Palladium: The Other White Metal
Fashion Forward


Palladium, light, white, and bright, has fast been making a name for itself in bridal jewelry. Now the newest precious metal, which makes the most of its relationship to its costlier cousin platinum, is being fashioned into fashionable earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings. Palladiumís lighter weight makes it an especially good choice for large earrings and long necklaces. The Palladium Alliance International, the industry proponent of the white metal, estimates that more than 25 jewelry companies have begun using palladium in the fine fashion jewelry category in addition to bridal.
