Sorry.  Missed the paladium…need more coffee. Can you wear platinum? Palladium and platinum are in the same family of metals. Given the shape of the ering, I’d buy from places with a good return policy. Aslo, you may find more in the UK than the US due to the nicel ban in the UK.

 

Aide-memoire could custom make one: http://aidememoirejewelry.com/blogs/news/9990101-durability

butterbean1 :  On the diamond, if you are buying online…look at that vendors site for a setting (reputable diamond vendors…Brian Gavin, Whiteflash, James Allen, GoodOldGoold, B2C, ID Jewelery, HighPerformanceDiamonds). There are lots of options for a kite set princess stone. What about this setting do you like? Is it the princess diamond or the kite, both? Bezel? If you give some parameters and your budget… I bet the bees can find you options.My observation about the setting you posted is that is look very heavy.

On price, palladium is about halfway between gold and platinum, but lately they are a bit closer in price. Palladium is certainly less weight than platinum. Have you seen palladium in person? It is a bit grayer than platinum.

If you have a budget to consider, my advice if put most of it into the diamond. Find a basic setting (4 corners prongs for a princess). When you can financially, you can upgrade the setting.  Just be aware the number one reason I see princess stones needing repair is the corners are very fragile. So, I like the bezel idea, but executed with a lighter hand. IDJewelery is particulary good at finding well-priced diamonds and have a great bench. 

The primary reason it is hard to find a band is the low gallery AND the kite. Plus, the closed gallery will make keeping the diamond clean REALLY hard. Dirty diamonds can drop two colors and lose their spark. So, if you like a bezel, look for an open gallery. This is a silver CZ, but this kind of kite/bezel would make it much easier to find a straight wedding band and allow you to keep the ring clean.

This is a great setting. About twice the price, but worth looking at. Don’t buy your diamond from this site though…

Forgot to ask…what is the allergy? Gold? Nickel? Other? There are lots of gold alloys without nickel — that can make finding a setting much more affordable.

butterbean1 :  Butterbean. More than likely you are nickel sensitive. Technically, the nickel in the gold reacts to other metals and you react to that (says the nerdy scientist). If it was me, I’d buy the cheapest wide palladium band you can find for a few weeks. Shower, wash hands, use hand cream…everything. See if you react. If so, then you probably are not reacting to the metal, but you have eczema from the moisture and such building up on the ring. I think that setting will still look heavy. The proportion of metal and shape is making if feel really heavy. 

For that setting, no, no ultrasonic will take the place of being able to scrub off the oils and dirt. Ok. For different, how about opening your search to other non-rounds? If you are ok with it, Moissanite is very budget friendly. I’m a total gem nerd and my center stone is an Amora Gem OEC paired with 2 OEC diamonds and 2 diamond pears. 

For Moissy stick with Forever1. These are shown with Foreverbrilliant, but against palladium you’ll see the tint. 

Moissanitebridal has some incredible bezel and semi bezel. These are available in Palladium and with moissanite.
