We couldn't help but notice that platinum was the precious metal of choice for red carpet jewellery this year. Understandably stars love it for its rarity and purity which means that unlike white gold it retains its colour making it perfect for wedding rings. Its also incredibly strong so it won't misshape and will keep its form eternally which is why Marilyn Monroe chose platinum for her wedding and engagement band when she married Joe DiMaggio

Don't forget the rest of your wedding day jewellery too - if you're feeling extravagant we adore Sandra Bullock's Neil Lane diamond earrings set in platinum for instant wedding day elegance. Or opt for classic diamond studs set in platinum for a more traditional touch.
