Palladium looks like platinum, feels like platinum, is part of the platinum family and is a great alternative to platinum when it comes to wedding rings. Like platinum, palladium can be fashioned into jewellery on its own or alloyed with other metals. Palladium is 30 times rarer than gold and doesn't need rhodium plating or bleaching to achieve its naturally coloured white finish.
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.
Palladium is resistant to corrosion, oxidation and tarnishing and is very durable. Because it is low maintenance, lighter than platinum, 12% harder than platinum and nearly half the weight, palladium can be an especially good choice. Not only is it lighter, but Palladium is also an extremely strong metal, making it scratch resistant and an ideal ring for any man or woman that has a hands on job or active lifestyle.
The fourth tip is the clarity. The clarity means that the less imperfections a diamond has, the more value it has. So you might want to pay for diamond that has a little bit of imperfections and make sure that the imperfections cannot be seen with the naked eye. That way you pay less for the diamond, but it doesn't really change anything.
White gold jewellery can cause allergic reactions due to the fact that the majority of it is manufactured using alloys containing nickel as the bleaching agent. A percentage of the population is allergic to nickel, but due to palladium's purity, allergic reactions are avoided.
