What is Palladium?

Palladium is just as naturally white as Platinum, but it is typically less expensive. Palladium rings are composed of 95% pure palladium which means they do not contain the metals that cause silver to tarnish.

Like Platinum it is tarnish resistant and naturally hypoallergenic making it a great option for someone who is sensitive to other metals but have their heart set on a white metal.

Palladium is a lighter material than most other metals which make it a popular choice for people who do not wear jewellery often and find heavy rings too uncomfortable. With the increase in the price of gold and platinum, palladium is one of the best choices for those with a lower budget who don’t want to sacrifice quality or beauty.



  • Less expensive than platinum
  • Natural white colour
  • Hypoallergenic, due to its purity
  • Natural white colour compliments gemstones



  • Difficult to work with (resizing)


Just like Platinum, due to its natural white appearance, Palladium will sustain its white lustre during wear. After long periods of wear, a surface layer with the appearance of a slight sheen will appear which can be removed by a professional jeweller with a full polish to bring the metal back to life.
