What is Palladium??
Many people are unfamiliar with Palladium. They don’t know what it is, and how it stands up to other precious metals used in the jewelry industry.
Here’s the scoop…
Palladium is a metal that is from the Platinum family. It is a lustrous silvery white metal that is very strong and durable, and also has a low density. This means it weighs less than platinum. Because this metal is naturally white, it doesn’t require high maintenance costs to keep it looking its best.
There are many benefits to having jewelry made in Palladium.
1) It’s hypo-allergenic, which is great for people who have trouble wearing white gold jewelry. Different alloy combinations (nickel being the main culprit) in the gold can cause people to have allergic reactions. Because Palladium is pure it is a great choice for those that have metal allergies.
2) It’s naturally white. There will be no maintenance in keeping a palladium ring white. Where white gold is coated in rhodium to give it a bright white look, palladium isn’t.
3) It is very durable. Because palladium is from the Platinum family, it boasts strength and durability. It is great for everyday wear and tear.
4) It is inexpensive in comparison to platinum and white gold.
So what’s the point? You get the look of white gold, the strength and durability of platinum and an unmatched price that only Palladium could provide!!
