I hope someone knows…that’s intriguing. Also, they should have called it Sterladium. It sounds prettier and seems to convey what it is better…not that the creator asked me. ;p

I saw a ring advertised as 500 palladium and looked it up on the Birmingham assay office website. It’s basically a ring with 500 parts palladium and the rest is other alloys but mostly sterling silver. I googled it and the advice I found on pricescope I think is that it’s lighter, whiter and softer than 950 palladium because of the high silver content. 

 

Is this similar to what the Etsy artist is selling?

 

ETA I didn’t buy the one I saw – the high silver content put me off & it was being sold at a price comparable to 950 palladium even though it had no stones. 

 

I saw it as a ring that’s harder than normal SS but softer than palladium.

@Susanlee178:  I agree! I read that name and went “wow, what horrible branding, it sounds so ugly”

@elley2012:  I just ordered a palladium ring!  It’s similar to platinum, but cheaper.  It’s completely hypoallergenic, so girls who are allergic to WG (as I am) can wear palladium and still have a white-ish ring.  The only negative is that a jeweler has to be trained/familiar with palladium, because it’s slightly harder to work with.  So you just have to find an experienced jeweler in your area if you want it resized.  I can’t wait to get my Palladium ring!!

@ceebree:  Just wanted to add the reason it is cheaper is because it is lighter than platinum but palladium is actually more rare.

@Cummins59:  True!  Forgot to say that.  And it develops a bit of a patina, which you can leave as is, or polish off every so often.

@JoCoJenn:  I’ve seen listings on etsy for “silver palladium” but I don’t know what it’s like or how well it wears over time. they didn’t refer to theirs as “stulladium” though.
