Sara Holder. Ring. July 29th , 2017.
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.

To achieve simplicity, a ring formed from another metal is made as a base for the diamonds. However, the metal itself would either be gold or platinum since they are the only ones that can hold onto diamond. One of the rare moments that gold is not the main feature in a ring is when a diamond is on top. In the case of wedding rings, the diamonds would then be lined around the metal band. The final form still exudes elegance without having to be as extravagant as it really is. You can also take time to look into different wedding ring catalogs. These are usually available online and in your local jewelry stores. Most of the jewelers, moreover, are willing to modify or even tone down some of the designs to accommodate your requests.

Hand it over to an expert jeweler, and he or she will transform the already-precious stone into something very beautiful.
