What Is Palladium?
Palladium, like its sister metal Platinum, is pure. Unlike Gold, Palladium can be used to create fine jewelry without adding a large proportion of alloy metals. A new, proprietary technology allows Palladium jewelry to be crafted at 95% purity as compared to 75% purity for 18K Gold or 58.5% purity for 14K Gold.
Palladium’s color is naturally white. Because its color is natural and not the result of plating or alloying, Palladium’s white has great depth and luster. A beautiful metal in its own right, Palladium enhances the beauty of the diamonds and gemstones set within it.
Palladium is a member of the Platinum Group Metals and is 17 times more rare than Gold. Mined together with Platinum and in fewer than a half-dozen regions around the globe, Palladium is truly a precious metal and a fitting symbol of love, life, and other rare gifts.
Palladium, like Platinum, is a naturally strong metal. This means Palladium can be used for fine jewelry at a higher purity level than other metals such as Gold. It also means it is strong and durable; Palladium has long been used to create the prongs trusted to secure diamonds and other gemstones.
