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.
It's the shape of the diamond when you look at it from above. Now, there is a type of shape that we call round. Now the round shaped diamonds are the most popular because these are the ones with the most sparkle. There's the heart shaped diamond - this is the most popular with lovers. Then there's the pear shaped diamond; it either looks like a pear or like a tear. This is mostly popular for earrings, less for diamond rings. The oval diamonds; these are good for people who have short fingers because when you have an oval shaped diamond ring it makes your fingers look longer.
Forget the 2 months salary rule right now. That was just intelligent marketing on the part of DeBeers about 15 years ago. If you make $4,000 a month, then you are talking about spending $8,000 on a diamond engagement ring. Most people that make $4,000 a month cannot afford to spend two months of their salary on a ring. Maybe getting a ring that is worth $8,000 would be a good idea if you can get a great deal and spend around $3,000. Trust me this can be done and we will talk about that a bit in step 5.
