Looks more or less the same as platinum, has mostly the same features/strengths, it’s a little lighter and much cheaper. ๐Ÿ˜€ I love it.

My engagement ring is platinum but the plain band in this picture is palladium. It’s a little more scratch resistant than platinum in my experience. Much lighter. A similar color but a little darker/greyer.

The first photo is of my e-ring with my wedding band (and very swollen post-flight fingers!) and the second is obviously just the e-ring. I don’t know how it compares to platinum because I don’t have any, but I like it ๐Ÿ™‚

You can’t really see the metal on mine, but thus far I love it! Honestly I can’t tell the difference between my ring and platinum (color wise) and for the way the heck lower of a price I would say do it! What does your new setting look like? ๐Ÿ™‚

I love palladium! I have had several people ask if it is platinum. From what I hear it is a little less scratch resistant than platinum, but my ring has a couple scratches on it. They’re barely noticable, but I’ll have to take it to a jeweler at some point. Most ma and pop jewelers can work with it, but the chain stores (Kays, Zales, etc) don’t work with it.

My college ring is Palladium and I love it. I really feel I can live my life with it on. put my hands in the dirt and everything. I have had it for 4 years now and all I can say is I wish I had a jewelry cleaning kit to keep it looking its best.

I’ve only had mine for a month, but I’m pretty happy with palladium. I got it for it’s hypoallergenic qualities and it’s lightness. I’m not a huge fan of how heavy platinum rings are. The price was good too. So far I’ve had no allergic reactions and it seems to be very sturdy.

@lilsweetie:  I put my ring next to a white gold necklace that I have in natural light and it’s really hard to tell the difference. The white gold might be a marginally whiter as the palladium seems to have a slightly more bluish tone, but that might also be due to the engraving on my ring. I’d say for all intents and purposes you can’t tell the difference.

@lilsweetie:  My engagement ring is white gold, our wedding bands are palladium. There are some scratches on my wedding band now (having worn it for 1.5 years), but no worse than what’s on my white gold engagement ring.  Keep in mind these photos were taken before our wedding, so the wedding bands are pristine in the photos. ๐Ÿ™‚

Palladium looks a lot like platinum, but it doesn’t get quite as dark over time. It doesn’t have to be redipped like white gold, which is what I love!! Here’s mine:

I’m super happy with my palladium. It looks and wears like platinum but is the weight of gold.
