are traditionally worn on the third finger of the left hand because it was believed that the left hand had a special vein, “the vein of love”, that ran directly to the wearers heart. Wedding rings are now more than just a piece of jewellery. Wedding rings symbolize circles of perfection, unity with no beginning and no end. There is perhaps no greater symbol and expression of love, than with the perfect set of his and her wedding rings. Not all wedding rings and diamond ring settings are created equal.
In theory, a carat can be defined as a unit of weight for gemstones.
One carat equals 1/5 of a gram.

Though, the clarity and colour of a diamond are usually rated, scales are not uniform. There is always some doubt regarding the clarity and colour of a diamond.

When buying platinum diamond wedding rings, one should always opt for whitest white diamond.
The reflecting and refracting power of a diamond is totally dependent on its whiteness.
In other words, the whiter the colour the more it will reflect and refract light.
According to experts, when white light enters the diamond part of the ray is reflected back and the rest penetrates the stone. Colour differences are impossible to determine by the untrained eye, so one should always opt for gemologists in this regard.
The purity of the platinum in the ring should be verified
For well reputed reliable brands, the hallmark should be checked.
One should look for quality handcrafting in the engraving, filigree, pave or other fine details.
