Answers

Contrary to popular belief, platinum can be scratched on the surface, but the roughened texture forms a dark patina that looks good after several years. The platinum band remains as thick as it was at the start although its shape may have changed through the years. Meanwhile, gold is easily scratched and leaves a crumbly residue. Thus, gold bands become thinner in the end and must be dipped again into melted gold and remolded.
