Today people around the world celebrate the beauty of fine Platinum. This durable metal maintains a very high melting point. With a powerful 3,214.9 degrees Fahrenheit required to reduce precious silver-colored Platinum to liquid, rest assured that rings and other items of jewelry crafted from this rare metal last practically forever. Its awe-inspiring properties and symbolic durability make it popular in modern engagement rings and wedding bands. Few more meaningful testimonials to enduring love exist.
For centuries, Platinum remained very difficult to extract successfully. Despite the challenges, at least one ancient Egyptian tomb contains alloys of Platinum and some Pre-Columbian civilizations in South America on rare occasions used this metal. However, only with the invention of more potent furnaces during the 1800s did Platinum obtain wide circulation. Now this hard, stable shiny metallic element ("Pt") ranks as one of the most valuable precious metals, more expensive than some alloys of Gold.
