Palladium rings are not coated.  I’ve had my palladium rings for over three years and they look the same as the day I got them.

hazelbee:  Nope, not coated. So you won’t have to have them redipped, most you’ll ever need to do with it is have a buff if it ever gets a dent and really scratched up.

No, palladium is a silvery-white all by itself. His ring will be as white in 10 years as the day you got married, though maybe with a bit more patina to it, similar to how platinum wears over time….some people like that look, and some like to take it for a polishing to keep it shinier 🙂

Palladium actually can also be alloyed with gold to make a white gold that does not need plating. My old white gold rings were an unplated palladium/gold alloy. They were not bright white like rhodium plated rings, but they were a white metal that did not need plating (so you never had that colour change).
