Explanation:
Well, Is diamond Jubilee and Platinum same? If not, we can use Platinum Jyanti. To the best of my knowledge there is no word for Platinum in Hindi.

platinum jubilee
Platinum Jayantii - प्लेटिनम जयंती


Explanation:
It appears that no specific term has been fixed for platinum jubiless whereas we have got Rajat Jayantii for Silver Jubilee, SwarNa Jayantii for Golden Jubilee, Hiirak Jayantii for Diamond Jubilee.

I think it will be worthwhile to translate it as Platinum Jayantii(प्लेटिनम जयंती).

Reference:Your note above

I find it pertinent to define Platinum before coming to Platinum Jubilee

Platinum

Platinum is a heavy precious metallic element; gray-white and resistant to corroding; occurs in some nickel and copper ores and is also found native in some deposits.

Platinum Jubilee

A Platinum Jubilee is to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the reign of a monarch, the founding of a business, etc.

For example, in the United Kingdom in June 2022, the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II will take place if she still holds the throne.

Hope it proves helpful for you.

Diamond Jubilee is different from Platinum Jubilee.

A Diamond Jubilee is a celebration held to mark a 60th anniversary.

In the United Kingdom, a Diamond Jubilee is held in a monarch\'s 60th year. Queen Victoria celebrated the jubilee in 1897, and should she still be on the throne at the time, Queen Elizabeth II\'s diamond jubilee will be in 2012.

I don\'t think that PAras Jayantii would be a suitable Hindi equivalent for the same.

In the Indian context, it is 75 years. For others it could be 70, as langclinic has mentioned.

platinum jubilee
हीरकोत्तर जयंती or पंचसप्तति जयंती


Explanation:
I have given same answers in reply to langclinic's question. Because my answer was selected, so my confidence is a high now. ;)

I agree to
प्‍लैटिनम जयंती and पचहत्तरवीं जयंती as well. However the above two options are eye catchy ones.

हीरकोत्तर = हीरक + उत्तर
Here, I used a suffix simply. But there is a drawback that this could mean seventy one, seventy two etc. as well.

पंचसप्तति is a sanskrit term for the number 75.

Hope you also agree!

If platinum anywhere means 70, then instead of 'पंचसप्तति जयंती', it should be 'सप्तति जयंती'.
