The platinum line of products at Ronaldo Designer Jewelry, Inc. is from the finest quality jewelry grade platinum. Ronaldo is one of the few jewelry designers in the United States who has the skill and ability to create his designs by hand. Truly remarkable craftsmanship is displayed in each beautiful piece of platinum jewelry.
The most appealing characteristic of platinum is its durability. While it is the strongest of jewelry metals, it can scratch and develop a patina of wear. Many people prefer this look unique to platinum, but if you like the shine, a jeweler can polish your jewelry to bring back the original reflective finish. Until that can be done, buffing with a soft cloth can give your jewelry renewed luster.
The sources of platinum production remained limited. The demand for platinum is essentially satisfied by the mining activities in just two regions. First is the Bushveld Complex, just north of South Africa’s capital, Pretoria, which produces more than two thirds of the annual platinum supply. The second is the Noril’sk-Talnakh region in the extreme north of Siberia in Russia which supplies most of the rest. Russia is the only nation with significant stocks of platinum and many believe that these reserves may be running out.
