A beautiful palladium ring with a centre diamond that weighs 1.10 carats. It is a brilliant cut diamond with single cut diamond stepped sides. Palladium is a rare metal from the same family as platinum, it was discovered in 1803 by English chemist William Hyde Wollaston whilst analysing samples of platinum ore, that were obtained in South America. Hyde named it palladium after the asteroid Pallas.
Palladium only gained its own hallmark in July 2009. There are only four precious metals that require a hallmark; silver, gold, platinum, and now palladium.
Palladium, like platinum is a noble bright white metal and it is therefore not affected by oxygen, meaning that it does not rust nor does it corrode. It also means that most acids will not penetrate it and damage the metal, keeping its brightness.
Palladium is about thirty times rarer than gold, and fifteen times rarer than platinum.
This ring is a modern ring in the Art Deco style and is a beautiful design. It would be ideal as an engagement ring.
