@dreams030684:  My Engagement Ring is palladium. I’m a recent college grad (not a ton of money) with severe allergies. Palladium fit the budget and the health concerns. I’ve had zero reaction to wearing my ring. I’m not a big jewelry person, so I like how low maintainence my ring is, my jeweler told me to get it polished every 4 or 5 years and that’s about it. I also like how lightweight it is. In my personal opinion platinum rings are heavy and tippy which I don’t like. I haven’t noticed my ring scratching very much, but if it did it would be really hard to see in the design I got. I think the bottom it a bit scratched up, but I know I hit it on a lot of things at work (I often make clinking noises when picking up bottles). At first it was really noticeable, but now it’s settled into a patina so it doesn’t bug me much.

Here’s my ring

I have rings in palladium.  It is very durable, comparable to platinum.  My rings have a few scratches on them and I have very careful with my jewelry.

We looked at both platinum and palladium for my husband’s ring. I’m pretty sure he picked the palladium. Next to my platinum rings, his looks just fine.

I love my palladium e-ring. Affordable and durable with no redipping! I do have a lot of little scratches on the underside of the ring, but it’s only really noticable if I am holding it in direct light and am looking for the scratches. I definitely recommend palladium.

@dreams030684:  I have a palladium set and it has held up quite well. It’s still really shiney and I haven’t scratched it yet Tongue Out. I choose it because it’s lower maintenance to white gold and I prefer the weight too. The only downside is that I had a hard time finding a jeweller who felt confident enough work with palladium – but I live in Europe and at least where I live gold and platinum are the desired metals for wedding sets – maybe in a few years it will become more popular especially with how high the gold prices are now.

Palladium!  My ring is from the 1920/1930’s and it still looks like new!  Nice not to have it dipped but I believe you can get it polished to clean small imperfections up.

This thread might help you:

Palladium pictures please!

I was debating between palladium and platinum too. Ended up going with platinum because I like the heavy feel of it

My engagement ring is palladium. I’ve had it for a couple of months and it’s gotten a little scratched, but I’m pretty hard on my hands and it’s not noticeable unless you’re looking at it super up-close. Pros: shiny, lightweight, doesn’t require redipping, and scratches can be buffed out without losing metal. I sent mine back to the company my Fiance bought it from for resizing, but the con is that it’s apparently hard to find a jeweler who knows how to work with it and is willing to resize it.

I’ve only had palladium rings for a month or so, but they’ve shown little wear, considering how hard I am on them (live on a horse farm). I was even impressed when I didn’t take off a RHR while helping during a move.

I have a palladium e-ring (with moissanite and sapphires). I’m happy with it. I’ve had it about a year and I have not noticed any issues with scratching or looking dull.

@dreams030684:  I have had my palladium e-ring for almost a year and am stil in love with it. The underside is a little scuffed, but that would happen with any band.

My wedding band will be in palladium as well.
