Palladium belongs to the Platinum Group Metals, and like Platinum, is very rare and valuable.Palladium alloyed with a small amount of ruthenium has been used in jewelry, primarily in setting heads. Though lighter and less expensive than platinum, it does not maintain as firm a hold on the stones over the course of wear.

However, Palladium is an excellent metal for molding and customizing jewelry; we have had a lot of success with it here at DBD. It’s a reliable, lasting metal, that maintains it’s original coloring and remains untarnished.
