So rare, it has been suggested that if all the mined and refined platinum were poured in to an Olympic sized swimming pool, it would not even cover your ankles. Derived from the Spanish term platina del Pinto which literally translates as 'little silver of the Pinto river', platinum is naturally silvery white in appearance, and does not require rhodium plating like white gold.
A very dense, malleable and precious metal, platinum is resistant to corrosion and incredibly hardwearing. And while good care should be taken to prevent scratches, platinum is unique in that the metal is only displaced, not lost.
