My FH’s wedding band is by Scott Kay, but it’s made from Cobalt. It looks like platinum. It’s a new line that uses Cobalt instead of Tungsten or Titanium. I like it because it will not scratch and will not tarnish. The store where we got it didn’t have anything in for women in the Scott Kay line.

Palladium is AWESOME.  If it means a bigger diamond, go for it!

Palladium is well known for it’s hypo-allergenic qualities and affordable metal.  It’s very strong/tough/hard, it’s more difficult to resize.  Personally, I’m for it.

I used to work in a jewellers… Palladium comes from the same group of metals as platinum, so it’s really strong and more scratch-resistant than gold. The reason it is much cheaper is simply because it’s not quite as rare, and it is not in such high commercial demand. in my opinion it’s a great option πŸ™‚ this article might help: http://www.articlefeeder.com/blog/relationships/27149-are-palladium-wedding-rings-better-than-gold-or-platinum

I have heard that palladium is like man made platinum, not sure of the truth to that, but we got FH palladium so I could get platinum.  It was his suggestion so who I am to say anything different!

I have a Scott Kay Palladium engagement ring and I love it.  I’ve worn it for over a year with no problems, so I highly recommend palladium.  It’s far more durable than the white gold and is in the same family as platinum.  I went for durabilty and cost when we picked mine out.  We just ordered my band in palladium as well and I’m so excited for it to get here!  πŸ™‚
