Palladium Ring Information

An increasingly popular precious metal alternative to platinum and white gold, palladium rings offer a classic yet modern look. Palladium is related to platinum, and share platinum’s lustrous white hue and durability, though it is significantly lighter in weight and generally much less expensive. Palladium was initially used as an alloy for white gold, but rose to prominence as an independent jewelry material during WWII when platinum and gold production was limited. Palladium is hypoallergenic, and can still be used as a high quality alloy for white gold jewelry. Palladium rings are a great option for those who want a naturally white precious metal band at a lower cost than platinum.

What is Palladium?

  • Palladium is a member of the platinum group metals (PGMs), and shares many characteristics with platinum.

  • Palladium has the same naturally silvery white color as platinum, and unlike white gold does not require any rhodium re-plating.

  • Palladium is impressively durable as well as tarnish-resistant.

  • Palladium prices once exceeded those of platinum due to difficulties in casting, which have since been resolved.

  • Due to its growing popular use in jewelry and status as a precious metal, all palladium rings and jewelry items must be hallmarked (effective 2010).

  • Palladium is hypoallergenic and appropriate for those with sensitive skin.

  • Palladium rings can be resized, though it is generally more difficult to do so than with platinum or white gold.
