Jordan David. Ring. November 07th , 2017.
For married couples, whether you have been married for quite a while or only for a few years, viewing a wedding ring display may bring back memories of your own wonderful wedding celebration. In all cultures, wedding ring symbolizes the unity and fidelity of two people, but these different societies also have different customs associated with the wedding ring.
Bridal jewellery in particular has seen a growth in demand for palladium, with the metal enjoying a surge in sales of both men's and women's wedding rings, offering a stylish but more affordable alternative for many brides and grooms.
When you give a promise ring, it is up to you to come up with its true meaning. This can vary from person to person as much as relationships can vary from couple to couple. You may have helped your loved one through a personal hardship and your promise ring could symbolize your devotion towards being there when your partner needs you. It could simply be a romantic gift symbolizing the next level of your relationship. No matter what the individual meaning of the promise ring is, it is taken very seriously and should strengthen the bond between two people.
Palladium has had a legally recognised UK hallmark since July 2009 and from January 2010 it is now a compulsory legal requirement for all articles of the precious metal weighing more than 1 gram to carry a hallmark. Hallmarking has protected the UK consumer and ensured that our jewellery industry operates high standards for over 700 years.
Palladium was discovered by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803 and has been used as a precious metal in jewellery since 1939. As recently as 2001, palladium was more expensive than platinum and rarely used in jewellery due to the issue of casting - the technology to efficiently cast palladium as jewellery did not exist then. Palladium is extremely difficult to cast well because it is a veritable oxygen sponge when molten; it therefore requires a very controlled melting environment. However, the casting problem has been solved and its use in jewellery has increased because of a large increase in the price of platinum and a drop in the price of palladium.
