Palladium jewelry has grown in popularity in recent years. If you love this unique precious metal, you will find a wide variety of exquisite palladium jewelry and palladium engagement rings from Union Diamond.
Palladium is a rare silver-white metal that was first discovered in 1803 and is part of a group of elements, which is known as the platinum group. Although platinum and palladium have similar chemical properties, palladium is less dense and has a lower melting point compared with other metals in the platinum group.
Initially, palladium was used in jewelry in place of platinum to make white gold. The natural silver white color of palladium made it perfect for this use. In addition, there are fewer allergic reactions when using palladium to make white gold, as opposed to using nickel, which is known for causing allergic reactions in many people. The metal began being used to make white gold in about 1939.
Because it is less dense and lighter than platinum, palladium can be formed into very thin leaves that are used in creating a broad range of jewelry designs. The use of palladium in jewelry expanded greatly during World War II, since platinum was an important resource for the war effort. The metal wasn’t widely used in its own right for jewelry design until 2004 and 2005.
Engagement and wedding rings are crafted in several different metals to provide quality jewelry to fit the individual style preference of each bride. Over the past decade, palladium has become popular for use in jewelry, particularly engagement and wedding rings. You will find a large selection of palladium engagement rings and palladium jewelry at Union Diamond.
