Spend what you know you can afford and get a great diamond engagement ring that she will love. Your goal is to make her happy and make sure she says yes so you need to get her what she wants and go a little above what she is expecting. Trust me what she is expecting and what she wants are two different things. You need to find these out and then do some creative shopping using online discounter like eBay. Avoid the mall jewelry stores and make sure to get prices from more than just a couple stores. There are a ton of great deals out there and the more patient you are the better your chances of getting a ring that will appraise for twice what you spend.
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.
Palladium not only feels and looks amazing, but its versatility makes it a jeweller's dream. Stephen Wilkinson, jewellery designer for The Wedding Ring Specialist believes that palladium is going to explode onto the fine jewellery market. \"With high gold and platinum prices, palladium is now being considered as a viable alternative for wedding rings. It doesn't require rhodium plating like white gold and weighs much less than platinum, making it a good alternative for mens wide heavy wedding rings.\"Palladium jewellery continues to gain in popularity, with it's brightness and lustre is transforming it into the metal of choice for both mens's and women's wedding rings.
