Palladium is strong and durable. It compares favourably with gold for durability. It has a low density, which means it weighs less than platinum - allowing bigger and bolder jewelry designs to be created and worn with ease.
Palladium is becoming the metal of choice for a growing number of fashion-forward jewellery designers and manufacturers, particularly in palladium rings, wedding bands and engagement jewellery. It is typically less expensive than platinum or gold, making it the preference for savvy shoppers who want affordable beautiful jewellery. Its a perfect alternative to platinum for a similar price as 9ct white gold without the inconvenience and cost of regular rhodium plating. However, it requires careful crafting by our experienced jewellers, as, like platinum, it is harder to work with than gold.
Palladium is becoming increasingly popular as a choice for men when it comes to choosing a wedding ring, as it provides the look of platinum without the much greater expense. It is also an elegant alternative to white gold in women’s wedding rings.
The Village Goldsmith uses a combination of the finest quality metals when crafting your piece to enhance the beauty of the design, and with due care and maintenance your piece will be a treasured item in any collection for many years to come.
