Actually platinum is a softer metal than white gold, but that’s strange the two pieces were separate and not one whole piece.  It’s most likely they did this because white gold is a stronger and harder metal.

@Mrs. Louboutin:  Platinum may be a “softer” metal than white gold, but it is less likely to break off than white gold.  They have different tensile strengths and platinum is less brittle, which makes platinum a safer setting in general.

@aliciareneephotography:  I’m so sorry your ring broke!  But it’s really lucky you noticed when it happened so you didn’t look down later and find a missing diamond with no idea where it went!

@mrsbeth: My e-ring and wedding band are platinum and I never knew that!  I do know that one of the benefits of platinum is that since it is softer and it gets banged against something, it isn’t noticeable like a scratch on white gold – this must be the same thing. Learn something new everyday!
