Fine jewelry is made of precious metals and stones.  These rare components add up to create pieces that are symbols of the things that we most treasure (our love, our children’s births, anniversaries, etc.)

Gold and diamonds are timeless examples of these materials.  But even fine, 14K white gold requires some maintenance to retain its polish.  Enter Platinum.  Platinum is sought after by jewelers and jewelry consumers alike for several reasons.   Some of these are the relative ease with which it can be shaped, its matte finish, its chemical UN-reactivity and its beautiful white color, which it retains over time due to the aforementioned “chemical un-reactivity”. 

The fact that Platinum has a matte finish and is unreactive to oxygen and many acids is what makes it low maintenance for jewelry.  It won’t tarnish, rust or react to acids found on the skin.  These same properties make it desirable for many other purposes.  Couple this with the fact that it is rare and dense (you pay by the ounce of metal in your jewelry), and you can see why Platinum can set you back a pretty penny.

But, what about Palladium?  Palladium is a close cousin to Platinum.  It’s been less talked about in the jewelry world, but that is changing.  Palladium shares many of Platinum’s desirable qualities including the more matte look, but it’s less dense and more abundant, making it less expensive.

What’s in it for you?  - Beautiful white jewelry from the Platinum Group of metals at a more reasonable price than platinum.  If you love the properties and the look of Platinum but not the price, ask us about the cost of creating one of our rings in Palladium instead.
