If you’re fond of browsing through social media, you most likely follow the top Filipino celebrities and you’re always updated on their latest projects and whereabouts. Influencers, actresses, actors, and celebrities often publish content highlighting their outfits of the day, travels, luxury goods, and precious jewelry collections.
More and more celebrities are wearing platinum jewelry because they love the purity of this precious metal. According to studies, platinum alloys are estimated to be 95% pure. Aside from this, platinum is known for its strength, hardness, and durability. Given such characteristics, platinum jewelry takes longer to derive and is often higher in price. But with the greater chance that it will last longer as time passes, it is becoming a top choice among many celebrities.
Considered one of the most beautiful actresses in the local scene is Ellen Adarna. With her flawless skin and authentic persona, many fans can’t help but be glued to Adarna’s Instagram posts. With millions of followers on Instagram, Sep Vergara Fine Jewelry, the first and only platinum jewelry store in Manila, grabbed the opportunity to sign up Adarna to become their brand ambassadress.
And with platinum’s purity, it will surely compliment Adarna’s skin as this metal is hypoallergenic. It is not mixed with other alloys that most likely will cause breakouts and allergies. Adarna stunned us all when she wore princess-cut diamond stud earrings set in platinum for her gorgeous bridal shoot.
