We will be honeymooning in Aruba (duh!), and I was just wondering about platinum and chlorine. I will definitely be floating around in the pool A LOT. I plan on bringing my wedding band with me (don’t know about my e-ring yet), but I would keep my band on in the pool. Is that going to damage it??

Here is an answer I found:
“The only concern I would have is if any of the rings are assembled with white gold solders and not welded with platinum solders. White gold solders can be affected by the chemicals. This would be where perhaps a setting is joined to the ring band, etc. The jeweler who sold you the rings should be able to answer that question.
Even with platinum essentially not affected by pool chemicals, I would rather your wife not wear the rings in the pool day in and day out. I believe there will be no chemical damage but would not want a ring to need every good set of underwater eyes to find it on the bottom of the pool!
Steve, your and your wife should be ok with the pool. Folks with white gold..not fine at all”

I don’t know if anything has an effect on platinum. I have a platinum ring and have a pool and have gone on vacations since and there is no sign that my ring has been affected at all.
