As summer’s heat intensifies, it seems apt to reminisce about the thrilling red carpet affairs from the past spring, where one star shone the brightest – platinum. Revered for its natural white color, platinum is the epitome of elegance and longevity. It’s stronger than other jewelry metals, meaning it will securely hold diamonds and other precious gems. As such, it’s become a trusted ally on the red carpet, where every step and every twirl is captured for the world to see. In retail, its durability translates to heirloom-quality pieces, beloved by generations of jewelry lovers. But more than its physical properties, it’s a symbol of purity, rarity, and eternity. When it comes to making a statement of sophistication and eternal beauty, nothing shines quite like platinum.
The Met Gala was a platinum-filled affair this year. One of our favorite pop icons (pictured above) Dua Lipa outshone the competition in a dazzling platinum necklace by Tiffany and Co.
