Platinum is always among the top jewelry choices celebrities make for red carpet events, premieres and other appearances where cameras are flashing. The metal doesn’t reflect its color into stones, allowing sapphires, rubies and other precious gems to give off their true hues. Platinum is also rarer than white gold, adding that exclusivity factor stars seem to crave.

Here, check out examples of platinum jewelry worn by celebrities in the past few months.
