Should You Choose a Palladium Engagement Ring?

Posted in Diamond Engagement Rings by La Vivion on 22nd January, 2014

When choosing an engagement ring, you may find yourself overwhelmed by the choices you have for the band material. Gone are the days when the only decision was whether to have 14 or 18 carat gold; now you can choose between exotic materials including titanium, tungsten and in rare cases meteorite or dinosaur bone. One material that has maintained popularity with engagement ring shoppers in recent years is palladium, which has a number of benefits.


Why Should You Consider a Palladium Engagement Ring?

Until recently, it was difficult to cast palladium engagement rings due to the metal’s preference for forming a porous product. Recent innovations have, however, made casting palladium engagement rings a viable option, and a number of manufacturers now offer palladium engagement rings with diamond settings. Further to this, palladium jewellery in the UK is bound by a compulsory standard, so you know that any palladium item you purchase with the standard mark is of high quality.

With the prices of gold and platinum incredibly high at the moment, it may be worth considering an engagement ring metal that has a slightly lower price. Perhaps the main benefit with palladium engagement rings is therefore the cost, which is almost guaranteed to be significantly less than a comparable ring made of gold or platinum. This makes palladium ideal for younger couples or couples with a smaller budget. But it does not necessarily mean that palladium should be seen as a low-budget option however, as the low price means you can spend more and get a bigger ring than you would do otherwise.

This price difference does not translate to a drop in quality. In fact, palladium engagement rings are much more resistant to wear and tear than their gold counterparts and will last a lifetime with minimal material loss. Palladium is also hypoallergenic, so is far less likely to cause an allergic reaction when compared to gold engagement rings.
