Named after Pallas Athena
deity of the ancient Greeks worshiped as the goddess of wisdom, fertility, the useful arts, and prudent warfare.
One of the world's rarest metals, palladium makes for a special wedding band that's high in quality, hard wearing and highly scratch resistant.
It has a beautiful white colour that has a "richness" not present in silver.
The metal is similar to platinum in that it's hypo-allergenic .
Like the love shared between a married couple, it's strong and doesn't tarnishes over the years. it will naturally stay white without regular maintenance and care, and while it's in the same group as platinum and looks very similar, it's much lighter and so more easily worn than its sister metal .

Argentium ( Silver)
Argentium silver 935 is a modern sterling silver alloy, containing 93.5% silver, in which the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) is modified by removing some of the copper and adding the metalloid germanium. We now use Argentium almost exclusively as it supplied to us with the silver content fully recycled. There is no visual difference in colour between it and Sterling silver.
We also work in all the standard gold alloys... 9kt yellow, white and pink gold and 18kt yellow and white gold.
