Do you offer palladium settings?


YES AND NO

We use 14k and 18k white gold alloyed with palladium. These alloys are durable, long-lasting, hypoallergenic and do not need plating to remain white.

 

We don't offer Palladium-centric alloys. The combination of lower density (compared to platinum) and inferior hardness (compared to gold) makes them less durable over time in our experience.

More information

Palladium was used in jewelry manufacturing during World War II as a substitute for platinum, which was declared strategic to the war effort. Its popularity rose again in the early 2000s due to affordability, as gold prices reached an all-time high. In both instances Palladium was adopted as a substitute for the more popular noble metals, not a replacement.
