What is Palladium?

Here at Skylight we’ve been incorporating Palladium into our jewelry, and we’ve been getting a lot of questions about what exactly it is.  So here is some information to help clarify:

  • Palladium is a naturally white metal and will not tarnish.  It does not required rhodium plating and will stay white forever.
  • Palladium is 30 times more rare than gold.
  • Palladium is lighter than platinum, with about half the density of platinum.  Therefore, a piece of jewelry made in palladium would cost and weigh significantly less than the same piece made in platinum.
  • Palladium rarely causes allergic reactions, and if usually a safe alternative for those allergic to white gold.
  • Palladium is durable and wears similarly to platinum.
