Platinum is versatile, with remarkable qualities that have led to astonishing applications.
From Fabergé to Cartier, the world’s greatest jewellery designers have always preferred working with platinum. Its remarkable pliability allows it to be drawn out to a fine wire, enabling the creation of intricate platinum mesh accessories which could not be fashioned from other precious metals.
Platinum is also in demand in other fields, including the automobile industry, most notably in catalytic converters.
Platinum is a life-saving metal: More than 50,000 people live healthily thanks to the platinum used in their pacemakers. Platinum is not affected by the oxidizing reaction of blood, it is compatible with living tissue and it has excellent conductivity.
