You can try to buff it out but I really wouldnt sweat it. Platinum (and gold, silver) is going to get fine scratches with daily wear period. At least with platinum you’re not losing any weight, its just shifting around. No one else will notice.

Totally happened with my old platinum engagement ring, the metal is technically soft, so it does move around and get scuffed up easily, but as MrsBuesleBee: said you don’t lose any of the metal!

Eventually platinum gets all scratched up and the result is a matte finish. It doesn’t stay shiny like white gold.

I think it would buff out, but I was warned by my jeweler not to get my ring buffed often because a layer of platinum is worn away each time and the ring can become weak or damaged. I think that a little wear looks really lovely but I did have my e-ring buffed just before my wedding so it would match my wedding band.

Preciousgembles:  Platinum is durable, meaning it won’t easily bend or break; but it’s soft, meaning it will scratch pretty easily. Your ring will end up with a lot of scratches, it’s best to appreciate them as “character” and a quality of platinum.

My plat ring that I wore every day for 1.5 years had hardly any scratches, and the few that they had polished out really easily at home.
