70th Anniversary Gifts: Platinum or Smoky Quartz
Just one-tenth of one percent of all marriages reach this awesome anniversary. Seventy years of marriage is an incredible achievement that combines both long-lasting love and enduring good health. It is likely that there will be grandchildren, and possibly great-grandchildren and this is the perfect time for them to show their love and appreciation with a special and meaningful gift.
Platinum, compared to other precious metals is extremely rare, just like a 70th wedding anniversary. The total amount of platinum that is mined annually is 15 times less than that of gold and 100 times less than that of silver. Platinum is the most expensive, the most prestigious metal used in jewellery. Platinum doesn’t corrode, discolour, fade or lose shape with time and as one of the hardest jewellery metals, it is ideal for setting diamonds and other gemstones. Platinum has been used in jewellery for over 5000 years, it can be traced back to ancient Egypt. It is the ultimate symbol of true, enduring, and everlasting love.
