Discovered in 1803 by English chemist William Hyde Wollaston, palladium is a member of the platinum family of metals. The majority of the world’s supply of palladium comes from South Africa and is often extracted as a by-product when mining for other metals such as nickel and platinum. It's a scarce metal and is not just used in jewellery. Your car's catalytic converter wouldn't work without palladium, and it also has a role to play in manufacturing, dentistry and electronics.

Because of the demand from both the jewellery and the automotive industry, palladium carries a very high price. Jewellery-grade palladium is highly refined and very pure, which is why palladium rings are comparable in price to gold or platinum diamond rings. Current palladium prices are at the highest they've ever been, making palladium jewellery a good investment as well as a highly-prized luxury good.

Palladium responds very well to professional polishing and will retain its shine indefinitely. Palladium doesn't tarnish and is incredibly lightweight, so it's very comfortable to wear. One significant advantage to palladium is that it's hypoallergenic, so it's rare to have any kind of allergic reaction to it. If you're sensitive to the silver content in white gold, palladium makes a great alternative.
Yes. Palladium is a very strong metal. That makes it excellent for tension rings. The principle of a tension ring is that the tension or spring in the metal holds the gem in position without the need for a bezel or claw setting. Palladium diamond rings come in all types, from solitaire engagement rings to eternity rings, wedding bands for both men and women, and dress or cocktail rings. It is this incredible versatility, as well as its strength and lustre, that makes palladium such a popular choice for rings and jewellery.
Yes. A simple wipe with a soft cloth will bring your palladium diamond ring back to as-new. The occasional gentle wash in warm soapy water will remove any dirt or bacteria from the inside of your ring to help you avoid any skin irritation.
