I hate the ide oaf having to have white gold re-worked every few years. Knowing me, I would just not do it.
I don’t know that I trust the new white golds that they calim done’t need it. I like platinum a lot, like the look of it, like the way it gets to be a dull metal–but don’t like the expense.
I recently ran across Palladium as a metal for jewelry. In price it si more than yellow gold but less than Platinum.
What do ya’ll know about it?

My wedding band is palladium, it matches my platinum engagement ring and I can’t wait to wear it!
I have a thin palladium ring I wear when I play sports. It’s been swimming, in jacuzzis and all sorts. Still looks like the day I bought it!

I have a palladium ring – I love it. It’s really durable, which is important to me, since i work with my hands a lot more than your average person. It has barely scratched, it shines up wonderfully, and with the savings from not getting platinum, I got a bigger diamond out of the deal!

I’ve been wearing my palladium e-ring for 2 years now and my wedding band for 1, and I am very happy with my choice of metal. It looks great, and has the durability and low maintenance qualities of platimun without being heavy or as pricey. Winning!

I have palladium for both ering and wedding band and love it. I like the lighter weight compared to platinum (similar to 18k gold) and there is no risk of an allergy to the alloy (I have nickel allergies and some white gold has nickel in it). Lower price is a bonus too!
I have heard it is harder to find someone to resize it if needed. I am not too worried.

My engagement ring is palladium (and my wedding band will be too). I love it! It’s a tad whiter-looking than platinum, is very durable, and cost effective.
