Celebrities are popping the question and saying ‘I DO’ with platinum rings

We count on our favorite celebrities to set the trends when it comes to their jewelry choices, and engagement and wedding rings are no exception. Whether they get engaged in Rome or wed in Malibu, members of Hollywood’s A-List prefer to commemorate their special occasions with platinum.
After all, platinum provides an ideal setting since it’s stronger than other precious metals,
which means that you don’t have to worry about losing the treasured center stone with
everyday wear. Also, platinum is a naturally white metal, allowing the diamond to sparkle even brighter. Since platinum is so durable and loses little metal over time, the ring will undoubtedly become a family heirloom that can be passed down for generations to follow.
Here are a few celebrities who’ve recently taken the plunge in platinum:
KEVIN JONAS made an impression on fiancé Danielle Deleasa by proposing with a platinum and 3-carat cushion cut diamond engagement ring from Jacob & Co. The ring features a double shank band with 210 round pavé diamonds.
JENNIFER HUDSON started a new trend by proposing to her fiancé, David Otunga, with a custom platinum and 5-carat diamond ring by Neil Lane.
ANDY RODDICK & BROOKLYN DECKER exchanged platinum wedding bands by Tiffany & Co. Brooklyn’s engagement ring is also set in platinum with a diamond solitaire by Tiffany& Co.
