Platinum is trending in a big way, says jewellery designer Poonam Soni.


"Platinum is ultimate luxury. It is used to set solitaires to make them even more precious," Soni said in a statement.

"Platinum is becoming one of the popular and preferred metal of choice this season. Going beyond the rarity and luminescence, platinum is now available at an extraordinary value and in contemporary designs which find a place in every modern woman's jewellery box," she added.

Soni also recommends that designs in naturally white platinum are getting popular.

"Aesthetically designed pendants, earrings and neck pieces embrace the beautiful motifs of flowers, leaves, natural foliage are making a big trend. The trends also includes delicate filigree forms of art nouveau styles," said Soni.

One can also add colour to platinum jewellery with precious stones.

"It enhances the beauty and adds individuality and an exemplary style to the final jewel.

"Platinum proves to be a perfect choice and for settings I recommend, the prong setting for a round diamond; flush set for a princess cut stone and the plate setting for an emerald cut. Go for a matt finish to highlight the diamond shimmer or a mirror like high polish for that much needed spark," she said.
