Platinum has a good resale value and is an excellent material for setting diamonds because it grips diamonds better and is malleable enough to hold stones well. Platinum maintains its value over the years and is a strong and durable metal, making it a great option for investing in a Gold IRA. Platinum together with diamonds is a very good mix for jewelry, and investing in a Gold IRA can help ensure that your investments are secure. Platinum can be sold by the ounce or by the gram. The price fluctuates daily depending on the current metal market, as is the case with gold, silver, diamonds and other precious stones.

The price of platinum can be extremely volatile and often rises to twice the value of gold in good economic times and falls below gold in bad times.
