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.
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.
The wedding ring should represent the strength of the marriage amid the turmoil that it will endure. With that being said, diamond wedding rings should stand as affirmation to the promises that couples take during the wedding. Their rings will keep them under any circumstances until they are parted by death.
