This metal is starting to become very popular for jewelry, including Mother's Rings. Here at Moriarty's Gem Art, we have already created a few palladium mother's rings this year. It started gaining a lot of popularity over the past few years as the price of platinum has increased.
Palladium is a metal in the platinum family. Many people are choosing palladium due to the cost savings compared to Platinum, which if often very expensive, especially in the heavier mount rings that we create here (we don't believe in cheap thin mountings).
~ It does not tarnish or lose whiteness when worn.
~ Does not need to be rhodium plated.
~ Is harder wearing.
~ Slightly darker than platinum and makes Diamonds pop out more.
The price of gold and platinum is always changing, but right now palladium may be a great way to save money and still get the beautiful white look. And palladium is actually rarer than platinum and gold, so the value may continue to increase for this rare metal.
Right now, you can choose any custom mother's ring on our website. They will all be available in palladium. You will need to call for pricing though, as the price for Palladium is changing daily. Just choose a ring and then call us at 800-348-4499 for a custom quote on the the ring.
