Quick Facts About Palladium Wedding Bands
Palladium is similar to platinum - it's even in the platinum metals group family. It is a rare precious metal, that is naturally white. Palladium began to be used in manufacturing rings and jewelry during World War II. The reason was that platinum was a strategic war material and jewelers did not have access to it. So they discovered palladium was a great alternative.
Palladium rings will never "yellow" on you, like white gold rings will do. White gold is made by taking pure gold, which is yellow and blending it with white metal alloys such as nickel. Then white gold is typically rhodium plated, which makes it nice and bright white. But the rhodium plating soon wears off and the result is a dull color that has yellow undertones. This will never happen with palladium.
Are you allergic to nickel? Better stay away from white gold then. Palladium is hypo-allergenic and a great choice.
Palladium is less dense than platinum, so a palladium wedding band will not be heavy. With less density a palladium ring will weigh about 1/2 as much as a similar platinum ring. Less weight means less cost to you. Additionally, palladium is much harder and less malleable than platinum, so your palladium ring won't bend like a platinum ring will. Many customers have complained that platinum ring scratch very easily, bend and misform. Another advantage of Palladium!
